Summary: You were created to play your role. God preset the conditions for you to be you, so you could carry out the exact good works He prepared beforehand for you to do.
Ephesians 2:10 tells us “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
Have you seen altered photos that combine two animals? Alligator-Eagle. Cat-Shark. Cheeta-Wasp. Someone altered and melded two animals into one, yet these modified animals are nowhere to be found in creation.
We all have wished we could adapt or change our physical bodies. If I were the creator, I would have made Josh Denhart 3 inches taller, naturally muscular and certainly not red-haired. If given the chance, you might make some structural changes to yourself too, right? But just as there is not a purpose for an Alligator-Eagle, there is no purpose in creation for a 6’2”, naturally muscular, blonde-haired Josh. God is a master builder and we are a one-of-a-kind work of art for a reason. Apparently, God needed a 5’11”, slighter-built, red-headed Josh. So, that’s what He made.
You were created to play your role. God preset the conditions for you to be you, so you could carry out the exact good works He prepared beforehand for you to do. He built your very DNA to pull off His will. Own that today. Can you pause and celebrate how you have been created?
