There is no doubt about it. When we read our Bibles, we can see that God had a plan when he made human beings. Noah was made to build the ark. Moses was created to lead God’s people out of Egypt. Mary was supposed to be Jesus’ mother. John the Baptist was meant to be the prophet that ushered in Jesus. Jesus was meant as our saving grace.
Sometimes it can feel like the people in the Bible were great and courageous heroes, too far removed from the struggles that we face each day. Our life can seem harder, because we forget that our Bible heroes were people just like us. They had to fight off being sick, broken hearts, and bad days. They all worked hard at the calling God had placed on their lives, no matter how hard it got. We can do the same!
God has a calling on your life, little one. It is important and will take courage and strength, just like it did for the Bible heroes we love to read about. But with Jesus on your side, you can do it, no matter how hard it may seem some days!
“I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13
What do you feel like God has called you to do with your life?
