God’s Plans For Our Lives Are Good!
Have you ever read the end of a book reading it from beginning to end? If you have, you gain advance knowledge of how the story ends and which characters overcome the various challenges along the story’s path. Such knowledge positions you to experience the entire story differently from those unaware of the story’s ending. Instead of experiencing alarm when main characters (a.k.a. victors) encounter seemingly impossible circumstances or intimidating opponents, you can settle back with confidence, knowing all will be well in the end. Knowing the end from the beginning is empowering.
As a believer, do you realize how God has similarly empowered you with advance knowledge concerning His plans for your life? In the Contemporary English Version of Jeremiah 29:11, God insists, “I will bless you with a future filled with hope – a future of success, not of suffering.”
Knowing the end from the beginning, God knows the good works we each will complete according to His purpose. God also knows we are built to succeed because His purpose for each of us preceded His design of each of us. So the question becomes do you know and believe God’s plans for your success?
God is love and He loves you – thoroughly. God is love and love never fails.
God’s plans for us are good. Character development, though often uncomfortable, is evidence of God’s love. To wisely steward the success He has for us, we must be prepared.
Some life challenges may look and sound like Goliath, taunting your very presence. However, remember Goliath’s end. No foe can withstand the teaming of your availability with God’s ability. God is love and love never fails.
God's plans for you are perfect and His timing is impeccable. Align with God's purpose and experience His power to fulfill His plans for you.
Reread Romans 8:37-39. Victory is our outcome. God’s plans for our lives are good!
