When David had served God’s purpose
in his own generation, he fell asleep.
Think about this. If there had been just one different husband-wife match-up in your genealogical tree you wouldn’t be here.
But here you are at this specific time, in this specific place, with your specific talents; a unique life, brought into being by hundreds of years of unique match-ups.
“When David had served God’s purpose in his own generation, he fell asleep.”
You can’t serve God’s purpose in your parents’ generation or your children’s generation. Only in your own.
You are here at exactly the time God wanted you here, equipped with exactly the gifts he wanted you to have to serve his purpose in your generation.
There are many things over which you had no control. You didn’t choose your parents, your country of birth, your race, or your generation.
But you do choose how you use these gifts.
Your shoes are custom-made;
no one else can fill them.
