“Made With a Purpose”

made with a purpose

By Dona Hake

Isaiah 64:8 (the Voice translation)

“Still, Eternal One, You are our Father.
We are just clay, and You are the potter.
We are the product of Your creative action, shaped

and formed into something of

Purpose defined:  the reason for which something exists or is done, made, used, etc.  Today I want you to think about the purpose and reason that you are alive. If you believe that there is indeed a Creator and you know that He formed you  within your mother’s womb then you well understand that His hands are loving and they work with purpose. Some days we might not feel all that great on the outside and things may be a bit stormy on the inside but know this…God’s loving hand is at work in your life.  He sees you as one of great value and worth!

Philippians 2:13 (AMP) 

” [Not in your own strength] for it is God Who is all the

while effectually at work in you

[energizing and creating in you the power and desire],

both to will and to work for His good pleasure

and satisfaction and delight.”

THE MESSAGE’s translation is wonderful and I love the way this reads.

“Be energetic in your life of salvation, reverent and

sensitive before God. That energy is God’s energy,

an energy deep within you, God himself willing and

working at what will give him the most pleasure.”

Many times in life we can feel His loving hand molding us.   Sometimes it feels like we are being stretched.  Let us never resist the work of His hand.  His hand is at work in our life with a purpose and that purpose is that we bring great pleasure to Him!  Let us keep watch over our hearts that we remain humble and workable that His hand may continue to work!
