You can trust the purpose of the one who created you and knows the number of hairs on your head. He set you apart BEFORE you were born, which means He had a specific purpose for you BEFORE He even created you. You were made and created specifically for that purpose. Custom made I like to call it.
“Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” Luke 12:7 | 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.” Jeremiah 1:5 | NIV
You can trust His purposes for you know they are good, great, mighty, and firm.
“The Lord said, “Surely I will deliver you for a good purpose” Jeremiah 15:11a | NIV
“Great are your purposes and mighty are your deeds.” Jeremiah 32:19b | NIV
“God is mighty, but despises no one; he is mighty, and firm in his purpose.” Job 36:5 | NIV
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28c | NIV
“In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will” Ephesians 1:11 | NIV
“But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.” Psalms 33:11 | NIV
“He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time” 2 Timothy 1:9 | NIV
His purpose for you was predestined. It is eternal. How amazing it is to think that His purpose is FOREVER. Trust His purpose and know that He will use it for good.
“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” Proverbs 19:21 | NIV
“In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.” Proverbs 16:9 | NIV
If you are like me you make your own plans and purposes. In your heart and mind you decide on how things should be and the order they should be in. Sadly I’ve done this many times before ever bringing them to The Lord. Over time and through my own difficult life experiences I’ve witnessed how God’s plans and purposes are not only much different than my own, but they are mighty and they greater than any plans or purposes I could dream up.
“Now to him who is able to do IMMEASURABLY MORE than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us”
Ephesians 3:20 | NIV
You created me with a special, one of a kind purpose in mind. Father, forgive me when the plans in my heart are many and different than what you have predestined for me. I trust your mighty purpose and that it is forever. In all things-good, bad, and even terrible, your purposes work for good. Give me peace that in that. I love you Lord.
In Jesus’ precious name I pray.
