A Plan and A Purpose

I ask myself from time to time as I look around me at the trials and tribulations I am going through, who I am and why am I even here.

* I know I am a child of God because I believe in Jesus and have received His gift of salvation. Acts 16:31

* I know I have received an inheritance because of Jesus' death on the cross for me and He now lives in me. Ephesians 1

* I realize God knew me while I was being formed in my mother's womb. Psalms 139

Once in a while, I still wonder about my existence and place in this world.

Jeremiah 29:11 says the Lord has plans for me, plans not of harm or pain, but to give me a hope and a future. I truly must choose to stand on these words, sometimes daily when the storms get so fierce and I am being tossed to and fro by unmerciful waves. I must believe God has great plans for me and cares about the smallest affairs of my life. He feeds the birds and surely I am more to him than fowl of the air. I am the apple of His eye. I can be secure in His love for me, and I know He will let nothing happen tome outside of His will for my life. With God on my side, what could mere man do to me.

I have all these promises and so many more. Maybe my focus is all wrong. I should be keeping my eyes on the One who created me, not the circumstances I often create for myself. Let me encourage you to do the same. No one compares to Him. Almighty God, King of Kings, Lord of Lords.

What more significance could we ever need?
