You’re an on-purpose person


“Long before he laid down earth’s foundations, he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love, to be made whole and holy by his love,” Ephesians 1:4.

We have a lot of accidents in life, don’t we? We get in car accidents, we spill our drinks and we even call people by accident and blame it on a “butt dial.”

Here’s a truth in life that we need to drive deep within our hearts: There are a lot of accidents in life, but you are not one of them. God created you on purpose so that he could love you.

Ephesians 1:4 means you’re not an accident. God had you in mind long before your parents ever did. He was thinking about how he was going to love you and care for you. Imagine that! God created you so that you could be the focus of his love. What an honor!

You might feel like you’re an accident or even like your parents never really wanted you. The truth is there are a lot of accidental pregnancies and accidental parents. But there are no accidental children.

Do you know why? It’s because there are no accidents with God. He has always wanted you.

“I have carried you since you were born; I have taken care of you from your birth. Even when you are old, I will be the same. Even when your hair has turned gray, I will take care of you. I made you and will take care of you. I will carry you and save you,” Isaiah 46:3-4.

Today is not the day that you need to listen to your feelings. They often lie to us and tell us we’re unwanted and worthless.

Instead listen to what God said. He said you are an on-purpose person. You’ve been personally designed by him to be the focus of his love.
