You were fearfully and wonderfully made so that God could receive the ultimate glory from your lives. The greatest thing you must do is seek him to find out what his will is for your life. If you don’t you set yourself up to become just another statistic. Is that what you want for your life? Well it isn’t what God wants. He took his time to form you in your mother’s womb because he knew that his destiny for you was greatness. I’m not talking about stuff. I’m not talking about big houses, and fancy cars, and lots of money. I’m talking about greatness God’s way. In each of you God determines what your greatness is, but you have to seek him to find out what it is.
See people, even if they mean well might look at what you hold and think they are worthless rocks, but God looks at them and sees giant killers. Some might look at your life and see you as an unknown, no great story to tell, but God looks at you and says you are favored (like Mary) because you have been chosen for a purpose that God wants to fulfill only through you.So today, I ask you, what do you choose? Do you want to step into the path that God has for you? You can make that step today. If you don’t know the Lord you first have to accept the gift of salvation so that God can anoint your life with his Holy Spirit and plant in you his purpose for your life. That is only the beginning. There is a process that must follow.
Don’t get discouraged if things don’t turn around quickly. If you confess Jesus as your savior, don’t let the devil tell you, you are not saved. Accept by faith and move as he leads. If you are saved, but simply have not figured out what to do next, then seek God for his direction so that you can begin to walk in the purpose he has just for you. So that he can anoint your gifts so that you can take your place and use your talents for his glory. You are destined for greatness, not because of who you are, or where you’ve been, or who you know, but simply because of who God is. Another awesome thing about God is this.
What if you are living a life a statistic right now? You don’t have to stay that way. God can forgive any transgression, which means sin and move you from a statistic to sanctified. He can move you from a sinner to saved. You are destined for greatness because you are fearfully and wonderfully made. So today, allow God to anoint you and begin to reveal to you what his purpose for you is. And then through whatever bitterness you might face, it is only to sweeten the completion of what God wants to do in you. Don’t allow the circumstances and situations of life to make you doubt that God wants to do something with your life. Hold on to his hand and turn your back on the negative but turn to God instead. He is the one that formed you in your mother’s womb, so he knows what he destined you for. Will you allow him to lead you to your purpose? Sometimes when I preach, I like to end with a poem. I wrote this in 2005, take a listen.
