“For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world.” – John 18:37
God has a plan for our lives that is complete in every detail. The Sovereign of the universe leaves nothing to chance. The life of Jesus is a prime example. His coming as a Babe in Bethlehem, His earthly ministry, His death and His resurrection all took place according to Gods’ purpose. To show that Jesus was determined to do His fathers’ will, Luke wrote, “He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem” (Luke 9:51). Jesus’ death was no turn of fate – it was a fulfillment of Gods’ plan. He had come to give His life a ransom for the sins of the world.
It is also true that the life of every Christian has been designed by the heavenly Father to fulfill a specific purpose. C.H. Spurgeon said, “I will never have it that God created any man, especially Christian man, to be a blank, and to be a nothing. He made you for an end. Find out what that end is; find out your niche and fill it.”
We must learn to view the events of our life from the divine perspective. God has a plan for our lives. Knowing this will cause us to look for ways to serve Him and glorify Him in everything we do. We have a sense of destiny because we know that God has placed us where we are for a purpose. – PRV
DUTIES BELONG TO US; RESULTS BELONG TO GOD.
