11/08/17 Why You've Been Born
“When I decided to give you breath, I had a plan for your life in mind. My plan was for you to affect your world for Jesus. I allowed the events in your life to take place for the single purpose of eventually making you like Him in every way. I knew what it would take to bring you to Jesus, and I know what it is going to take to have you serve Him with all your heart.
"For your information, you representing Him and your fellowship with Me are very important to Me. They are why you have been born. Everything else is secondary. Do you consider Our relationship and your representation the priorities of your life? Do they take precedence over everything else that occurs? Maybe it’s time for you to get completely in step with My plans.”
Esther 4:14 AMP
For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance shall arise for the Jews from elsewhere, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows but that you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this and for this very occasion?
Jer. 29:11 AMP
For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.
II Cor. 5:20a NIV
We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us.
I John 1:3 AMP
What we have seen and [ourselves] heard, we are also telling you, so that you too may realize and enjoy fellowship as partners and partakers with us. And [this] fellowship that we have [which is a distinguishing mark of Christians] is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ (the Messiah).
Whether there seem to be few challenges in our lives or whether our lives are full of challenges that seem never-ending and impossible to overcome, you can be absolutely certain that God is with us. He is fulfilling His plan in us.
My place is to get in step with You, Lord,
