God’s Plan Is Always Working

Reading for the Day – Romans 8:28 (NIV)

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, whohave been called according to his purpose.

Imagine a beautiful picture painted on the side of a warehouse. If I stand with my nose against the warehouse, I cannot see much of the picture. And what I can see doesn’t look very impressive. It doesn’t make much sense. It certainly doesn’t look like art.

We also have a limited perspective when we imagine God’s plan for our life. We are standing so close to the wall, that we can’t understand the big picture. The truth is that the Creator of the Universe has it all under control! He always has a plan, and that plan is always in motion.

In Jeremiah 29:11, God says, “For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” God knows the plans that He has for us. We don’t know – we can’t know – our human brains couldn’t understand the big picture even if we could figure it out.

Sometimes we make a mistake, big or small, and we think that we’ve just foiled God’s plan. We’re not giving God enough credit. First of all, God knew at the beginning of time that we would make that mistake. Second of all, He is God – obviously, He can fix our mistakes and/or make good things come of them. We just have to trust Him. We just have to trust in His divine plan.

And when that day comes, when we meet God face to face and the picture becomes clear, when we can stand back from the warehouse and see the painting, oh how beautiful and majestic it will be!

 Prayer Suggestion:

Dear Heavenly Father, Forgive me when I doubt your plan. Please forgive me when I am impatient. I do trust you God, and I know that the big picture is perfect, just like your perfect will. In Jesus Name, Amen.
