Wednesday 20th July, Today’s Article: God’s Plan For You (Rhapsody of Realities Today)

GOD’S PLAN FOR YOU For we are his workmanship, created
in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we
should walk in them
(Ephesians 2:10).

Today’s opening scripture is a beautiful one, and I don’t want you to miss the blessing in it. Therefore, read it again aloud, carefully and
meditatively. Here, the Spirit of God is talking to everyone who believes in Jesus Christ, everyone who has received the salvation in Christ Jesus.

I want you to reckon that God is speaking to you right now, because He truly is. I love the AMPC rendering of the same scripture: “For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good
life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live]” (Ephesians 2:10 AMPC).

You’re God’s workmanship, His handicraft, His design, His craftsmanship. That means God has His brand on you; that’s the proof of your authentication. This is the greatest and best brand in the universe. You should never think failure or defeat. You’re too sublime
to fail; too excellent to be under. And that’s not all.

The next thing He tells you is, “…that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us….” This means your life isn’t an accident; God prearranged it. He wants you living the
good life which He prearranged. He planned a good life for you, right here on earth; it’s yours to live NOW.

There’re people who live in the wrong place, they went to the wrong school, they have the wrong friends, and some are in the wrong job or business. Why? They took a path that’s different from the path that God prearranged for them. But God has a plan for you; you’re set on course by God; follow His master plan through the Word. Blessed be God!

PRAYER

Dear Father, thank you for the full, deep and clear knowledge of your thoughts, plans, will and purposes for my life. I’m at the centre of your perfect will, and I walk in the paths which you prepared ahead of time,
living the good life which you prearranged and made ready for me to live, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
