Recently, I've been really encouraged by this verse in Ephesians that reminds us of our Creator and his glorious ability to plan ahead...
First of all, I couldn’t ever be a ‘Good Christian’ - even if I lived at Church, fasted from anything that wasn’t a Manna alternative, and only listened to Rend Collective. If I never messed up, got angry, felt guilty, felt compassionate (but needed compassion) I wouldn’t be human, for that is the nature of the human condition.
So if you’re often left thinking, like me, that you feel like a bit of a train-wreck so far, just remember –
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.’ Ephesians 2:10
I love this verse! If you like lists – God has an amazing list of things coming up for you in your life. I wonder what that might look like?
Think of the trajectory that the Holy Spirit could have if you let Him in - if you really, truly let the Spirit take over your life and change you for the better; day by day, from the inside out. I mean, what a business plan!
Our God is one of divine simplicity and eternal and necessary existence. Let Him in.
