Nothing about Jesus Christ’s life was haphazard, or random, or coincidental. Everything was a part of a perfect plan. So in order for everything about His life to fulfill the prophesies, every word He spoke and every action He completed also had to be fulfilling. And they were (see John 12:49-50)!
Sadly, His followers “did not understand any of this” (Luke 18:34).
Sadly, many people today don’t understand their own life’s purpose.
Sadly, often times I don’t either.
But God has a perfect plan for you and me.
All the days ordered for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be. (Psalm 139:16)
For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. (Ephesians 2:10)
I don’t have to lack understanding in this (John 14:16).
I can pray for wisdom (James 1:5).
And Jesus Himself is praying for me to follow the Father’s plans (Hebrews 7:25).
God has great plans for my life—and for your life. Don’t be like the disciples that did not understand any of this. Pray … ask for God’s wisdom … ask for the Holy Spirit’s illumination … and trust in Christ’s interceding prayer for you.
May your words and actions today fulfill the plans God has for you!
