In Christ — There’s a Plan!

Day 3227: Another Monday to demonstrate the difference following Christ has made in your life, as everyday is the same to Him!

Scripture: For I am God’s masterpiece!  I was created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God had planned in advance for me to do! Ephesians 2:10

Thoughts/questions: As a career counselor, the better I knew the student whom I was working with, the better plan we could make for their vocational choices. I was not the all-powerful and all-knowing demanding person who was trying to control their lives. No, as I became aware of what they were good at; what they were passionate about; and what their values were, I then could point out what would be the best path for them to take. Then the rest was up to them!

Our loving Creator God did the same with us. Knowing us completely to the point of even being aware of our future, He created what would be the best plan for us within His goal of us producing good works throughout our lives! The most appropriate plan for us is His plan, but the rest is up to us!

A masterpiece hidden in someone’s cellar would not be appropriate at all. And as God’s masterpieces, we must also be appropriately placed! Are you fighting God’s plan with your own ‘better plan’, or humbly submitting to His word and the leading of His Spirit?

His ways aren’t always our ways, so His plan may sound a bit foolish to human reasoning, but we are to confidently move forward by faith! God’s plan for each of us is in place; let’s all seek to fulfill His plan for our lives!

Suggested Prayer: Father God, help me to trust You completely in all areas of my life . . .
