Proverbs 16:4 KJV

Going a little deep here. This passage, in the original text, means God made everything for His purpose and design. Everything that exists exists for the purposes of God and the unfolding of His plan. Today we tend to read it, and preach it, as everything is created for it’s independent purpose. The subtle difference is huge. It is the foundation difference between a predestined verses a freewill understanding of scripture. ‬ Relax I’m not going there. Suffice it to say that God allows us to live in alignment with His purpose for our creation or not to. We obey or disobey and in so doing we live out how He made us for Himself or not. As we live out our purpose by His creative design we find joy, peace, love and all the good things He intends for His children. If we don’t then we find out what awaits us in the day of evil. I assure you it’s not pretty. As we wrestle daily to live His goal and will for our story He stands ready to empower us in the battle. When we live contrary to how we were designed, we discover we are in a state of internal turmoil and chaos. Sometimes it’s external as well. Today don’t resist God’s plan for your story but join Him in the beauty of what He has planed for you. #BeTheEdge
