Take a moment to marvel at the creativity of God’s creation. The Bible speaks of multiple ways that God has created life – Calling the plants and and animals into being (Genesis 1:11-25); Forming Adam out of dust (Genesis 2:7); Fashioning Eve out of Adam’s rib (Genesis 2:21-22); Birth of Jesus from a virgin, the Word becoming flesh (John 1:13).
Your individual story of creation is no less miraculous. The gift of life is never an accident. Even before we existed as an embryo, God knew you and already had a plan and purpose for you. (Jeremiah 1:5).
You are a unique creation. There is no one like you that has come before, and no one like you that will come after. You were made not with carelessness but with wonder and set apart from all others by God. (Psalm 139)
If you believe this is your origin story, your identity must be found in conforming to what God created you to be.
WHAT WILL YOU DO
If you can accept that God knows you better than you know yourself, would you ask God to reveal enough of this knowledge to you to guide your steps? Would you:
Empirically, we can only ever speak from our personal experience of God. Evidentially, what we say about our experience can only be supported by the transformation of our lives. Evangelism then flows from our reflection of God’s character.
“Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.” – Psalm 139:16 (ESV)
