Ignatius, one of the early church fathers, said, “I come from God, I belong to God, I am destined for God.”
Romans 11:36 WE
All things come from God, through God, and return to God. Praise him for ever! Yes, it is so!
Recently I was blessed to hold my 5 months old great-nephew in my arms for the first time. It was such a marvelous privilege to look into his eyes and to recognize the angel around him and the destiny which is bigger than life, the life allotted to him here on earth and the revelation knowledge that he has come from God, belongs to God and is destined for God. My great- nephew’s spirit has come from heaven and is accustomed to the realm of God’s kingdom.
Therefore, I would like for all of us to stop for a moment and consider ~
- where we have come from?
- who we belong to?
- what is our destiny?
- when is it all unfolding?
Allow the Holy Spirit to show you things you have no apparent knowledge of and the necessity to have ears to hear what is being said…
I Belong to God
I belong to my beloved and he belongs to me; he pastures his flock among the lilies.
Know that the LORD Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture
for if we live, we live for the Lord, or if we die, we die for the Lord; therefore whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s.
I Am Destined For God
Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. 29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.
1 Peter 2:9
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
As you ponder above scriptures under the various headings, I trust you will be enlightened by and rejoice in the Lord!
IN HIM I LIVE, AND MOVE AND HAVE MY BEING!
