Read Psalm 139
Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.” (v. 16)
I am here because a purposeful God planned my existence!
The secular world would like you to believe that your life has no meaning of its own, no higher purpose, that your life is the random outcome of a chance series of events emerging out of hundreds of millions of years of chaos.
But in this Psalm, God is saying to you, “I was intimately involved in making you. I have plans for you. You fit into what I am doing in this world.”
You may have been born into a cruel home and grown up in hard circumstances. You may not even like yourself. But from God’s perspective you have been uniquely shaped to fit his good plan for you.
If you have not yet discovered God’s plan for your life, I encourage you to begin focusing on your spiritual life. Spend time with God in prayer. Read his word, the Bible. Listen to what he is saying to you about your life.
As you get yourself in a place where you are spiritually sensitive to God, you will find that he is leading you forward daily in his will for you.
