So….you read the first Speak to It post and you’re thinking……so what’s that got to do with me??
God had a plan from the beginning to create mankind in His image. But He didn’t just begin to form man from the dust of the ground. Before the formation of the human man, the Word of God tells us that God said to Himself, “Let us make man in our image.”
Amazing! Your entire life was initiated by words. And those words were not your daddy saying to your mother, “What’s your sign?” The words were spoken in the beginning. You are here because of the word of God! You’re not an accident, an incident, a coincidence or a mistake. God spoke of you in the beginning of the world. As He told Jeremiah, “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you…” (Jeremiah 1:5) He knew you and then “ordained you” – He had a planned purpose for you before your father’s seed was received into your mother’s womb.
So don’t be afraid to embrace and pursue God’s plan for your life. God wasn’t surprised at your birth. He didn’t receive a memo about your arrival and search for something to do, thinking to Himself, “Well, I guess he’ll have to be an architect, that’s all the jobs I have left!” He had a plan for you, and then arranged your arrival here. And just like Jesus, who was born in a barn to a single mother/stepfather situation, even if the details of your birth—or your life, for that matter—were less than Huxtable-esque, God’s plans for your life are still transcendent to the earthly details of your life!
God’s ways are higher than ours (Isaiah 55:9). That means that His thoughts, plans, and provisions for us supersede the circumstances we’ve been subjected to because of the decisions and actions of other people! God spoke of your existence long before you arrived, and His plan for you was established from the beginning.
And even our mistakes were taken into account before we ever made them. That’s why the Bible the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world (Revelation 13:8). Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection were planned for because God was aware of our own flaws from the foundation of the world!
So if thoughts are set in motion by the spoken word, then our existence isn’t in vain. Psalms says that the tongue it is like the pen of a ready writer, meaning that when the thoughts I have are articulated, they become history in the making!
