God Made Me To Be Me

Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

We all have things to accomplish and do according to His will and purpose for our lives. And each of us, although one body in Christ, are distinctly different from each other. We all have different jobs to do in this lifetime and all are according to who we are. God made me because He needed someone like me. And He made you, because He needed someone like you.

Psalm 119:73 -Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments.

When He made us, it was with love and with the opportunity to serve Him fully, and freely. And do what He calls us to do. By what He planned for us to do. Serving Him, is a blessing as we adhere to His commandments, and follow Him daily. When we believe in Him and aspire to do all things in His name for His glory, we are able to realize the full capacity of who we are, through Him and Him and alone.

John 1:12 -But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

He knew us before we were born and had already appointed our roles in life. He formed us to do things that were made specifically for each of us and knew beforehand what we would excel at. What our weaknesses are, what my strengths are.  He placed us in our mother’s wombs and formed us. We were created by our Royal Father, God Almighty, and therefore brought here with a purpose and a job to do.

Psalm 139:13-For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.

If we walk the path in which He guides us and do things that we are supposed to do, we can expect great rewards. The LORD wants us to be successful in all things. And when we do what we were created to do, we undoubtedly will live life in a way that we otherwise would not be able to do, without His guidance and His will.

Jeremiah 29:11– For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Do you ever take the time to think-God created you to be YOU? Or that we are who we are, because of Him? Do you ever think about what you were created for?  And most of all, do you know how much God loves you? (John 3:16). Remember that God made you to be you, and He loves you just the way you are, imperfections and all.  Can you think of anything better than being loved by the King of kings and Lord of lords?  Amen!

“Father, thank You for creating me, and giving me gifts that come straight from Your hands of grace, thank You for loving me, and for giving me the opportunities to serve You, may I continue to do all according to Your plan and purpose and Your will, and may I continue to glorify You all the days of my life in Jesus’ name, Amen.”

  1. “Living your God-given life involves remaining faithful to your true self. It entails distinguishing your true self from the demands and voices around you and discerning the unique vision, calling, and mission the Father has given you. It requires listening to God from within yourself and understanding how he has uniquely made you. Knowing your personality, temperament, likes and dislikes, thoughts, and feelings all contribute to your discovery.” Sadly, however, “the vast majority of us go to our graves without knowing who we are. We unconsciously live someone else’s life, or at least someone else’s expectations for us” (Quotes are from “Emotionally Healthy Spirituality” by Peter Scazzero, pgs 80 and 66).
