DESIGNED WITH A PURPOSE IN MIND

God knows everything about you.  You are not here by chance, but were designed with a special plan and purpose for your life (you are special).  He knew who your parents would be, and He gave you family to support and encourage you.  He gave you friends to laugh with and teachers to help you learn.  He gave you an abundance of food to enjoy, clothes so you could look nice, and a warm bed to sleep in.  He gave you things to enjoy, books to read, and TVs to watch.

What does God want?  Only that you listen to Him (obey Him) and love Him back by loving those around you.  He loved you so much that He sent His only Son to die on a cross for anything you ever did or ever will do that is wrong.  He says that if you believe in Him, you will have everlasting life full of love, joy, peace, happiness, and contentment.  But the very hairs of your head are all numbered” (Matt. 10:30).

PRAYER FOR TODAY

Lord, help me to realize that without You, I would have nothing … be nothing … do nothing.  You know everything I need before I do; today I believe Your favor rests on me.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY

Do you believe God?
