(He Planned For You Before You Came!)
TO THE BIBLE: Ephesians 2:10 AMPC
“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].”
You, God’s child, were chosen in Christ before the world began to live a successful and glorious life. You were predestined for greatness and the good life. You’re not an accident to God; you didn’t take Him by surprise. God didn’t just start fixing things on your behalf when you appeared on the scene so you can have a great life, no. He planned for you before you came.
Our opening verse says you were recreated in Christ Jesus, thoroughly fashioned for good works, which God planned beforehand for you, taking paths that He preordained ahead of time. He created you to do good works, and these good works, He says, were preordained ahead of time. Not only that, the path; the road you’re to journey through in life, in order to fulfil your destiny in God has also been prearranged.
Thus everyone you’d meet, everything that’s consistent with your destiny in God has been laid on that path that you’re to journey in life. Therefore, your passion for excellence and the glory-life isn’t just a mere desire, but the result of predestination. Little wonder the words of the Apostle Paul in Philippians 2:13: “For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.”
Your role is to synchronise yourself through the Word of God and the Holy Ghost, in God’s place, in God’s time, for God’s purpose, in God’s way. Then your life will be on course. You’d find yourself functioning in the perfect will of God and walking in His time table. How exciting this is!
Romans 8:29-30; Titus 2:14
Through the power of the Word and by the working of God’s Spirit I walk in God’s perfect will for my life today! There’re no accidents or mishaps on my path, for I walk in preordained pathways of blessings! Goodness and mercy follow me everywhere I go, and I have the supernatural grace to excel in all my endeavours today, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
