Created with purpose. Created by a loving God. Before there was anything at all, God was. He always has been and always will be. He is the one constant, the Source of all life everywhere..
In the act of creation He reveals something of His heart. In creating the world, He pours Himself into it some way, because it is continually dependent upon Him. But He doesn’t create a world that is manipulated and controlled by Him. Instead He gives people free will. He is Sovereign, All-powerful, Ever-present God, yet in an astonishing act of love and generosity, he wills that His creation will itself have free will.
in effect, His will is done, because part of the essence of His will is that we have free choice. He knows that this will lead to rebellion and ultimately to great suffering for Himself, Yet He chooses freedom over manipulation because he values relationship above laws and structures.
Created with purpose, relationship with a loving God. In that relationship if we trust Him, He has great plans for us, Jeremiah 29 Verse 11;
“’For I know the plans i have for you’—this is the lord’s declaration—’plans for your welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope’.”
Created with purpose and relationship, a relationship with Him where He will not let us down, 2 Corinthians 2 Verse 9:
“But He said to me, ‘My Grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness. Therefore i will most gladly boast all the more about my weakness, so that Christ power may reside in me”.
Created with purpose,and relationship, a relationship where He has the plans for the best for our lives, and He becomes our sufficiency to complete those plans. he also giv es us his promise Hebrews 13 verse 5;
‘I will never leave you or forsake you”.
Created with purpose and for relationship, where we have forgiveness, acceptance and assurance, from our God who wants to walk with us, as Our Lord and Our Friend.
