For it was always in his perfect plan to adopt us as his delightful children, through our union with Jesus, the Anointed One, so that his tremendous love that cascades over us would glorify his grace—for the same love he has for his Beloved One, Jesus, he has for us. And this unfolding plan brings him great pleasure! Ephesians 1:5-6 TPT
I kept reading this over and over again. Something about this passage stirred my spirit. It was like a beautiful symphony playing an undiscovered piece of music, hidden in an ancient place. Gods perfect plan.
It was always there from the very beginning, we just didn’t see the depth of it. We knew we were adopted by the Father because of what Jesus did, but did you know it was because He just wanted a way to release His unending, unconditional love to mankind. To show off His mercy and favor on us so that all would see how extravagant He is with His own.
Let’s personalize that as if He is speaking of you. YOU! It was always His plan to adopt you as His own so that He could show you off to the world. He wanted you to have His wisdom. Unearthly wisdom. To astound those around you. He wanted to make you privy to things the world can’t understand. He set you up to succeed just as a way to show you off.
This isn’t wisdom we can get any other way but by spending time in His presence, talking with Him, asking Him questions, allowing that Love to permeate our thinking and transform our world. That’s why He said to seek Him first. He wants us to come to Him. Not in a hurry, but wanting to be with Him more then anyone or anything else.
Oh Father, thank You for loving me so much. You have a plan for me and it’s unfolding. Demonstrate Your deep abiding love, mercy and favor upon me today. May it be as if I just got out of the ocean, soaked and dripping with it. May I bask in the light of Your love and may that love be evident. It’s in Jesus name I thank you, Amen.
