God's Words For US
by Cecelia Lester
Him, being delivered by the determined purpose and foreknowledge of God, you have taken by lawless hands, have crucified and put to death, whom God raised up, having loosed the pain of death for it was not possible that He should be held by it. Acts 2:23-24 (NKJV)
Jesus’ coming to earth, healing the ill, even His death—the horrible death of crucifixion, were all in God’s purpose and plan.
God has a purpose and a plan for each of His children. I see examples all around me of people fulfilling God’s purpose for their lives. My best friend has worked with children for about 50 years. Another friend has served her church as Children’s Ministries director for ten years straight. The Children’s Ministries director’s job is a HUGE responsibility.
I have wondered for quite some time what God’s purpose is for the rest of my life? I want to be used by God in any way He chooses.
Have you been through a similar time of searching?
