A person’s life becomes pointless when he or she contributes nothing to the world. Don’t let that describe YOUR life! God didn’t bring you into the world so you would live a pointless and inconse quential life! He has a purpose for your life. He wants to use you! He wants you to be a significant part of His plan!

MY PRAYER FOR TODAY

Lord, I am so glad that You knew me and called me even before I was conceived in my mother’s womb. According to Your Word, I am no mistake; therefore, I ask You to help me start looking at my life with respect, esteem, and honor. You called me, and You have an awesome plan for my life. I ask You to help me uncover that plan so I can get started on the road of obe dience toward the fulfillment of what You brought me into this world to do!

I pray this in Jesus’ name!

MY CONFESSION FOR TODAY

I boldly declare that I am no accident and no mistake! God knew me before the earth was created; He called me before I was formed in my mother’s womb; and He has long awaited my arrival on planet earth! God has a plan for me! I am purposeful; I am respectful of myself; and I walk in a way that honors the One who called and anointed me to be enlisted in His service!

I declare this by faith in Jesus’ name!

QUESTIONS FOR YOU TO CONSIDER 

  1. Have you ever been tempted to think that your life was pointless and inconse quential? What happens in your life most often that triggers these negative emo tions? 
  2. Can you think of a time when you were supernaturally illuminated to the call of God on your life? When that happened, what did you understand was the chief purpose that God had for you in this lifetime? 
  3. If you have been struggling with feelings of purposelessness or of inferiority toward other people, what are you going to do to stop these negative emotions from affecting you in an adverse way?
