Encouragement for your daily walk with God
As a Christ follower, how can you explain yourself except that God designed you for your purpose? For example, how is it that you can diagnose the problem of your car’s engine by the noise it makes? Or, how can you make a mouth watering dessert without a recipe? Or, how do you remember the names of every person you just met at a conference? How do you explain such idiosyncrasies or quirks of skill? God!
He knows what is most needed and designs people with varying abilities to meet those needs. God knew that Israel needed a code to live by, so He gave Moses a burning love for the law. He knew that Gentiles needed a fiery evangelist to awaken their need of a Savior, so He set Paul’s heart ablaze. He knew the doctrine of grace would need an advocate, so He reformed the heart of Martin Luther. God knows just what this generation needs too, so He designed you! The way He designed you is the path of your destiny.
Never doubt for a moment that God made you exactly the way He wanted you to be—the way He wants you to minister in this sin-sick world.
If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 4:11
