Ever wondered in your heart why you are here, and is there really a plan and purpose for your life? Does God actually have something important for you to do? And if so, how do I find out what it is and walk in it? Ps 139:16 says…
“Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”
In other words, God planned your destiny before you were even born. He is the Master Potter who sculpted you and brought your life into existence. Even before you were formed in your mother’s womb, God was sketching out your life.
What life did God design for you?
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
If you look up the word “hope” used in this verse, you will find that it means, “an expectation for the thing that one longs for.” God has things that He longs for to happen in your life. What are they? According to Jeremiah it is to experience peace not evil, and to have a bright expectation of what lays ahead.
Up to your neck
Life can be overwhelming at times. When you’re up to your neck in alligators, it’s difficult to keep your mind on the fact that your primary objective is to drain the swamp. But in the middle of the battle, God wants you to discover the power of hope. Hope that will give a second-wind in your pursuit of, and living-out God’s purposes and destiny for your life.
