before you were MADE
A pile of Minecraft blocks can become anything. Especially if you’re in Creative mode, your imagination is the only limit in terms of what you can build. Do you build by instinct or do you always have a plan? Do you like building LEGO kits, or do you prefer making the blocks into anything you like?
When God made you, he knew exactly what he was going to make before he started.
Psalm 139:16 says ‘Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.’
Because God made you, he could make all kinds of plans for you and your life. He’s in charge.
Does that make you feel safe? Or does it make you feel like you’ve lost control? Is it better for us to be in charge of our lives, or God?
Try making a list of all the things you’re not in control of (e.g. where and when you were born). What things does that leave for you to be in control of?
