“But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.” – 1 Peter 2:9
Sometimes our lives become difficult and we forget we were designed by God and for God. We were created to bring His Presence into our time of living on this earth. The Word of God is filled with God’s promises and God’s direction for our time on this earth. When we take on the task of trying to manage our own life without the map and direction given to us in His Word we fall from our created purpose.
God says, “I know the plans I have for you” (Jeremiah 29:11). Luke 12:7 tells us that every hair on our head is numbered—that is how concerned with us God is.
We were placed on this earth, at this time, to bring forth and restore the awesome love of God in people living around us.
We must ask ourselves, “Am I doing what I was created in His likeness to do? Do I love unconditionally? When people walk out of my presence do they feel like they have been in the Presence of God?” Do we use our relationship with God to bring someone to know Who God is?
Remember, you are here to make God’s glory known. You are not here by accident. You have a purpose you were designed for. You must pour God into the people you meet. You must shine His light into a darkened world. Don’t just be all YOU can be. Be who you were created to be!
