When you are recreated in Christ and born into a new life in God, He will begin to reveal to you your identity in Him. He will show you who you are in Him and who He is in you. He then helps you to discover what you were put here to do. Just as it was prepared ahead of time for Abraham to be the father of many nations, prepared ahead of time for Jesus to be the mediator of a new covenant, God has prepared ahead of time your course and the good works He will use you to complete in your life! It’s great news to know that before you were formed in your mother’s womb, God knew you and had a plan for your life. (Jeremiah 1:5) God was thinking about you all this time. He was thinking about what would fulfill you the most, what would make you happy and what good works He could use you to do that would bring Him the most glory. He planned it all and set the stage, waiting for you to discover it and begin walking in it. Don’t fear how it will all come about. Don’t question your capabilities to do the task at hand. Remember, it all will be done through His wonderful grace. Just keep walking into the great unknown, understanding that it was all predetermined and planned beforehand! God plans to be glorified in your life in a great way and you’re right on schedule!
“For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship),recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].” Ephesians 2:10 (AMP)
Thank You for all that You have provided for me. You’ve given me a new life in You, a new identity, a predetermined purpose, and the grace to do it. I am forever grateful. Help me to discover Your purpose for me. Help me to keep moving forward, knowing that You are with me every step of the way. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
