Have you ever wondered why you were born in the place where you were born? Have you ever thought about what it would have been like to live in a different time in history? These are questions that we will never be able to fully answer on this side of eternity. However, you can rest assured that, according to Scripture, God, before He created you, ordained in His perfect will that you would be born exactly where and when He chose.

The divine appointment which we call our birthday was chosen for our own good, and for God’s Own glory. In the heart of every person, at every place and time, since the beginning of creation, God has placed the idea of eternity, and revelation of Himself.

He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.

Ecclesiastes 3:11

For this reason, every single one of us is without excuse if we have failed to acknowledge and worship God. (Romans 1:19-20) We have all failed to do this at one time or another, but the realization that we are part of God’s eternal, unseen plan should cause us to rejoice, and should motivate us to serve Him with joy.

I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.

Ecclesiastes 3:12

  1. Great post! You really give food for thought in your posts.

    I wanted to thank you for you comment on my Anniversary post. I just read it for the first time after a long, hard day ending a long, hard week.

    Those Scriptures brought me to tears.

    He is truly the God of the storm, isn’t He? Those verses make me want to dig some more in Nahum.

    Thank you so much for speaking that Word! What an encouragement it has been for me today!

    Many thanks,
    Rena
