What is that all about?
Well, I guess I'm just pondering the inevitability of life, of existence, and of God's placing me here on this earth, in this time, for His purpose. I had no say in the matter of my birth. I couldn't have made it one day earlier or later if I'd wanted to. I couldn't have chosen not to be born. I just exist because God chose to put me here. Kind of like my nose.
Many plans are in a man's mind, but it is the Lord's purpose for him that will stand. Proverbs 19: 21
Yet I'm thankful I exist, and when I rest in God's purposefulness in everything He does, I can see that there is purpose in my life, that God did have a reason when He made me. No matter how useless I feel, if I am seeking the Lord, He can truly use me as His instrument.
But for this very purpose have I let you live, that I might show you My power, and that My name may be declared throughout all the earth. Exodus 9: 16He let me (and my nose!) live so He might show us His power. Wow.
