Proverbs 20:12

The ear that hears and the eye that sees—
the Lord has made them both.

God made you. I hope you know and believe that. I hope you don’t just think of that as some kind of fairy tale thing that Christians say. I know some of you do. I know you think you’re just a product of your momma. You think you are nothing more than two people getting together. Maybe they loved each other. Maybe it was a mistake. Maybe you weren’t planned, but you’re here anyway. And you have gone through life feeling like you don’t belong. You’ve walked each day feeling like you were never meant to walk this earth – and if it hadn’t been for that one night – you wouldn’t be here.

If you feel that way, I have a different message for you. You may have been unplanned when it comes to your birth parents, but you were always planned when it comes to God. Your spiritual Father planned for you to be here, on this earth, living this life that He has put you in. He planned it.

How can I say that? Well, there are other scriptures that help support this idea, but I don’t need to go there. There’s plenty here. The ear that hears and the eye that sees – the Lord has made them both. You see, this doesn’t just speak of the fact that God is the one that has given us sight and hearing. This isn’t just saying that God created our eyes and our ears. Sure it means that.

But it goes much deeper than that. It goes to the person who has the eyes and ears. God didn’t just make a bunch of floating eyes and ears. Can you imagine how freaky that would be? To see a big, giant rolling eye ball, tumbling down the sidewalk would freak most people out. Or to see a giant ear holding on for dear life as it goes flying down a zip line. That’s just messed up.

God didn’t just make eyes and ears, He made the people. And He didn’t just make the physical bodies that have a place for the eyes and ears, He made the spiritual body that fills that physical body and gives it its life. He made all of you and He has a plan for you. He gave you eyes to see things in a certain way. He gave you ears to hear things that others don’t hear. He gave you a spirit that responds to those things that you hear and see in a way that brings Him glory.

So, if you’ve been wandering through life, feeling like your very existence was a mistake – you’ve been wrong. God designed you for a purpose and has a specific plan in mind. That’s what He created you for. That’s why you’re here.

Start living like it.
