8/16/14 Daily Devotion

James 1:18 He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created.

Some would like to disagree with the wording of James in this verse. They would like to claim that we are brought into this world through the decision of our parents, not through the decision of God. They would, if they could, leave God completely out of the equation. This is, to put it plainly, nonsense. God knew before the world was formed who would tread upon its existence. God knew before our parents ever met that they were going to bring life into our existence. God knew. Therefore, we are here because of the actions and desire of God. We are here because He has allowed us to live in this wonderful, unique, sometimes difficult world. He chose to give us birth, and this birth is infiltrated by the presence of His Word within our lives, by the truth of its existence, by the validity of its offering to this world.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me believe that you have always existed, that you always will, and what this means for my life.
