You Were Created For This

I have some encouragement for you today regarding this world in chaos that we find ourselves in.  The world is in chaos because it has rejected the living God, our God, the Lord Jesus Christ.  That said, be encouraged in this world because it was no accident you find yourself right here, right now.  God Almighty, all knowing and all powerful in His infinite wisdom put us here on this earth with our talents and abilities in this season of the earth's history.  You may not know what you are doing.  You may feel like your head is spinning while you watch this world spin out of control but do not despair.  We are the foot soldiers who carry out the orders of the most brilliant General in world history.  Our Commander in Chief knows how this story began and how it ends.  He also knows every detail or what will happen and what needs to happen in between.

You and I both were created for this.  Trust the Lord to work out His will through you.  You and I only have the ability to see whats directly in front of our face.  We do not see the long term strategy being worked out by the Almighty.   Each one of us has certain strengths and abilities/talents that were put on this earth to be used at the pleasure of the Almighty.  Our job is to develop and maintain whatever our talents are so at just the right time we can be effectively employed by God Almighty for His glory and according to His purposes.

Be encouraged.  Dive deep into the faith and be rooted in it.  Hold onto the spiritual treasure that has been entrusted to you.  Do you part by knowing the Lord God and walking with Him in close communion each and every day.  Do your job by knowing and loving the Lord our God.

These are the thoughts ^^ that have been impressed upon this writer's heart over the past 30 days or so.  Glory to God.

grace and peace
