Your "Shape" Reveals Your Purpose
Jeremiah 1:5 (MSG) “Before I shaped you in your mother’s womb, I knew all about you. Before you saw the light of day, I had holy plans for you.”
God created you for a purpose. That’s why you are the way you are. He’s shaped you. He’s made you unique to fulfill a unique purpose. He wants to include you in his plan.
Isaiah 43:7 (NIV) “Bring me all the people who are mine, whom I made for my glory, [You were made for God’s glory. God made you to give glory to himself.] those I formed and created.”
Being who God made you to be is an act of worship. It actually brings glory to God. He looks at you and when you use the spiritual gifts, heart, ability, personality and experiences God gave you, God is happy. It brings pleasure to God.
How does you being you bring glory to God? When anything that’s created fulfills the purpose for which it was created, it brings glory to the Creator.
The way God shaped you reveals how he wants to use you.
No matter what, you can rest in the truth that God is working in your life and that he shaped you to succeed. He shaped you in advance for those plans. God’s plans for your life didn’t start the moment you were born. Those plans started before your birth, when the Bible says God shaped you in your mother’s womb.
How do you discover the unique way God made you? I hope that you’ll stick around for this series we are doing right now on Sundays called Shaped to Serve. Over the next several weeks, our goal is to help you discover how God has shaped you for a purpose.
