Never believe that lie from Satan that your life is meaningless or that your circumstances won’t change. God sent His Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for you and me. That is how much He loves you.
However, in order for Him to save you, you have to make a conscious, intelligent, personal decision to repent, believe and call upon His name. He loves you with an everlasting love “for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
You are God’s treasure, joy and His prize and He died on the cross that you and I might live. He has known you since the foundations of the earth were established and He has plans for your life: “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
Although society might want to dehumanize you, you should not fear. But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world. (1 John 4:4) The Lord also says:
But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear Him who, after He has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I say to you, fear Him! “Are not five sparrows sold for two copper coins? And not one of them is forgotten before God. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows. (Luke 12:5-7 NKJV)
What ever Happened in Your Past–You are Not an Accident!
You are not a result of sex or of your parents but of sovereignty, predestination and purpose. Before you were a seed in your father’s loins, you were a seed in heart of God. Before you were formed in your mother’s womb; you were formed in the mind of God. The sex that brought you into the world may have been illegitimate, but you are not.
You shouldn’t ever say that you are an accident. Don’t ever feel inferior because of the way you entered this world. Your arrival on planet earth was not an accident; it was planned by God. Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations. (Jeremiah 1:5) David wrote:
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.” (Psalms 139:13-16)
When humans engage in sexual intercourse, over 200 million microscopic sperms are released from the male to begin a critical journey lasting between four and six minutes until the potential winners in the race for human life arrive at their goal—the woman’s egg, the ova. Out of the thousand or so potential winners of the race, the Creator has designed us so that only one single sperm will be permitted to penetrate the ova to produce a new baby.
The sperms are produced at a rate of approximately sixteen every second, and are produced and stored outside the male torso due to the need to keep the sperm production operating at 96 degrees Fahrenheit, two degrees cooler than the normal body temperature of 98.6. The testicles respond to variations in body and atmospheric temperature by being drawn closer to the torso when it is cool and descending away from the torso when it too hot to maintain the correct temperature.
Once the one successful sperm penetrates the ova, the DNA in the sperm combines instantly with the DNA of the ova. The combined sperm and ova form the zygote, the first new cell of the future baby, which represents the total genetic combination of man and woman or husband and wife is the miracle of a new human life.
This remarkable new cell begins instantaneously to divide and grow until a new human being with trillions of cells is born nine months later. The zygote cell will descend through the fallopian tube until it reaches the womb. The zygote cell attaches itself to the wall of the mother’s uterus and begins its nine-month growth cycle, living within a marvelous protective fluid known as the amnion liquid, which forms within a special sac in the womb that protects the growing baby from blows or accidents.
That is why you are so special. You are important; you are a unique individual with a unique destiny to discover. You are not an accident, you are not the result of sex or of people-they were just the means to get you here. Your real sense comes from knowing that God knew you before you entered your mother’s womb, and your days were written for you; waiting for you to live them.
You were born for a purpose and a predestined plan from God, and no matter how old you are, God is able to take the good and the bad and work it into something beautiful. Romans 8:28 says “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”
The Bible also says that “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.” (2 Corinthians 8:9 NKJV) It cost Jesus everything He had to buy you and me back to Himself. He did not give up His eternal power when He became human, but He set aside His glory and His rights and by so doing He made us rich because we received eternal life.
Perhaps you have never seen yourself as important. You have low-self esteem and a poor self-image. You may have had a life of pain and disappointment: a deprived and unhappy childhood, a marriage that ended in divorce, or a career that ended prematurely and never materialized, a sexual or emotional abuse, or years wasted in immorality, drugs, and alcohol.
The past and future both portray the same message from the enemy: you are a failure! You are a not a failure to Jesus Christ. Why? Because He loved you so much that He gave up everything to redeem you for Himself. Confess these words from the Apostle Paul: “Jesus loved me and gave Himself for me.”(Galatians 2:20).” You are so precious and beautiful! You cost Jesus all that He had and even if you were the only one on this planet He would have died for you, and you are His forever, nothing or no one will ever pluck you out of His hands!
Jesus Christ will reveal Himself to you because He longs to commune with you. He knows your hurts and disappointments and He longs for you to come and sit at His feet and dine with Him. If you long for this kind of intimacy with God as your Father, He is more desirous of that intimate relationship with you than you are.
Once you experience His presence, nothing on this earth will ever satisfy you. I am writing this through personal experience, you can’t even find the right words in English that can describe the splendor that awaits you in the Most Holy place. Every one of us who wants a deeper communion with the Lord will have one. But the question is: Are you willing to wait for Him to commune with you?
He is waiting to fellowship with you if you are hungry and thirsty enough. The Lord promises that He who believes in Me (who cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me) as the Scripture has said, from his innermost being shall flow continuously springs and rivers of living water. (John 7:38 AMP) If at all you have don’t know the Lord as a real Father. No human being in your life will ever be a real father to you. But first you must know Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, so that you can receive the gift of eternal life. The Bible says:
He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. (John 1:11-13 NKJV)
After that I would advise you to start with a simple act of quietly waiting in His presence. After prayerfully reading and meditating on His Word, the Lord will make His presence known and He will reveal Himself to you the way He sees fit. There is no formula for His presence. “The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” (John 3:8)
