And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Romans 8:28-29
Every person is called according to God’s purpose. Yes, that means YOU! God has called you to a destiny and a life that He planned for you. God isn’t controlling your life; rather, He knows your gifts, your desires, your capacity and based
on this, He designed the perfect destiny just for YOU. This includes your marriage, family, career, ministry, friends and areas of influence. In addition, when you are walking in your purpose, loving God and serving God, all things work together for your good! What an incredible promise! No matter what hardships or negative circumstances come your way, you can rest assured that God is working on your behalf to bring good things out of any adversity.
What specifically is God’s purpose for your life? It’s right up there in the scripture. His purpose for your life is to be conformed to the image of His Son. Because this is the real YOU. This is the best YOU. And this, is the YOU that you deeply desire to be. You become conformed to His image as you pray and read the Bible, and as you meditate on God’s promises. As you grow each day, becoming more and more like Jesus, your fears will melt away, your worries and anxieties will decrease, the emotional pains from failure and loss will begin to dissolve, and you will experience the true soul prosperity God desires for you to have. You have a purpose. It’s to be like Jesus. It’s to BE YOU!
Be conscious today to be like Jesus. Meditate on Jesus’ words and begin to renew your mind to the mind of Christ. Relax and rest assured that as God’s Word is working in you, you are becoming more like Him.
Father, I believe You have predestined me to be able to become more like Jesus every day. Holy Spirit, help me
Furthermore, because we are united with Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for he chose us in advance, and he makes everything work out according to his plan. Ephesians 1:11 (nlt)
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 (nlt)
If the whole body were an eye, how would you hear? Or if your whole body were an ear, how would you smell anything? But our bodies have many parts, and God has put each part just where he wants it. How strange a body would be if it had only one part! Yes, there are many parts, but only one body. The eye can never say to the hand, “I don’t need you.” The head can’t say to the feet, “I don’t need you.” In fact, some parts of the body that seem weakest and least important are actually the most necessary. 1 Corinthians 12:17-22 (nlt)
