(So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.)
Jeremiah 1:5 NIV
(Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.)
(This is what the LORD says he who made you, who formed you in the womb, and who will help you. Do not be afraid, Jacob, my servant, Jeshurun, whom I have chosen)
This are just few of the verses that shows that God formed us for a greater purpose and He did not make a mistake when forming you. You are not a mistake.
Our birth was no mistake, mishap, or a fluke of nature. Our parents might have not known God’s plans for our lives, but God did. He was not at all surprised by our births. In fact, God expected it. So even now whatever you are going through God knows about it and He has your back covered.
Everything that is taking place right now in your life has already happened in the mind of God. It is not fate, nor chance, nor luck, nor coincidence that yoh are going through hard times. You are alive because God wanted to create you!
God prescribed every single detail of our lives. He deliberately chose the current situation we are going through, the color of our skin, our hair, and every other feature. He custom-made our bodies just the way He wanted it. He also determined the natural talents we would possess and the uniqueness of our personality. The Word of God says:
You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something (Psalm 139:15)
Because God made you for a reason, He also decided what will happen in our life. He planned the days of your life in advance, choosing the exact time of your birth and death.
The Word of God says, You saw me before I was born and scheduled each day of my life before I began to breathe.
God left no detail to chance. He planned it all for His purpose. Nothing in your life is arbitrary. It’s all for a purpose.
Most amazing, God decided how you would be born. Regardless of the circumstances God had a plan in creating you. It doesn’t matter whether you are rich,poor, healthy, sick, educated or uneducated. God knew what we possess.
There are no illegitimate children. Many children are unplanned by their parents, but they are not unplanned by God. God’s purpose took into account human error, and even sin.
God never does anything accidentally, and He never makes mistakes. He has a reason for everything He creates. We were designed with a purpose in mind.The Word of God says:
(Long before he laid down earth’s foundations, he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love)
God loves and values us. Our lives has profound meaning. We discover that meaning and purpose only when we make God the reference point of our lives.
We all go through hardships, in fact, no one is immune. I know first hand, how hardship can lead to circumstances and troubles that seem very grim. Understand that in the midst of our troubles, God understands and He can turn our mistakes and hardships into miracles. All because He is a Good good Father to us.
Maybe you have done wrong things. You’ve made some wrong choices. You’ve done what you knew you shouldn’t do and now you’re suffering the consequences of those mistakes. Regardless of any mistakes or hardship, you must turn it into a beautiful experience. if you will turn to God, He is prepared to take your mistake, your awful circumstance, and turn it into a miracle.
A great example of how God can work in a miraculous way is the story of Joseph ( Genesis 37-47)
Joseph’s brothers hated him and threw him into a pit. Then they sold him as a slave, and he was taken to a foreign country. People lied about him, and as a result, he was thrown into prison. Many bad things happened to Joseph. But God took care of him through it all. And in the end he became the prime minister over all of Egypt. The Lord took all the tragedy in Joseph’s life and turned it into a wonderful miracle that not only blessed Joseph but ended up saving the lives of his family and countless others in the land of Egypt and throughout the known world.
God has not changed. He can do the same thing for you. Regardless of the circumstance you’re in, with God on your side, you can’t lose.
Remember that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
And all things includes your failures, your mistakes, and even the attacks of the devil.
God has given us the Will to endeavor whatever comes our way.
