“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
“Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”
Life is not about inventing a pathway for yourself, rather it is all about discovering the pathway that the Father has preordained for you to tread before the world began. In today’s opening Scripture, God told Jeremiah that his ordination as a prophet was settled before he was formed in the womb and before he came out of his mother’s womb.
This shows us the nature of God’s will; it predates time. Ephesians 2:10 says “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” This shows us that there are good works that God had pre-ordained for us to walk in before the beginning of time. Success in this world therefore depends on discovering God’s pre-ordained path for your life. There is nothing as graceful and glorious as following God’s plan for you.
The prepared and pre-ordained paths of God for you are void of human struggle. You need not pave them all by yourself, you only need to follow God as He leads you through life, a step at a time. God’s thoughts for us are thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give us a hope and a future, an expected end. A glorious future is in God’s thoughts and plans for us.
You don’t need to sweat it out, you only need to follow the Lord through. He is your guide, leading you into His purpose and plan for you. Beloved, whatever God has cut you out for is what you have grace for. Prepared stuffs and things are in pre-ordained paths for you. You will never be stranded following God through pre-ordained paths unto
your wealthy place. Let the Spirit guide you as you take giant strides into the fullness of God’s glory and purpose for you. Joseph went through pre-ordained paths of destiny for him.
Abraham went through the same. Isaac went through the same, and all the patriarchs of faith. You are led through yours as well in the Name of Jesus Christ. You will not miss your way through life, for the Spirit of God is guiding you, showing you the way to go. Walk in pre-ordained paths by faith as you follow the Spirit of God, one day
at a time.
My Solid Front (Confession): Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your predetermined counsel and preordained path for my life. I declare that now, Your Spirit guides me in the way that I should go in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
