In Ephesians 2:4 -10, Paul teaches the people of the Ephesian church (and us) You are forgiven, free, gifted, valuable, blessed, you have a hope, and a purpose!

It doesn’t matter what lies we’ve been spoon fed throughout our lives, telling us we are worthless, hopeless, useless, pointless. Ephesians 2:10 tells us that we are God’s masterpieces (NLT). We are created by our God expressly for His purpose, for His enjoyment, for His pre-planned reasons. We are created for His benefit. Notice two very significant words here. We are created BY and FOR. We are not created haphazardly “just because.” We are not casual mistakes.

Don’t allow Satan or anyone else to dissuade you from the Lord’s work by saying you have no purpose or meaning. If you are still alive, breathing and walking, then God is still has a special use and job for you. How exciting!

The Bible says that these good things we are supposed to do were planned out for us to do a long time ago, thousands of years before we were even born. Would God have given that much thought, consideration and planning to someone for whom He didn’t have much purpose? Absolutely not. He has a purpose and a plan for you. Ask Him what it is, then run toward it and fulfil it!
