Remember the movie “I Robot” starring Will Smith? A moment of reflection on your Journey to More:

Remember the movie “I Robot”, starring Will Smith? I loved it. “I Robot” was one of many manufactured (created) robots designed to help the world become a better place to live. A problem arose when the robots began to take on human characteristics, many of them taking on destructive behaviors, individual agendas, and doing things that their handlers couldn’t control. One of the ‘good’ robots, “I Robot”, took it upon himself to save the world from other destructive robots.

Then, I Robot, trying save himself from being destroyed by his handlers, gave this explanation for his own “good” purpose and existence: “My father made me for a purpose. Don’t you think we’re all made for a purpose?

This gave me pause to think about why God created me and placed me on this earth. Did He put me here to make my own decisions and do what I wanted to do --- as out-of-His-control that might become? Was it to make decisions for myself, taking control for my care, security and my own longevity? Perhaps I was created to recruit and control other robots for my own cause(s)? Silly as these assumptions might be, sillier still is to think that to be true, or that I have control over anything.

“God has saved me and called me with a holy (set apart for God) calling, not for my will or for my works, but according to His own purpose and grace.”  (2 Timothy 1:9).

“In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of Him, who works all things after the counsel of His own will”. Ephesians 1:11.

“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for You have created all things, and for Your pleasure they are and were created.” Rev. 4:11
Abba Father, thank You for creating me with very specific purposes in Mind. My every breath was designed for Your will and Your Kingdom purposes. I’m keenly aware that You don’t need me, but lovingly allow me represent You out of Your grace and mercy. Teach me to “number my days”, stay keenly aware of the brevity of my life and Your purposes for me while I’m here. And, as I pursue closeness to You and Your Kingdom purposes, what You have waiting for me when I get Home. I love you with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength.
