Ephesians 2:10

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

I have been thinking over the past few months about God's unique purpose for my life. These are difficult and changing times and I know that the new normal in our world is going to be very different when everything is said and done. Knowing this, it has caused me to think about how I can effectively serve the Lord through my life and ministry in what is becoming our new normal. The Apostle Paul states that God has a specific purpose for each of us as we live out the years of our life. Those years may be short or long, but ultimately they are to be lived with a focus on God’s purposes for us.

It is amazing that God is in the process of making us His workmanship or masterpiece. We are uniquely made for God’s purposes. We are a unique and one of a kind masterpiece. There are no duplicates or later editions. With this understanding, God wants to specifically use us to do the good works He has designed for each of us to accomplish in our lifetime. The difficult days that we are facing are not a surprise to God. In the midst of what is going on around us, God is fulfilling His purpose and design for our lives and ministry. He has certain things that He wants us to accomplish. Let us focus today on what God desires to do in and through us. As we go through each day, we should be looking for those opportunities that God is giving us to serve Him.

What is God leading you to do today?  How has God designed you to serve Him in today’s world?  What steps do you need to take today to fulfill His purposes for you?
