God, indeed, sticthed us together in our mothers’ wombs but that is not the end of the story. God is calling us to be daily stiched with God’s grace.
The first step is to surrender to God’s will. Because, as Martin Luther states it: “God creates out of nothing. Therefore, until a man is nothing, God can make nothing out of him”. ~Martin Luther
God asks if we are available to be formed, stiched with his grace. God’s plans for us are good. He wants to mold us into something far better we could become alone. Stiching into the being God created us to be is a life-long process. We need to state our willingness daily and, even though, we can’t always see the end project we can always delight in the process of being stiched with God’s grace. Because it is done with loving hands of our Heavenly Father. God will personally stich, mold, shape and transform us as long as we let him.
“O LORD, you are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.” (Jeremiah 64:8, NIV)
God knows what he wants to do with your life. It is up to you let God stitch you into your full potential. Why would you want anything less than God has prepared for you? D.L.Moody urges us, “Let God have your life; He can do more with it than you can”.
We are not to strech beyond the boundary lines that God has stiched specifically for us. Rick Warren’s tweet says the very same thing this way: “Do what God CALLS u to do with your life & you’ll succeed. Do what u think will prove your worth & you’ll fail miserably”. When we obey God’s commandments, surrender our will to him and let ourselves to be stiched with God’s grace we find happiness and purpose. There’s nothing better than being stiched with God’s grace.
We surrender to you.
Do what you want with us!
Because you are our everything.
Thank you for sticthing us together in our mothers’ wombs.
Keep on stitching! May Your will be done in our lives!
Nothing less, nothing more, nothing else!
In Jesus’ name,
Q4U: How has God been stitching you with grace?
Be blessed, my fellow pilgrim! Rejoice! God is at work in you!
