God saved us from ourselves to have a personal relationship with us. You and I were created by God for God! He has a wonderful plan for your life.
Most don’t believe that statement. They think that after their birth God looked down from heaven, sighed, and questioned—“What on earth am I going to do with her?”
That’s not how it works. Before you were born, God knew you. Before you were saved, God was shaping your life. He was molding everything about you. The truth is…the Christian life is a relationship with a Person (God) who has taken upon himself the responsibility of shaping and molding you until you are the person He wants and desires you to be. As you begin walking with God, everything he is working in you becomes real and complete.
Most people want to know immediately what God is preparing them for. Is God going to shape me into a lawyer; a mother; a fashion designer; a missionary, or a writer??? Perhaps…but that’s not the thing He’s working toward most. God has more for your life than that!
Are you ready… God is preparing you and me for ….Himself! There’s no greater privilege; no greater joy or satisfaction than knowing God. It’s what we were made for.
Do you know Miley Cyrus’ new hit song? Forgive me if I don’t have all the words right, but I heard some deep rooted truth in her lyrics while listening along with my kids. The song talks about dreams. In the midst of making dreams come true Miley sings, “There’s always going to be a mountain that needs to be moved; the realization that sometimes you’ll lose.” BUT, she continues, “It’s not about getting to the top of the mountain or what’s on the other side.” (Read that sentence again)
It’s about the climb!
The Christian life is about the climb. It’s about our journey with God. When we’re focused on knowing Him and walking with Him, then one day, we’ll look back and realize we lived the dream. God’s dream.
