Do you know that your design is actually perfect for your purpose? This means that God was intentional in the way that He knit you together. Potential is determined by design. Your potential is intricately woven into your design and your design is crafted according to your PURPOSE.
You come preprogrammed with all the gifts, talents, aptitudes and abilities necessary to engage your life purpose.
As a believer, you have something extra. You are designed to flow with a certain anointing or divine enablement that comes from heaven.
Romans 11:36 says “of Him (design) and to Him (purpose) and through Him (anointing) are all things.”
Because God provides for His purposes, the most challenging or frustrating places of our lives often involve the mistakes we made. We’ve all done it. A wrong turn, delay, an unwise choice. But God factors in grace for these areas we’ve been blind to or stumbled over.
He told Abraham to leave his hometown—alone—but instead Abraham left with Lot and his entire family and entourage. Eventually the herdsmen of Lot and the herdsmen of Abraham were in strife and it caused problems for Abraham.
Strife comes with the stuff we added that God didn’t give us…look at Ishmael. Yet, Abraham is our founding father of faith who still succeeded and was called the friend of God! The beauty of God’s ways is that He makes ALL things work together for the good of...whom? “…them that love God, who are called ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE.” (Romans 8:28)
There is no blanket promise in the Bible that all things work together for everyone…but there is a promise of everything working out for those who are seeking to please the Lord and are conscientious about fulfilling His purpose.
Keep at it. You were designed to succeed! You will finish the work, the purpose of your life, and hear “well done.”
This is a life of destiny by design, a design that is perfect and anointed for your unique call. Lance
