During worship at work yesterday morning, a colleague shared about how God had already planned our lives way before we were born.
In a way, it's great to know that God has a plan for me right from the start. And as he has promised, this are plans to prosper me and not to harm me.
The colleague also went on to talk about how God did not only favoured the Jews back in Bible times, even though that's all we get to read about in the Bible. God was working with the other nations as well, moving them around the world and placing them just where he wanted them.
And all this for their own good.
The thing is, I can't help but feel a little bit like a pawn. That the only reason why I'm living is to be moved around by God.
Does it make a difference that the reason why he moved me around is for my good?
I suppose it makes the experience a little more pleasant....but yet, I still can't shake off the feeling that I'm just a chess piece.
Yes, I should be thankful to God for giving me life and sustaining me and all that, but why even create me in the first place if only just to move me around?
I don't have an answer for this, besides the fact that I can't exactly change the fact that I've been created, and I'm currently living and since God deemed it so, I suppose I should try to live my life glorifying and sharing him as best as I can.
Does anybody have any further insights to this?
