"So Ezra the scribe stood on a platform of wood which they had made for the purpose;...."
After observing God and His creations, I have come to realize that everything is made for a SPECIFIC purpose. You may not know the purpose of a thing, matter, group or relationship; however, the purpose exists. In reality, purpose pre-exists everything else. You may not know, before a thing is done or executed; the purpose is usually articulated. Have you forgotten that no organization is registered by the Corporate Affairs Commission in the case Nigeria, until its objective (purpose) is well articulated.
God is not an haphazard Maker: He makes all things in accordance or sun to or with His purpose. The purpose of every Android or iOS or Windows device usually pre-exists the design and the fabrication of such device. Gone were the days when the only major function of a mobile phone was to make calls and in some cases, send text messages. But as time goes by, many manufacturers have evolved their design purposes to suit the demands or tastes and preferences of their consumers. People desire...manufacturers design. The point is, there can be no design until there is a clear desire. The desire pre-exists the design.
From the Scripture that we read earlier, we understand that the wooden platform they not just appear; rather, it was made for THE purpose. That THE is what I call DESIRE, which pre-exists every DESIGN. Before you were brought out of your mother's womb, and before you were conceived in the womb; there was a DESIRE that necessitated your DESIGN. You may be dark complexioned or short or fat; I am of the the opinion that all those things are the necessary FEATURES of your DESIGN. Instead of worrying about how you look or appear or are formed or made; make deliberate effort to KNOW the DESIRE in the heart of God that necessitate your DESIGN.
I Gboyega Adedeji, dare to say that you were made for a purpose...the very reason your make-up or design. Wouldn't you celebrate God's creative design - I meant YOU!
