Scripture: Psalm 33:15, NKJV
“He fashions their hearts individually; He considers all their works.” (Psalm 33:15, NKJV)
Incredible! Each of us has been specifically designed by God for his purpose and use.
Christians are told this in Scripture: “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10, NKJV).
Discovering God’s plan and purpose is the most fulfilling part of life one can imagine. God has redeemed us for his purposes, “who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works” (Titus 2:14, NKJV).
God considers all of our works. After all, he designed us, and he is interested in seeing whether his purposes are being served. Our redeemed talents, gifts, and desires call us into the avenues of service he has prepared for us.
God has given you a heart to do something for him. You have been designed for it. In all probability, he has or will open doors of opportunity for you to use your God-given talents, gifts, and desires to serve him. I encourage you to take advantage of these opportunities when they come your way.
“‘But now be strong, Zerubbabel,’ declares the Lord. ‘Be strong, Joshua son of Jozadak, the high priest. Be strong, all you people of the land,’ declares the Lord, ‘and work. For I am with you,’ declares the Lord Almighty” (Haggai 2:4, NIV).
This is also what God is telling us today. Be strong. Be busy doing the King’s business, for he is with us in all that we do.
As you do the King’s business, be encouraged. The works of God’s people performed in the power of the Holy Spirit will echo into eternity.
“Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.’”
“Yes,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them” (Revelation 14:13, NKJV).
Today, ask yourself:
Am I living in the power of the Holy Spirit, so my life can truly echo into eternity?
