Today is an important day. It is an appointed day. It is the day that my new grandson will be born!! It is a birth day!!
Colt Daniel Ellis will be brought into the world today. His birth is not a random thing. God has formed him and created him and appointed him to be born in this time and in this place.
The Lord of all creation has a purpose and a plan for this new little one.
My prayer, as for all my grandchildren, is that this child will seek the Lord and know Him. Serve Him. Live in Him. Fulfill the purpose for which he is created.
Welcome to the world, precious one.
"and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, 'For we also are His children.' "Being then the children of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and thought of man. "Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now declaring to men that all people everywhere should repent, because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead." (Acts 17: 26-31)
