We’re not here by chance! (Day 2)

on February 23, 2012

“God doesn’t play dice.” — Albert Einstein

This morning’s lesson from The Purpose Driven Life tells us that we aren’t here by a mere crap shoot.  The God of love, in His infinite wisdom and power, created us to love on us.  The Word tells us of this fact: “Long before he laid down earth’s foundations, he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love.” (I Corinthians 2:7, MSG).  When you really reflect on this scripture, how comforted do you feel?

It comforts me to know the Lord knows every detail of my life, every nuance of what makes me who I am.  He created me with natural abilities and gifts, and has given me a unique and wonderful personality.  

Our task today and everyday is to accept and embrace this fact, for we are “fearfully and wonderfully made.” (Psalm 139:14a, NIV).  And when we know who we are and whose we are, we live in the spirit of boldness and with divine authority (Romans 12:3, MSG).
