The Purpose Driven Life Review – Day 2

Topic: YOU ARE NOT AN ACCIDENT
Scriptural Reference: Isaiah 44:2-4

Chapter one introduced us to an eye-opening knowledge about our purpose and how it starts with God!! We were able to understand that it’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for and that we can only discover our identity and purpose through a relationship with God!!

are not an accident!!
The author took us through a rich explanation of the reason behind our existence. He said: Your birth was no mistake or mishap and your life is no fluke of nature, Long before you were conceived by your parents, you were conceived in the mind of God.

Wow!! Powerful words that remind us that God took perfectly organized steps in creating man as seen in the first few chapters of the book of Genesis.

Our existence was not a random occurrence or by chance. We were made by him and for him.

The God of details
The writer further carried us through a glimpse of how God works, “God prescribed every single detail of our bodies” It’s soothing to be reminded that God left no detail to chance, He planned it all for a purpose.

You are not a mistake, Our God is a detailed God, He is perfect and so are his ways. He is no gambler, He is the master planner!! ๐Ÿ‘

What other perfect Relatable examples other than our own bodies, our race, colour, individual physical attributes do you need to prove that we were all designed by God?

You don’t have to be a doctor to appreciate the handiwork of his perfect intricate design of the human body, the networking of cells, tissues, organs and systems that are so complex but yet so perfect!! All a handy work of God. He only knows how the bones of a baby in the womb are been formed…

Any deviation from what he created in your results in malformations and malfunctioning. Same applies to our purpose, any deviation from God’s purpose is not our purpose!!

God’s Unending Love
The writer explained God’s motive for creating us which is love๐Ÿ’ž.
You were created as a special object of God’s love. “There is perfect love in the fellowship of the Trinity, so God didn’t need to create you, He wasn’t lonely, we were made as an expression of his love, for God is love”.

God is not haphazard, we were planned with great precision, God formed the earth to be inhabited not empty, we were made for a purpose!!

You are not a mistake. DHL didn’t drop you off at your doorstep, you were born for a purpose

Understanding the basis of our existence will only prove to us that we were created for a reason and that reason is our Purpose.

Accepting we are not mistakes creates a fertile ground on which our purpose will thrive!!

Critical Thinking
Many people have been able to build their self-esteem which gives them the conviction that they are not accidents without understanding why.

If you ask an average man out there, he will tell you he is not an accident.

But In this part of the world, few people think they are accidents(sadly, the number is progressing rapidly) and unfortunately most of them are suicidal.

But here is the issue: if you don’t know your purpose or you are not on the path of discovering it then you are not different from someone who thinks he/she is an accident or mistake.

Let’s look at it this way: It’s like a vicious cycle, your existence determines your purpose (the purpose of our existence) and your purpose proves your existence. (When someone ceases to exist, his purpose dies too).

This takes us back to chapter one ( It all starts with God) and with God, there is no mediocrity, we discover our purpose only when we make God the reference points in our lives

In Conclusion
If there was no God, we would all be accidents, but there is a God who is the possessor of heaven and earth, who made us. Therefore we are no accidents, we were created for a reason and that reason is our purpose and we can only find that purpose in God!!

Summary
๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸปGod never does anything accidentally.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸปGod never makes mistakes.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸปGod has a reason for everything he creates; man, plants and animals. There is a reason he dint crest you like an animal. For if he did no one can question him but bcoz of the purpose he has at heart he created you as You.

Scientific knowledge about the universe gives us better insights on how it is uniquely suited for our existence, custom made with exact specifications to make human life possible. (God had us in mind before he made the universe๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜)

God made us for a reason, we are no accidents, no matter the circumstances surrounding your birth !!!
He Is An Intentional God

Nugget
๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป If you are one inch more or less than who you are, then you will not fit in for God’s purpose for you.
