I mean, I knew that some people would read it – but YOU, and YOU alone were the person I was praying that this would get in front of.
I know, right now you’re asking, “Did Nicole really rig this blog so that when I personally clicked on it that the blog would read just to me?”
The answer is a resounding YES!!!!!!
How did that happen? Well, let me explain. Because I am not that technologically advanced.
I was sitting in my bed last night, with my laptop open, asking God, “What do You want me to blog about God?’ I thought maybe some inspiration might come. Maybe an idea. Something vague or a story. And then BAM!
I thought of you.
You see, God was revealing to my heart that you really needed to be reminded of how much He loves YOU personally. I know that you still doubt that this is to YOU – but it is.
I know you have those days and times when you think that your significance in this world has diminished. That you don’t matter that much and that the world could spin on its axis just fine whether or not you were here. But YOU couldn’t be more wrong.
You see, God made YOU special. For a purpose – for an intended purpose… To talk to people that others won’t listen too. To listen to people that others won’t talk too. To reach your world in a special and unique way that no one else can.
The rest of the world – they don’t always appreciate that. The enemy – he HATES you. And YOU, you just think it’s trivial and just life.
YOU couldn’t be more wrong. It’s the enemy pulling the oldest trick in the book. Seriously, the Bible book!
Even Isaiah said,
But my work seems so useless! I have spent my strength for nothing and to no purpose. Yet I leave it all in the LORD’s hand; I will trust God for my reward.
— Is. 49:4 NLT-SE
We all hear it. As we hit the daily grind and especially when a challenge comes. Health issues, financial problems, family tension, kids that won’t listen and change when we know they need to. If even our own kids won’t even listen, then what kind of influence can have on the world?
We have the same kind of feelings even Isaiah had. And in case you didn’t notice, these feelings were so important God decided to add them to the Bible!
Just like Isaiah, God had purpose for YOU before He even began to form YOU. As He decided on your amazing skin color, and picked your eye color, and thought about how the nose He chose for you was perfect in His sight – He had thoughts, plans and big purpose for YOU.
And He went to work watching and encouraging you along the way so YOU didn’t forget – He loves YOU. He believes YOU can succeed. And He is on the sidelines helping it happen.
In fact the Bible says:
We know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
— Rom. 8:28 NLT-SE
He has Big Plans for You
God has so much purpose for your life that He talks about it all through His Word. By reading this today, He caused something to work for your good to encourage YOU along the way.
You are not just another person and your life is not unimportant. He loves YOU so much, He made me stay up and type this letter to YOU on His behalf.
YOU are special.
YOU are loved.
YOU have massive purpose.
YOU are instrumental.
YOU can do the purpose God has for YOU like no one else in all of time.
YOU are the apple of His eye.
He loves YOU.
P.S. – He said that He thinks of YOU when He paints the sunset and places spring flowers growing in your path. He knew it would make YOU smile.
P.P.S – I hope you got the message, because tomorrow night I’m hoping he let’s me sleep.
