I am always in awe of how God makes Himself evident to a hurting world in so many ways if we just take a moment to realize it. One of the most amazing proofs is our fingerprint. None of us has the same fingerprint. None of us has the same talent or gifts because God has given each of us His work to do for our lives and He calls us to excellence because whatever we do, we are to do it with all our hearts as unto the Lord whom we serve as Colossians 3:23 reminds us.
Job 37:7 says "He sealeth up the hand of every man that all men may know His word."... WOW... Gods mark is on each of us on our human hands... Finger Prints are His mark!!!
SO how will this look in our lives and once we know this... it's an amazing truth to live out!
I read this today and must share this on God's FIngerprints!!!
God tells us that He has also recorded the ID of all those who are His. But it’s not with lifeless ink and paper. It’s spiritually written by God’s omniscient knowledge of our uniqueness. His knowing us when we were a birthed from His eternal mind. You see, God has, indeed, divinely fingerprinted every individual who has or will exist. And within that knowledge He also knows those who are His and those who will not be written in the Lamb’s book of life (Revelation 13:8; 27:27).
God’s foreknowledge of who will actually be in that book, who will have eternal life in His presence, is one of those theological mysteries. Ultimately, only God knows the genuinely faithful. As the psalmist says, “Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit.” (Psalm 147:5, NIV84) However, Scripture does teach us that we have a “system of checks and balances.” Consider when Peter instructs, “Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election.” (2 Peter 1:10, TNIV) Or, elsewhere in Scripture, “We have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold firmly till the end our original conviction.” (Heb. 3:24, TNIV; cf. Phil. 2:12)
Scripture teaches, concerning all people, that God created them before the beginning of the world in and for His eternal plan (Romans 9:22-24, NIV84). My deeply rooted joy and solace is that He has imprinted me along with all the other imprints of his people. Looking at the uniqueness of the swirls and loops on your fingers is a magnificent testimony to your imprinted soul that’s been recorded by love. Examine them every now and then.
Your prints have been recorded with the blood of Jesus Christ and your fingerprint card has, is, and always will be in God's filing system: His heart.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will—to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. (Ephesians 1:3-6, TNIV)
WOW!!! OUR FINGERPRINTS HAVE BEEN RECORDED WITH THE BLOOF OF JESUS AND OUR FINGERPRINT CARD HAS, IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE IN GOD'S FILING SYSTEM: HIS HEART!!!
That my friends is our hope. Now there's just one thing to do... Lets go out and use the gifts He has given us in our unique way to bless others.
Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
Please share your thoughts!!
