Before the church was constructedThe idea was there for having a building for serving several purposes like, church, classrooms, cafeteria, etc.
An architect, engineer and quantity surveyor and team
Jointly they reflected church ideas/purposes in the following:
- Elevations (views)
- Landscaping plan
- Estimates of materials
- Specifications for doors, windows, stairs, elevators, etc.
- The final picture of the building the way it looks when finished
God had you in mind before you came"Then God said, 'Let us make man in our image, in our likeness...'"
"Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God and there is no other; I
am God there is no other like me. I made known the end from the beginning, from
ancient times, what is still to come. I say: My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please." -- Isaiah 46:9,10
God knows your end from the beginning"For He chose us in him before the creation of the world to be
holy and blameless in His sight" -- Ephesians 1:4
"The Lord Almighty has sworn, 'Surely, as I have planned,
so it will be, and as I have purposed, so it will stand.'" -- Isaiah 14:24
Everyone has come for a very specific purpose
As fingerprints differ, everyone has their specific task to accomplish
"For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless." -- Psalms 84:11
There is nothing that was not provided for you to accomplish your task
How can I or you accomplish God's purpose?
- Adam and Eve at the garden
- Abraham and Sarah, concubine
- Ananias and Sapphira
- Joseph and Potiphar's wife
- Job and his wife
- Four brothers in Babylon
Stop doubting God's wisdom
1 Peter 5:6,7
- You are special to God, created to fulfill and accomplish His special purpose regardless of who you are
- God has already supplied all you need to accomplish His purpose
- Your task is unique and different from any other human being
- If you admit and respect His wisdom all your days, you will never fall
