The choices a father makes for his child without consulting him go a long way in revealing the plans that father has for his child.
God is our Father and our Creator. He made some vital choices for us without any consultation with us. He didn’t do this because He is bossy or dictatorial. He did so because of His plans for us which are rooted in His love. His love for us is incomprehensible. It is incredible! He loves us so much He chose to die for us. Believe me, even if you were the only human on earth, God would have still died for you. Yes! He loves you more than you can ever know. Nevertheless, my concern today is not His love but the expression of His love — HIS PLANS. God has wonderful plans for you. They are too colorful for your imagination to grasp.

They go a long way in revealing what He had on His mind when He created you. God has .a purpose for making you Black and not White, Nigerian and not American, Male and not Female, etc. All these are based on Divine Calculation!
Believe it or not, God has specific reasons for creating you and your fulfillment lies in discovering and walking in God’s purpose for your life. Why was I born into my family? Why am I the firstborn? Why am I the only daughter of my parents? These and many more are the questions you must begin to ask God in prayer.
