God Made You And You Belong To Him

And Mary said: "My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior." Luke 1:46-47 (NIV)

"If you're going to trust somebody with your life, who better to trust than your Maker?"

When it comes to planning, many Christians act like atheists. They realized Jesus saved them, but they don't really trust him. They think they can plan their life any way they want to. But the reality is everyone is created by God, and he made each person for a unique purpose. He has a specific destiny for everyone. 

God had a plan for Mary. He chose her and he created her to become the mother of the Son of God. And what was Mary's response? She didn't say, "I've got my own plans for my life. I'm too busy. I have to do what's best for me." No, she realized God had a purpose for her life and she was willing to do whatever he wanted.

Her response was a song of praise, "My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior" (Luke 1:46-47 NIV). Mary recognized that God was her Lord and Savior and she was eager to do his will. She trusted him with her life even though she knew no one would believe her when she told them what the angel said.

Do you trust that God has made you for a specific destiny? The Bible says, "Know that the Lord is God. He made us, and we belong to him; we are his people" (Psalm 100:3 NCV).

You didn't make yourself. God made you. He created you and designed you and you belong to him. God's destiny for your life is better than any plan you'll ever come up with. So if you're going to trust somebody with your life, who better to trust than your Maker, the one who created you for a purpose?
