Category: God's Will
Written by Bob Klingenberg
God has a glorious purpose for each one of our lives. We read in Ephesians 1:11 about all of our lives,
“…having been predestined according to HIS PURPOSE Who works
ALL THINGS after the counsel of His will."
More than impressive when we read those words, far more. God's purpose for us is so all-encompassign, that He tells us that He is at work in each and every detail of it. All things! He leaves nothing to chance. Nothing is left dangling in the wind. It then should be the heart of each one of us as to what is expressed in the following words:
"I HAVE MY PURPOSE FROM GOD TO COMPLETE, PROMISES TO
GOD TO KEEP, AND MILES TO GO BEFORE I SLEEP."
God is not a pointless, purposeless, aimless, directionless God in anything that He does. We have not been created by a scatterbrain God Who lives in the goalless whim of the moment. He does not set things in motion, and then like the Deists believe, says to us. "Lot's of luck, you are on your own. And when you discover what you are going to do with your life, let me know, for I right now I have no clue." No, no, a milllion times no. In other words:
“HE WAS NOT SIMPLY IN THE MOOD FOR CREATING THINGS AND PEOPLE
ONE DAY, AND SO HE WENT ON A CREATIVE RAMPAGE JUST FOR
THE FUN OF IT BUT WITHOUT ANY ETERNAL INTENT OR GOAL.”
