In His Presence: The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does no dwell in temples made with hands; nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things (Acts 17:24-25).
Psalm 139:15-16 says: "My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; and in Your book were all written the days that were ordained for me." God has put all the parts of your life in order; He's got your whole life in His hands. This means you can stop trying to be somebody else and be satisfied with the unique person God made you to be. You are custom-made.
One of my shirts is custom-made, not off the rack like most shirts. It is made especially for me. And to make sure there is no question about it, my initials are embroidered on the cuff. When something is custom-made, it is fitted to your uniqueness. It was crafted with you in mind. Every man or woman reading this today has been custom-made by almighty God. Your days were ordained before any of them even came into being. Why is there chaos and calamity in the world today? Because we have a generation of people who want to live life their way and want God to adjust to their desires. But there is going to be discontinuity between you and God and a lack of purpose in your life unless you exist for Him.
God made the world and all things in it. He is the Lord of heaven and earth, and He doesn't need us. But He wants our service and He deserves it.
One Minute Please
God gives life and breath to all things at their appointed times. He has the world under control.
