So what does it look like to actually live life according to God’s design for you?

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” – Jeremiah 1:5

We quote the popular Bible scripture in Jeremiah 1:5, but do we really understand what it means?

What it simply means is that, before “YOU were formed in your mother’s womb, God knew you and set you apart. God appointed you as a

(Fill in the space according to what God has called you) to the nations.

This speaks to the intentionality God has about each and every one of us and the creation story speaks to how purposeful He is as our God.

If you pay attention to the creation story, which we have studied in a Bible Study in WONDIVA, you will see that the creation story follows a pattern of order, God is intentional about how He creates each creation, up until man. In fact, we see that Man came after there was a garden to tend to and expand it.

“The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.”

Genesis 2:15

We see that there is an order God’s designing and executing of His work on the earth, which draws our attention to the most important thing i want us to pay attention to, which is, God already had the work waiting for you on earth that he created for you.

He designed you, saw into your future and configured the things that you can control and you really need like your mind, your spirit, your body, these are the things that you can put into place that will bring about the resources needed to build out the plan and purposes according to God’s pattern.

If you follow closely the journey of Jesus from cradle to grave, you will see that from the book of Isaiah, we see that his birth and coming has been announced and started getting prepared years even before Mary and Joseph was born. God had designed what Jesus was to come on earth to accomplish and that informed the configuration of Jesus building, being the first Human to be on earth with the Holy Spirit living on the inside of Him 24/7because a new kind of work to be accomplished, meant a new method and Jesus was indeed the way, still is the way, the truth and the life.

(John 14:16)

I am taking time out to explain this to you in details, because you might be someone reading, who have never really seen the intentionality of how you were built and why you are here, the lack of understanding of how you were built and why you are here is what makes most people chase after other people’s dreams and this subject is being treated, because of what we already established in episode one, which is many are out of the will and alignment of God and are useless in fulfilling His purposes, even if they are crying unto Him week in week out, because they haven’t been taught the art of understanding, being confident and walking in their original design.

Why is that? You may ask, it is because the average model, caregiver, parent, teacher, mentor haven’t been trained to nurture people who look up to them in their own right, identity and path. Some of these people instead, for some unknowingly make people mold their lives inside of their own model and this is a different conversation entirely that we can have in a different episode, but the summary of the point i am trying to make here is many have been taught and shown to live in other people’s shadow than to learn about theirs and because it feels scary to start trying to discover your own path, when you are unknown and untested, the easier route people follow is to just pick and mimic things that seems to be working and that doesn’t show any glimpse of frailty and uncertainty and this is how many miss the design that God has long created and designed before you were formed in your mother’s womb.

In this next episode,

You will learn “HOW” to start living from a place of Design.

Don’t miss it.
