Created for???

If only we could be as diligent as a mother hen hatching her eggs. She sits day in and day out with extreme patience. She weathers storms and opposition. She’s not bothered with other animals and protects her eggs with determination. She is focused and immovable. That is how we should be… immovable, doing what God created us to do!  “…God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable” (Romans 11:29). This means they are set in stone. So if we find ourselves doing something besides what He created us to do, we find ourselves out of the will of God and discontented. One of the only constants in this earthly life is change. The storms of life come and go. Feelings and circumstances change. But great peace and contentment are found in knowing Him and walking steadfastly in His will- immovable. Wake up every day and ask, “God, how can I be used by You today, regardless of my situation?”

Read: 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; John 14:26-27
