Hear God’s Word for you: "All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, O God, how vast is the sum of them." - Psalm 139:16-17
God has written your story and every single one of your days was ordained by Him for His glory. Yes, even the painful moments. The moments when we want to say "why God?" even those were allowed and ultimately written into the story of your life.
If you are in Christ, you have experienced His transforming power and He wants you to use your story to bring Him glory. This morning during my prayer time, He gave me this acronym as a way to remember why my story matters. Your story is...
-Spirit filled and led once you have given your life to Jesus! Even the messy parts can be used for His glory.
-Transforming in the lives of other who have shared in similar struggles. God wants to use your story as a tool in helping others realize there need for Him.
-Ordained by God. He wrote every detail. Ultimately it's not your story- it's His!
-Real and authentic. It may be painful or embarrassing to you, but others can relate because it's REAL. People are tired of seeing this "fake" picture. It's our responsibility as believers to allow others in to see the beauty of God taking a real person with real struggles and redeeming them for His glory!
-Yours. Your story is no one else's. You have endured specific things for specific reasons and your story is not an accident.
My prayer is that God uses these short devotionals to encourage and challenge you.
