Greetings in the powerful name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Truly with no shadow of doubt Our God is an awesome God, He operates in an immaculate way and His thoroughness in preparation and execution is one to desire and aspire towards. He provides strength for the journey, the peace from heaven, meets needs in our lives and hearts that we do not even know we need as yet.
In the Book of Jeremiah 1 (NLT) God says:
5“I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart
and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”
Our Heavenly Father takes us very seriously! God takes time to map out our lives, to prepare for us not just anything but the best. He paves a path that enables us to walk and experience His faithfulness and blessings in our lives before we even accept Him in our hearts. We see in the Book of Jeremiah chapter 1 how Jeremiah is uncertain and unsure, lacking confidence in his ability, but God affirms that He has already made a way even when he does not see it possible.
There are certain steps that we take or do not take in our lives because of fear or doubt or lacking courage but God calls us to a place he has already prepared. There is nothing that God does not know about us and therefore we can come to God with the confidence that he knew us before the foundations of the earth and that He has made provision for any and every area of our lives.
In the natural when we are expecting visitors; we clean, cook, and prepare for the important people who will grace us with their presence. Likewise God sees us as important and as esteemed guests, therefore does not only prepare for us on arrival, but prepared long ago everything we would need for our lives and journey we will travel.
When Life knocks us down and we are discouraged, disappointed, hurt and it seems as though Jesus is not in our boat remember:
Jeremiah 29 (NLT)
v11 for I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call on me and you will come and pray to me, and I will hear [your voice] and I will listen to you.
The God of perfection, abundance, excellence and love Bless you.
