By Richard Hamm,
Today is your birthday. Why should you celebrate the day you were born? Psalm 139 says – “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made, your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”
Why should you celebrate this day? This is the day you entered this earth, the day you began your journey to discover the purpose for which you were created. What a journey every one of us has before us from the moment we take our first breath. Every year of living on this earth is another privilege to display in the earth a unique expression of who God is and how He feels, thinks and looks. As Christians, we are the sons of God in the world, a living reality of God having residence in us. We should cherish the privilege, opportunity and great adventure we have to put on display the living reality of Him living in us. We have been given an awesome stewardship of a life to live – for Him, by Him, through Him and hopefully, for His glory. We should desire to live our life for His purpose and fulfill all that He created us to be.
Celebrate your life today. You were conceived in His mind before He created the world. You were sent to this earth for a distinct purpose. You were given a personality that is only unique to you. You were given gifts, anointings, talents and abilities that are unique to you. You were given flaws and weaknesses that are unique to you which help you to remain humble and in need of others. You have been given a life to live. Live your life as fully as you can. Your life is a treasure. You are a treasure. Make it your aim to look forward to what this year will unfold and what your Father will reveal to you, in you and through you. I celebrate with you and thank God for you. Today truly is the day that the Lord has made, and we should rejoice and be glad in it!
