For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works,
which God prepared in advance for us to do. Eph 2:10
Can you wrap your head around this verse? You were made in the image of God, His workmanship. You have been crafted and created by design. That design was set up before you were born so that you would move towards the Lords purposes, accept Him as Lord and start doing good things that put a smile on His face. You've had other options. All of us have. But at some point we all realize that someone has their eye on us. Someone is watching over us.
Your life has purpose: to bring His glory into the lives of those that you are in fellowship with. As you build your relationship with Him, you will begin to see that design and enjoy all that comes with walking it out. Blessings will overtake you! Favor will surround you!
So many times we are bombarded by bad news, ambushed by difficulties and adverse circumstances. That is part of life. But when we realize that we were made to survive in these times we begin to gain confidence and that confidence compels us to do good whenever we have the chance.
You were made to succeed. You were created to do good works. He set you up that way. The question is...will you do it His way?
