You are not an accident.

Your birth was no mistake or mishap, and your life is no fluke of nature.
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 made you for a reason, He also decided when you would be born and how long you would live. 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 purpose. Your race and nationality are no accident. God left His purpose. Your race and nationality are no accident. God left no detail to chance. He planned it all for His 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 indifferent. God knew that those two individuals possessed exactly the right genetic makeup to create the 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. God loves and values You.

Why did God do all this? Why did He bother to go to all the trouble of creating a universe for us?
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.

The Bible tells us, "God is Love." It doesn't say God has love, but He is Love!
Love is the essence of God's character.
There is perfect love in the fellowship of the Trinity, so God didn't need to create you.
He wasn't lonely. But He wanted to make you in order to express His Love.

God says, "I have carried you since you were born; I have taken care of you from your birth. Even when you are old, I will be the same. Even when you hair has turned gray, I will take care of you. I made you and will take care of you."

If there was no God, we would all be "accidents" the result of astronomical random chance in the universe.
You could to believe in God, 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 is a God who made you for a reason, and your life has profound meaning!
We discover that meaning and purpose only when we make God the reference point of our lives.
"The way to understand ourselves is by what God is and by what He does for us." (Roman 12:3)

Verse to Remember: "I am your Creator. You were in my care even before you were born." (Isaiah 44:2).
