With just one day to go for my birthday 🎉, in Australian time ( 16 September). l couldn’t help but wonder how much of the life I’m living is truly what God had intended for me? How much of His purposes am l fulfilling? How much of my goals are His? I realised l could actually live a life on earth and never really be who l was created to be.
We were all created by God, and for His purposes.. “Through Him and For Him🙌🏻, l think that’s just powerful..
There are many instances in the bible where we see God bringing an answer to a problem in the world by bringing a baby into the world. Each one of us has a purpose that God put in us, there is a situation that needs a person just like you to help solve. 🔸We have been loved and chosen beforehand , predestined, called , justified and we will also be glorified.
The birth of an answer 🔹Jesus was born to bring Salvation “She will give birth to a Son, and you shall name Him Jesus (The LORD is salvation), for He will save His people from their sins.” MATTHEW 1:21 AMP
🔸Samuel was an answered prayer for Hannah and a prophet appointed by God “And all Israel from Dan [in the north] to Beersheba [in the south] knew that Samuel was appointed as a prophet of the LORD.” 1 SAMUEL 3:20 AMP
🔹John the Baptist – was born to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. “It is he who will go as a forerunner before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, TO TURN THE HEARTS OF THE FATHERS BACK TO THE CHILDREN, and the disobedient to the attitude of the righteous [which is to seek and submit to the will of God]–in order to make ready a people [perfectly] prepared [spiritually and morally] for the Lord.”LUKE 1:17 AMP
🔸Paul “Paul, an apostle (special messenger, personally chosen representative) of Christ Jesus (the Messiah, the Anointed) by the will of God, …COLOSSIANS 1:1 AMP
Jeremiah -““Before I formed you in the womb I knew you [and approved of you as My chosen instrument], And before you were born I consecrated you [to Myself as My own]; I have appointed you as a prophet to the nations.””
JEREMIAH 1:5 AMP
I can’t imagine how our lives would have turned out if these Great people in the Bible had not lived out their purposes in God.
And I am beginning to see more and more the importance of living in the will of God. Generations to come depend on our obedience.
7 Things about me 😊
1. I am a nurse
the first born in a family of two
3️⃣ l love to worship God, I don’t like to be called a singer though, I am a minstrel 🙂
4️⃣ l have a crazy sense of humour 😂
5️⃣ I love ❤️ God, He is my daily bread, the air l breathe..
6️⃣ I enjoy writing and reading.
7️⃣ l believe that l have the ability to relate to different kinds of people, l love to love, to be resourceful and useful.
So l am brought to a time of reflection, and a time of pressing in to God, praying that He may grant us the grace to live out our purpose, giving birth to those things that He has put in us.
I hope this encourages you to see your birthday 🎉 in a even more special way and challenges you to seek out God’s purposes for your life.
