What On Earth Am I Here For?
You are not an accident.
Your birth was no mistake or mishap, and your life is no fluke of
Your parents may not have planned you, but God did.
He was not at all surprised by your birth. In fact, He expected it.
Long before you were conceived by your parents, you were
conceived in the mind of God.
He thought of you first.
It is not fate, nor chance, nor luck, nor coincidence that you are
breathing at this very moment.
You are alive because God wanted to create you!
God prescribed every single detail of your body.
He deliberately chose your race, the color of your skin, your hair,
and every other feature.
He custom-made your body just the way He wanted it.
He also determined the natural talents you would possess and the
uniqueness of your personality.
Because God make you for a reason.
He also decided when you would be born and how long you would
He planned the days of your life in advance, choosing the exact time
of your birth and death.
God also planned where you’d be born and where you’d live for His
Your race and nationality are no accident.
God left no detail to chance. He planned it all for His purpose.
Nothing in your life is arbitrary. It’s all for a purpose.
Most amazing, God decided how you would be born.
Regardless of the circumstances of your birth or who your parents
are, God had a plan in creating you.
It doesn’t matter whether your parents were good, bad, or
God knew that those two individuals possessed custom “you” He had
in mind. They had the DNA God wanted to make you.
While there are illegitimate parents, there are no illegitimate
children. Many children are unplanned by their parents, but they are
not unplanned by God. God’s purpose took into account human error,
and even sin.
God never does anything accidentally, and He never makes mistakes.
He has a reason for everything He creates.
Every plant and every animal was planned by God, and every person
was designed with a purpose in mind.
God’s motive for creating you was His love.
God was thinking of you even before He made the world.
In fact, that’s why He created it! God designed this planet’s
environment just so we could live in it.
We are the focus of His love and the most valuable of all His
creation. This is how much God loves and values you!
God is not haphazard; He planned it all with great precision.
More physicists, biologists, and other scientists learn about the
universe, the better we understand how it is uniquely suited for our
existence, custom-made with the exact specifications that make
human life possible.
Why did God do all this?
Why did He bother to go to all the trouble of creating a universe for
Because He is a God of love. This kind of love is difficult to fathom,
but it’s fundamentally reliable. You were created as a special object
of God’s love! God made you so He could love you.
This is a truth to build your life on.
“God is love.” It doesn’t say God has love. He is love! Love is the
essence of God’s character.
He wasn’t lonely.
But He wanted to make you in order to express His Love.
If there was no God, we would all be “accidents,” the result of
astronomical random chance in the universe.
You could stop reading this blog, because life would have no
purpose or meaning or significance. There would be no right or
wrong, and no hope beyond your brief years here on earth.
But there has profound meaning!
We discover that meaning and purpose God the reference point of
This poem by Russell Kelfer sums it up:
You are who you are for a reason.
You’re part of an intricate plan.
You’re a precious and perfect unique design, Called God’s special
woman or man.
You look like you look for a reason.
Our God made no mistake.
He knit you together within the womb,
The parents you had were the ones he chose, And no matter how
you may feel, They were custom-designed with God’s plan in mind,
And they bear the Master’s seal.
No, that trauma you faced was not easy.
And God wept that it hurt you so;
But it was allowed to shape your heart So that into his likeness you’d
You are who you are for a reason,
You’ve been formed by the Master’s rod.
You are who you are, beloved, Because there is a God!
