WEEK 4: Not by accident!
"You were designed ON PURPOSE! ....not by accident." ~Linette
"Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother’s womb... You know me inside and out...You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you,
The days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day." Psalm 139:13-16 The Message
ACCIDENT: undesired event happening that is unexpected, unintentional and usually results in harm, injury, damage, or loss;
You my friend are anything but an accident! Look at the definition of "ACCIDENT" again. Can you see anything that even remotely describes you? I think not.
Everything God does is intentional.
Even creating you.
Before you were formed, God "knew you". He had in mind your purpose when He was drawing up the blueprint for your unique design.
Does the enemy of your soul ever come at you with words like...
"You're not good enough"
"You just don't belong"
"God can't use you, you're not perfect"
"You are an accident, broken, unfit."
"You will never reach your dream."
"Just give up."
WOW!!! Those words were way too easy to write, maybe because I have heard them over and over again throughout my lifetime. Today I say, NO MORE!! Today, let's you and I choose to believe God's words of TRUTH vs. the LIES of the enemy.
GOD'S TRUTH tell's us:
"Sweetheart, you ARE GOOD ENOUGH!! I made you just right, just the way I pictured you."
"You are my precious child, YOU BELONG TO ME!"
"Honey, I WANT TO USE YOU, I know you are a work in progress, just like all my kids. You have some great stuff on the inside of you & I can use that great stuff RIGHT NOW, right where you are."
"I created YOU, ON PURPOSE, for a purpose...you are no accident!"
"I put those dreams on the inside of you, listen to my voice and I will help you achieve those dreams."
"NEVER GIVE UP! Sometimes you just need to adjust your sails and let the wind of my Spirit move you to where you need to be."
For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10
So, you are not perfect, who is? Think about one thing you do well, and set your sail in that direction today!
