Life Is Meant For Living

‘Even before I speak, you already know what I will say.’ Psalm 139:4 GNT
Did you know that no one on earth has the same eye colour or finger print as you? How amazing – no one else in all the world. God is the greatest designer, with an artist’s eye for colour and an architect’s intricate attention to detail. When he set about making you, not only did he make you like no other, but he knew what plan he had for your life even before he spoke, ‘Let there be light’, and the sun was born. He knows you better than your mates or your Mum and Dad do, and he knows you better than you know yourself. Check this: ‘Even before I speak, you already know what I will say’ (Psalm 139:4 GNT). Doesn’t that blow your mind?
You might be saying to yourself, ‘Why does he bother with me?’ Listen: ‘For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things he planned for us long ago’ (Ephesians 2:10 NLT). God has unlimited time just for you. He can’t get enough of you. You make him happy.
The whole point of creation was for God be in a relationship with you. Yes – to be your God but also your best friend. Just like an artist loves their work, God is passionate about his prize creation, you are his ‘handiwork’.
So what now? Know this – you are loved and you have a purpose. Life is meant for living – enjoy!
