I Was Created For…. @SSPreacherman

Have you ever spent time in prayer wondering about why you were created? A few years ago, I (Sonya) was inspired to do just that during a revival service. This is what I came up with:

I​ ​was​ ​created​ ​to ​inhale​​ ​His​ ​Holy​ ​breath. I​ ​was ​​created ​​to ​leave​ ​my​ ​land ​and​ ​begin​ ​a​ ​journey ​to​ ​a​ ​new​ ​land​ ​full​ ​of​ hope​ ​​and​ promise.​ ​I​ ​was​ ​created​ ​to​ ​serve​ ​the​ High​ ​Priest​ and​ ​learn​​ His​​ ​laws​ ​and​ ​decrees. I​ was​​ ​created​ ​to​ trust​​ in​​ the​ light​​ when​​ ​life’s​ ​path​ is​​ ​dark​ ​and​ ​all ​I​ ​can ​see ​​is​ ​the ​​pillar​ ​of​ fire.​ ​I ​was​ ​created​ to​ ​​let​ His​ voice​ ​​speak​ ​so​ ​all​ ​men ​ can​ ​be ​drawn​ ​to​ ​Him. ​​I​ ​was​ ​created​ ​to​ ​be​ ​brave​ ​and​ ​courageous​ — ​to​ seize​ ​the ​Promised​​ ​Land​ ​to which He​ ​has​ ​brought​ ​me. ​​I​ ​was​ ​created ​to​ ​have​ ​His​ ​law ​written​ ​on​ ​​my​ heart.​ ​I ​was ​created​ ​to​ ​​believe​ His​ ​prophecy. ​​I ​was​ ​created ​to be​ ​​redeemed​ ​by​ ​His ​ blood.​ ​I ​​was ​ ​created ​​to ​​be ​a ​part​ ​of​ ​His ​work,​ ​to​ ​rebuild​ broken​ ​lives​​ ​and​ wounded​​ hearts.​ I ​was​ ​ created​ ​to​ sing​ ​His​ praises.​ ​​I ​was​ created​ ​​to​ ​walk​ with​ ​​Him ​​through​ ​all​ ​seasons​ ​of​ ​life. I​ ​was​ created​ ​to​ seek​ ​His​ wisdom.​ I​ was​ ​​created to​​ ​seek​ after​​ Him.​ I​ ​was​ ​created​ to​ allow​ ​Him​ to​ ​be the​ ​lover ​of​ ​my​ ​soul. ​I​ ​was​ ​created​ ​to seek​ ​His​ peace​​ ​and​ ​to​ ​offer​ it​ ​​to others.​ I​ ​was ​created​​ to​ ​see​ ​Him ​in​ ​the​ ​fiery​ ​furnaces​ ​of ​ ​life​ ​–​ to​ ​ be​ ​willing​ ​to remain in the fire and ​be refined.​ I​ ​was​ ​created ​to ​see​ ​Him as​ ​an​ ​open​ ​door — my ​escape​ from​ ​sin. I​ ​was​ ​created​ ​to​ ​believe that ​He​ ​is ​faithful​ ​in ​all​ things​​ ​at​ ​all​ times.​ I​ ​was​ ​created​ ​to​ ​join Him​ in​ ​​the ​missionary​ ​call. I​ ​was created​​ ​to​ ​embrace​ ​the​ ​Holy​ Spirit’s​ ​​power. I​ was​ ​created​ ​to​ ​be​ cradled​ ​in​ ​His​ ​arms.​ ​I ​was​ ​created​ ​to​ ​walk in​​ ​His promise​ of peace.​ I​ ​was​ ​created​ ​to​ ​respond​ ​to​ ​the​ ​call​ ​for​ ​revival.

I​ was​ ​created​ to​ ​soar ​when​ my​ ​journey​ causes​ ​me​ ​to​ ​be​ weak.​​ ​I​ ​was​ created​ ​to ​worship​ ​Messiah. ​I​ ​was​ ​created​ ​for​ the​ fire​​ ​from​ ​Heaven​ ​to​ change​​ me.​ I​​ was​ ​created​ ​to ​​be seen​ ​by​ ​the​ ​Father’s​ eyes​ ​of​ mercy​​ ​and​ ​grace. I​ was​ ​created to​​ ​be​ ​bathed​ ​in​ ​love,​ ​to​ stand​​ in​ ​the​​ ​shadow​ ​of​ ​the​ ​cross,​ ​so​ that I​​ ​could​ ​bend​ my​​ knees​ before​ the​ throne​​ ​of​ ​grace​ and​ ​ ​forgiveness. I​ was​ ​created​​ ​to have​ ​a​ servant’s​ ​heart.​ I​ was​ ​created​ to​​ ​be​ ​a​ worker​​ not​ ​ashamed​ ​of​ ​the​ Gospel​​ ​of​ Christ.​ I was​ ​created​ ​to​ trust​​ the​ Master’s​ ​ ​heart when​​ ​I​ did​ not​ ​understand​ ​the​ ​movement​ ​of​ ​his hands.​ I​ ​was​ ​created​ ​to​ ​hear​ the​​ Bridegroom​ ​say, “Come,​ ​my​​ ​bride.​ ​It​ ​is​ time​​ for​ the​ ​​wedding feast.”​ I ​was​ ​created​ ​for​ ​everlasting ​praise​ ​and​ ​worship​ ​of​ ​my​ King. I was created for eternity.
