He Prepared Us

29 Jan

Sacrifice and offering you did not desire,
but a body you prepared for me;
in burnt offerings and sin offerings you took no delight.
Then I said, As is written of me in the scroll,
Behold, I come to do your will, O God.  (Heb 10:5b-7)

We may wonder why things happen to us in this life.

We may wonder why we are the way we are:  fat or thin, short or tall, black or white, rich or poor.

You know what?

God made us.

Each and every one of us.

Our frailties and our strengths, He made.

Our idiosyncrasies and our resolve, He made.

He made us, He knows us, He has a plan for us.

All He wants to hear are the magic words, “I come to do your will, O God.”

What will He hear from you today?

FAITH ACTION:  Reflect upon the words of the popular song, “Here I Am, Lord”

Here I am Lord
I’ve come to do your will
make of me what pleases you
here I am, here I am Lord

You called my name
and beckoned me to come
before you now I stand
to listen to your word.

You spoke the words
of everlasting love
if I shall turn from you
to whom would I run
