"In Him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will." Ephesians 1:11
God readies us to do His will and arms us with everything we need to walk in the faithfulness of love. He tugs at our hearts so we will recognize the power of His greatness. He changes lives and allows us to see ourselves as He see us; capable and ABLE to serve Him with ALL of our hearts.
There’s benefit in understanding we are children of God. When we know Him as loving Father and receive the gifts He provides, we learn HOW to welcome His STRENGTH. He blesses us with desire to be used by Him and allows us to feel His nudging. He opens our hearts to GROW.
God knows our desire to find fulfillment. He shows how to faithfully TRUST. He helps us focus on Jesus and find purpose in the timing of His plan. He nurtures our hearts with His love.
God diminishes fear as we welcome the PEACE of His presence and faithfully respond. He reveals His will when the timing is right and orchestrates the happenings of our days. He demonstrates His holiness in mighty ways so we will recognize we’re heading in the right direction.
God wants us to know we are loved by Him and welcome abundant JOY. We must keep our eyes focused and BELIEVE He is working for the good. He is GOD! He loves us! He has created us to do great things!
Dear God, thank you for moments to feel the strength of Your holiness. Thank you for growing us by Your greatness and helping us recognize what YOU SEE in us. We will keep our eyes focused on what is GOOD and never doubt Your ability to use us in mighty ways. Thank you for arming us with everything we need to welcome JOY. Thank you for creating us to serve You with gladness. Amen
