In all my life, I’ve never heard of a perfect plan. Seems there’s a flaw in just about any plan that man can derive. Just when you think you have a great plan, there’s someone who comes along with their voice of logic and show you just where the flaw is. But guess what? God has a plan and His plans are perfect even when you think they’re not. He has a plan for your life that is perfect, based on His ways of being and doing. You may not be able to figure it all out, but oh my, just you wait and see.
Instead of trying to figure it out, let’s position ourselves to be used of God. We may be a very small piece in a very large puzzle, but we’re still a piece and God has purpose for that piece. It completes a bigger picture. There’s no box to look at to see what it will become, but when you look into the Fathers eyes, you can see a small reflection of the final product-a beautiful bride.
“Give thanks to the Lord. Call on his name. Make known among the nations what he has done. Sing to him. Make music to praise him. Meditate on all the miracles he has done. Brag about his holy name. Let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. Search for the Lord and his strength. Always seek his presence.” I Chronicles 16:8-11 GW
Wow! That is it in a nutshell isn’t it, Lord. This is how our mornings should begin and our evenings should end. We thank you Lord for the great things You have done in our past and our future. What a delight it is to seek Your face, to soak in Your presence, to sing songs to You in the morning. We will remember all the great things You have done. It is an honor to be called Your child. You are our strength for this day. You give us our daily bread, we feast on Your Word and are satisfied. Wrap us tightly in Your arms of grace and protect us from all evil. We declare your Kingdom come and Your perfect will be done on the earth as it is in heaven. We look forward to Your perfectly ordered plan for us today. It’s so sweet to trust in You. I will not be ashamed, you will not let my enemies triumph over me. In Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.
