From: Sophereth at Kirjath Sepher
To: those created for His pleasure
So many times, through our lives, we think that we were created, called, to do this thing or that thing. Our lives seem so much simpler and straight forward when we know who we are. why we are.
We take comfort and guidance from this knowledge of who we are. why we are. We can settle in and be what we were created to be. We become more focused and we can work at doing this one thing well. We don’t have to be everything to everybody.
We think that we were created, called to be, mothers, fathers, or husbands, wives, business men or women, builders or bloggers, writers or poets…..but sometimes these earthly things don’t work out. What then? we search and search for that reason to be. for that reason to live.
When we no longer listen to all the voices: (even our own) go here. go there. do this. do that. be this. be that. when we find the one thing, then all the other things in our life find their natural place. then all the other things in our life fall into place. our life will be ordered FROM the one thing.
When we settle in to our Creator. when we make our decision to submit to our Creator and His will for us. when we can find the one thing that He created us for. we will find peace. the battle of the ages will be over for us.
ONE THING have I desired of the Lord. that ONE THING will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in His temple. Psalm 27:4.
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most high, shall abide in the shadow of the Almighty….Psalm 91.
Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast CREATED all things and FOR THY PLEASURE THEY ARE AND WERE CREATED. Revelation 4:11.
But thus saith the Lord that CREATED thee, O Jacob, and He that FORMED thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have CALLED thee by thy name; thou art mine…..even everyone that is CALLED by my name: for I have CREATED HIM FOR MY GLORY, I HAVE FORMED HIM; yea I HAVE MADE HIM. Isaiah 43:1,7.
This people have I FORMED FOR MYSELF; THEY SHALL SHEW FORTH MY PRAISE. Isaiah 43:21.
Remember these, O Jacob and Israel; for thou art my SERVANT (worshipper); I have FORMED thee; thou art my SERVANT (worshipper): O Israel, thou shalt not be forgotten of me. Isaiah 44:21
