Set Apart

Sharon Dhinakaran
04 Jan
Many times, we question ourselves, “Am I chosen by God?” “Do I have any purpose in my life?”  And the word of God tells very clearly that you are chosen by God indeed for a specific purpose! In the Scriptures we read, Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5).  God chose Jeremiah in the womb of his mother as a prophet.  Similarly, God has chosen you when you were in your mother’s womb for a specific purpose. Until you surrender yourself to His call, God cannot function in your life.  Thereafter, until He finishes His purpose in your life, He will not rest. 
 
My grandfather, Dr. D.G.S Dhinakaran, was a failure in Mathematics. He went through poverty. His mother suffered from fits and he hardly had anyone to take care of him. He was alone, depressed and was on the verge of committing suicide. On 11th February 1955, as he neared the railway tracks to end his life, his uncle met him and told him about Jesus. His uncle said to him, “There is someone who gave His life for you. He can change your failure to success, He can change your weakness to strength, He can change your poverty to riches and He can make you a leader.” My grandfather clung onto this word and he prayed, “Jesus, if You are real, reveal Yourself to me” and Jesus took that moment and totally transformed his life. That's when he found his purpose in life; it is to be a blessing to the nations. Thereafter he led a victorious life. He preached gospel to millions.  Millions were blessed through his words. 

Beloved, Jesus will transform you too just like He did for my grandfather.  You have a purpose on this earth.  You have been set apart to do something special for His kingdom to come on earth.  In the Bible, David was born to be a king; Esther to be a queen; Zerubabbel to build the temple of God; Samuel to be a prophet; Deborah to be a judge.  This list continues with your calling!  Would you surrender yourself to the living God Jesus Christ? Executing His blessed plan on this earth in His way should be the priority in your life. You have been created for His glory (Isaiah 43:7).  For you are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that you should walk in them (Ephesians 2:10).

Prayer:

Dear Lord,

I know that I am chosen by You and that I am special to You. Reveal the purpose of my life and transform my life to live according to Your purpose for a good beginning in my life. Let Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Draw me closer to You to listen Your heart-beat.  I surrender my all for Your good works to be executed through me.  In Jesus’ name I pray,

Amen.
