Ephesians 2:10 (New International Version)
For we are God’s workmanship,
created in Christ Jesus to do good works,
which God prepared in advance for us to do.
If ever there was a verse in the bible that confirms God created humans with a purpose in mind, this is it. There are many other verses that speak of God’s many purposes for us mortals, but this is probably my personal favorite. It is so exciting to me to know that God is not a fly-by-the-seat-of-the-pants kind of God.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy spontaneity as much as any type A personality can, I suppose. But my heart swells with excitement over the thought that the God of the Universe has a plan prepared for me, Sheeri Mitchell. And he didn’t make it 10 minutes ago, either. He prepared his plan in advance – and not for show, but for me to execute! And the best part is – if this principle is true for me, then it is true for you, too.
This does not necessarily mean that God is predictable. But it does mean that you are not a number. You are not an accident. God created you with his purpose in mind. He’s got good works that he wants you to carry out. Doesn’t it do you heart good to know that your life is more than the sum of its parts? It resonates with meaning.
I can’t speak for anyone else, but I want to know moment by moment what good works God has planned for me. I don’t want to miss one thing out of this life. If the past proves correct, his plans outshine mine anyway – hands down. So I want to know.
How about you? Are you curious about what God has lined up for you?
Ask him. His answer may surprise you.
Be blessed, Family!
