Fresh Hope – 27th June 2020

Did you know that you weren’t an accident? 

Did you know that you were born on purpose and for a purpose?

You may not have been planned by your earthly parents, but you were certainly planned by God. My parents were told that they wouldn’t be able to have children. I came along six years later. A miracle. God obviously wanted me born. I have a purpose to fulfil. AND so do YOU. 

God has had His hand on your life every day up until now…you may never have stopped to think about that. You may never have had any regard for God until today. He’s not fazed by that. He’s watched over you, protected you and He’s been with you, even when you didn’t realise it. 

You are not here today, reading this by accident. It’s part of God’s plan for your life. Your life may have been one of struggle and strife, but you made it! It doesn’t matter how much you messed up, or how those bad circumstances have affected you, because God has a beautiful plan for your future if you allow Him in. He’s a gentleman. He doesn’t force His way into anyone’s life. He waits to be invited. 

You can buy a new car, or a new kitchen appliance and ignore the manufacturer’s instructions. It will soon stop working, or even blow up. That’s like us, when we ignore our Maker’s instructions for our lives, we can get broken or lost or in a mess. 

Today, stop and thank God that He has been with you (even though you may not have known).

– Thank Him that He has a plan for your life (even though you may not yet know what it is).

-Ask Him to help you live your best life yet.

 -Invite Him in to be the Leader and Lord.

 -Ask for forgiveness for your past mistakes and mess ups. 

-Ask Him to fill you with His Holy Spirit. 

He has some great things in store for you. You were born ON PURPOSE.
