~Arise and take your place~

2 Chronicles 7:14-16
"if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayer that is made in this place. For now I have chosen and consecrated this house that my name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will be there for all time."
We are all here for a reason but some of us are confused of what that reason might be, many believe that it's all about being reckless in your life whether it be by your words or your actions but if life was really about that..then it wouldn't be much of a life now would it? because life would have no purpose..there would be nothing worth fighting for and nothing worth keeping because everything in life would become so corrupt and without any true value! Without purpose there would be no reason for this life and without God's calling over our lives we wouldn't have the passion that it takes for us to do what he has called us to do according to his purpose  that he has placed over our lives!
I'm so glad that God saw the potential in us before we were even born..he even knew what we would be purposed to do with our lives!
I'm so greatful to him for giving each of us a destiny and a calling to be accomplished for his glory..What a wonderful opportunity to give it all back to him than to do his works! What a mighty God we serve that he would have a special purpose meant for each of us! We are his sons and daughters..And he knows us by name!!
Ephesians 1:5-12
"he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.
11 In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will, so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory."
