Verse of the Day 3-20-21


For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.-Ephesians 2:10

You were created for a purpose and you are not here by accident. God doesn’t make mistakes, which means you are not a mistake. In the book of Jeremiah God says this: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart” (Jeremiah 1:5 NIV). You are special because God created you and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. You were put here on this earth to do good works for God. You have a unique calling from God. You have a mission here on earth that only you can perform. So don’t let the circumstances of your life hold you back from the mission God has called you from. The last part of Jeremiah 1:5 says this: “I appointed you as a prophet to the nations”. Jeremiah responds in much the same way you or I would. He says this to God: “‘Alas, Sovereign Lord,’ I said, ‘I do not know how to speak; I am too young'” Jeremiah 1:6 NIV). God responds to Jeremiah with these words: “But the Lord said to me, ‘Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,’ declares the Lord” (Jeremiah 1:7-8 NIV). Remember these things today: God created to be unique and special, God created you for a purpose so don’t let anyone or anything hold you back from fulfilling God’s purpose for your life.
