I always wondered, "Why did I pick technical Jobs related to computers? How far can I go with it? How successful will I be in the future? Will it last for a long time? Will I be able to build my career in the right path?" But, God gave me an answer for all my questions.
He was preparing me before even I knew Him (Jesus). I did not choose this career, but God brought me to this place. He gave me the knowledge, He gave me skills, He showed me the path, He gave the jobs and made me more and more prosperous, and above all He had a plan for me which I never knew. Now He is giving me the WISDOM to open my eyes and see His GLORIOUS work in my life.
I don’t like to call my decision to follow Jesus or my baptism as an act of conversion or changing religion, because that is not what baptism or giving your life to Jesus really is. When God created Man (Gen1:27), He did not divide mankind into any religion or caste or any denomination. The first man on earth “Adam” was created by God in His own image (Gen1:26) out of His love. God gave him the rights and privileges on earth (Gen1:28-30) , but Adam lost that authority and also his relationship with God his Father because of his sin. (Gen3:1-6). I was in the same state of sin and I did not know my Father in Heaven and my Creator (Is 6:9-10, Mt 13:13-15) until I received Jesus into my life.
As a teenager, I found myself attending a youth festival that was different from other youth festivals in that it was a prayer gathering. I already had everything I wished for – friends, family, education and seemingly heading in the right direction - what could God offer that I would even be remotely interested in? Yet, I found myself drawn to the Bible being preached especially when a speaker quoted this verse from John 10:10, Jesus speaks to the people “Behold I have come to give you life and life in all His fullness”.
Can a woman forget her nursing child, and not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, yet I will not forget. See, I have carved you on the palms of My hands. (Isaish 49:15-16)
He (JESUS) was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed'. (Isaiah 53:5)
Jesus loves you, wants to bless you abundantly and wants to make you a blessing!
Your life on the earth is not a mere accident, a mistake or by chance. God has a plan and purpose for your life on the earth and He desires to have a personal relationship with you! When you come to know God personally and experience His love, when you start focusing on eternal truths and seek His plan and go about fulfilling the purpose for which He created you, then you will have a peace, joy and satisfaction that you would never have otherwise and enjoy His abundant blessings in your everyday life… you will find meaning and purpose in life and start experiencing the FULLNESS of LIFE that Jesus promised.
