Grace and peace be unto you.

“I make 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 46:10).
How would you describe God’s purpose for your life? Did you know that he put measures in place to protect his purpose? Scripture says, “No weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed, and you shall refute every tongue that rises against you in judgment…” (Isaiah 54:17). God invested time in your creation for you to carry out a specific role on the earth. This role will save many lives and bring glory to his name. As a result, he has been protecting you and will continue to do so, until he calls you home.
The story is told that Moses was born during the period in which Pharaoh gave instructions that all the boy babies born to Hebrew women should be killed. Nonetheless, after Moses’s birth, his mother hid him for three months. When she could no longer hide him, she put him in a basket and placed him among the reeds by the river bank while his sister, Miriam, watched from a distance.
It so happened that Pharaoh’s daughter came to bathe at the river. She saw the basket and the baby crying, and had pity on him. Miriam, gladly offered to get one of the Hebrew women to nurse him. She went for her mother who agreed to nurse him. As per agreement, she nursed him and after he was weaned, gave him to Pharaoh’s daughter who raised him as her son (Exodus 2:1-10).
God had chosen Moses to be the deliverer of Israel, therefore Pharaoh’s order could not prematurely end his life and interrupt God’s purpose. Instead, God used Pharaoh’s edict to accomplish his purpose. Likewise, God has chosen you to carry out his purpose and no obstacle will stand in his way. He will use the impediments in your life to accomplish his purpose. If he has not yet revealed his purpose for your life, trust him and joyfully do the daily tasks that he gives you. In his time, he will reveal your purpose. Moses knew his purpose when he was 80 years old (Exodus 3:1-10), while Jeremiah’s purpose was revealed when he was 17 years old (Jeremiah 1:4-5).
