Ephesians 2:10 AMP; For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].
For those of you who missed that, let me just tell you that you are His, and He has a plan for you. Your job is not to ask when, but to be ready as that plan unfolds. Your job is not to be qualified, He qualifies you for what He has planned for you. He plans to use your mess to become your message. He plans to take your bad stuff and use it for good stuff. Everything you’ve been through, are going through and will go through is just a setup to your destiny.
You may say, “The odds are against me. I’m a nobody! How could God have a plan for me?” Don’t quit now! Never in a million years could a little orphan Jewish girl dream of being a queen and playing such a large role in the redemption of her people. I’m sure she didn’t understand a lot of things until the time for her purpose was fulfilled. She spent time with God, got His plan and bravely did it. God had Esther placed in the palace and chosen by the king to save her people.
What are you willing to do for the King? Anything? Then prepare yourself and be ready because any day now, your King will come for you and place you in a position of influence to save His people. His eyes are roaming through the whole earth looking for someone who trusts Him to do what only He can do and give Him the glory for it. What will He find in you?
Father, thank you for this reminder of the great plans You have for me. May you find me in the secret place, not hiding from the world, but waiting on Your voice. How I love You! There is no place I’d rather be than here in Your arms. Prepare me to be what You need me to be during these last days. It’s in Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen
