Today as I have been pondering our Father’s Word, He leads my contemplation over a statement I recently read that says: “If your story isn’t as meaningful or significant or compelling as you want it to be, you can change it.” I want to encourage your hearts wherever you are in life, dear family, that our Father has created each one of us divinely and when He created us, He saw us as good!!! He tells us we are fearfully and wonderfully made and that we are His workmanship, created in advance for good works that He planned before the beginning of time for us to do. Given that, when we seek Jesus as our Savior from the wages of personal sin that the enemy of this world inflicted upon all people, we are forgiven and forever reconciled into a forever loved relationship with He who created us!!! He has eternal good plans for us as He says:
“For I know the plans that I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
So as we ponder about who we are and what our life should all be about, Jesus is the One that we should always turn to for guidance in our lives!!! Nobody or anything else in life is the One who knows the plans of purpose that were laid out when we were created like Jesus!!! In seeking our Father’s will in life, His Word tells us:
“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–His good, pleasing and perfect will.”
Romans 12:2 NIV
“Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take.”
Proverbs 3:6 NLT
“Take delight in the LORD, and He will give you your heart’s desires.”
Psalm 37:4 NLT
As we seek our Father, He gives us the desire of heart to carry out our purpose in life and it is in keeping with all the gifts, talents, skills, abilities and personality, etc. that He put into us when He created us to live out our divine story in this world!!! Jesus invites us to “come to Him” and as we do, our story is divinely written!!!!
We see that when we look at those in Biblical times that beckoned to His call, divine life changing things happened…
“Come follow me and I will make you fishers of men.”
“Let the little children come unto me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.”
“Come and have breakfast!”
“Come to me, all you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”
- “Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.”
- Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”
- “No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them, and I will raise them up on the last day.”
- “All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.”
- “Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
Whenever someone hears the beckoning of Jesus to come to Him, the divine life happens and the divine story that was intended for your life from the beginning will be what is written!!! Is there somewhere in your life that you want to see changed, family – something you want to do, an issue or circumstance you need help with??? If so, our sweet Jesus is just the one to write His beautiful story upon your life and mine too as we seek Him as this song says here. Perhaps it will be a big life change obvious to many, a small change in life, or maybe just a change of an internal perspective??? Only He knows what we need as we seek Him, but the best resource to seek for victory is always Jesus!!! He is all-wise, all-powerful, all love, all good, all right and all victorious in bringing about the eternal victory plan that has been since the beginning for each of us!!! What is He asking you and I to do and what is He asking you and me to trust Him in??? No matter where we are in life, we can know this, Jesus says “Come as you are.” He sees you and and me and says “it (we) are good!!!” He believes in each one of us to be here where we are for divine reasons!!! Now how awesome is that!!! You and Father with you are awesome and He who has began a good work in us is going to continue it until the day of completion which is the day He returns!!! Now how exciting it is to be part of His divine story for each one of us, uniquely special just as He writes it moment by moment upon our hearts by His Holy Spirit that leads us each one personally!!! Oh I love that continual sovereign guidance He gives to us as His kids and it just makes me smile!!! 🙂 I’m a gal following His beckoning with you in this life and sooo privileged to be doing life with our King of Glory forever!!!
Enjoy the presence of His love with you guiding you personally and His delight in who you are as His royal child forever!!! Now that is a beautiful well-written story of our faith life through His all-sufficient grace for us right there – forever saved by grace for the divine life!!! We have won with Jesus already!!!
