Think on this friend. Jeremiah 1: 5” Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations,” This was before your sex was known!
What you would be on earth, the journey of your life, has been predetermined before you were conceived. Let not your heart be troubled, it is still part of the plan! A failed marriage, or whatever cannot and will not terminate the mandate of God upon your life.
I guess God knew you would be divorced, remarry and divorced again and again like the Samaritan woman in John 4, yet He took out time to seek you out and He hasn’t changed His mind about you, rather He is concerned and is reaching out to you.
You have a say friend! Determine to cooperate with the Lord by forsaking sin, living a holy life as best as you can, leaning on the Holy Spirit to help you every which way! We just must not continue in sin that grace may abound – Romans 6:1. Far be it!
Joseph got a dream and received intense hatred from his brothers. His father took it in with a grain of salt. Joseph went through all ills to preserve the seeds of Abraham the friend of God. Abram before he became the father of nations was called out of darkness to walk before God and be blameless. It was unheard of in his generation of idol worshippers? I can go on and on with examples in scriptures of those that God uses to achieve phenomenal exploit.
Above all you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their evil desires. 2 Peter 3:3
The wicked one will make fun of your faith, deride your person, sneer at your achievement, taunts the situation and circumstances of your life, ridicule your humility and sensitivity. They asked Jesus to save himself from the cross, they must have sneered at Mary also – holy Sister, you were not afterall holy as you pretend to be, who’s pregnancy is it anyways? Holy Spirit? Ha ha ha! She was almost stoned but for the quick intervention of God sending an angel to Joseph in a dream.
How often do we deride that which we do not know or understand.

Ephesians 2:10 For we are His workmanship , created in Christ Jesus for good works , which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
Friends, please note that God had plans for your life. You are not here by accident. It does not matter what you are going through right now, it will work out for the good for which God created you.
You see, God had a great task to be accomplished in the future. He then stood in the beginning of time, created and formed you in Christ Jesus as a spirit being equipped to do this lofty future task.
Remember that as humans God gave us free will. You came to earth through whatever means which plays a part in who you are destined to be. Everything must of necessity work for your good even though you might not enjoy it in the moment, there is a master plan – prayerfully embrace it.
Every experience of life is to equip you and enable you to do the task created in advance for you to do. If you haven’t experienced the loss of a spouse, how do you console someone in that position. Divorce, separation or distance from each other can not stand next to death. Death is final, hope is lost until eternity, unlike divorce and separation which can be restored while distance is temporal.
How do you console a 33 year old mother of two children under 2 years that have just lost her husband?
How do you encourage a young wife that has just been rejected, abandoned and deeply injured?
How do you give hope to a chaste beautiful young woman who no eligible man checks out- ask out? How do you make her see that she is beautiful and that the right man will come as ordained by God?
How do you help others to see what you see in the words of God, the predestined plan and purpose for which he created us all in Christ Jesus, if you yourself haven’t gone through things that brought you to your knees and points you to the Word where you found yourself.
Now you know why you are going through what you are going through. You have to be equipped to do what you are created to do.
The right experience that will build your character to reflect Christ Jesus does not come natural to us. Remember our nature is of this world, corrupt, self seeking and self gratifying. It is in Christ Jesus that we are transformed daily to be who God created us to be.
Therefore, friends in whatever situation you are in right now ask God to give you discernment to learn what you need to learn and move to the next stage of life.
To get to your final destination from where you are, you need to cooperate with God by seeking his face, yielding your self and obeying every instructions backed up by the word of God.
Be led by the Holy Spirit towards becoming who God created you to be. God said he has a plan for you, to bless you and not to harm you, and to see you to an expected end – to fulfill your destiny – the work God had prepared in advance for you to do.
Repent therefor from every disobedience-sin, ask Jesus into your life, accept his plan for your life- he knows you better than you know yourself and knows what is good for you. Embrace the love of Christ, let it guide you.
You will get there, you will make it, your life is beautiful, your future is colorful and your destiny is glorious!
