Why Was I Born?

Good afternoon,
have you ever asked the question “Why was I born?” If so, I can assure you, you are not alone. It is a very common thing for mankind to ask this question. Well, what did you come up with? I can tell you absolutely and positively that every one of us has a purpose for being, and that not one of us is on this earth by accident. I know this because our Heavenly Father has a specific task and destiny for each one of us. In Psalm 139:16 the Bible says,
“Your eyes saw my unformed substance, and in Your book all the days [of my life] were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there was none of them.”
This is saying that God saw you before you were even in your mother’s womb. Meaning, you were on God’s mind before you were even conceived. WOW! How amazing is that! The scripture goes on to say that there is a book about you in Heaven, and that this book records all of His plans for your life, even before you see them taking shape. How great is it to realize that God has known you before you ever breathed your first breath, and that His purposes and plans for your life predate you living even one day! The other thing you must know from this is that if God knew you and wrote your life story before you ever lived a day, then He also created you with all of your idiosyncrasies and differences to perfectly suit His plans. So, be exactly who you are – an original you- so that you may fulfill His will for you. Until next time, may you walk in God’s peace, love, and favor and remember to be in the Lord’s house this weekend.
God bless,
Pastor Johnny
