SCRIPTURE: Psalm 139:14

The God who created you for Himself has never made any mistakes. There have been no failures or flaws in His plan and program for you. Genesis 1:1 says: "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." Since this is true, there can be no such thing as an accident. In this first verse of the Bible, the theory of naturalism is proven incorrect. Naturalism states that the supernatural does not exist, and that by chance, the world and its inhabitants evolved into what they are today.

There is no room for chance if you believe God is Creator and Sustainer. People who believe the world came about by chance are simply saying that nobody and nothing existed, and yet somehow that produced everything! It's important that we see the flaws in this worldview because many of us live by a philosophy of luck or chance, when actually God sovereignly allows things to happen in our lives for His purpose. And when we don't connect with His purpose, the components of our lives have no meaning.

How does this all relate to the topic of living a purposeful life? If we know that God purposefully created and sustains us, we know we are not a mistake. We are not the coming together of random forces in the universe; rather we are the direct result of God's power and work.

Psalms 139:1 and Psalms 139:13 says: "O Lord, You have searched me and known me . . . .You formed my inward parts." God formed you and determined your existence.

One Minute Please

The God of the Bible is perfect and makes no mistakes. He made you; therefore, you can't be a mistake!
