God’s Amazing Plans!
Scripture reading for August 23rd: Ephesians 1, Psalm 19, Proverbs 15
Key Scriptures: Ephesians 1:5-10 “In love He predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of His will, to the praise of His glorious grace, with which He has blessed us in the Beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace, which He lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of His will, according to His purpose, which He set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in Him, things in heaven and on earth.”
God’s plans are amazing! The fact that He includes us in His plans is even more amazing! He lavishes on us His wisdom and purposes through the revelation of His Son, Jesus Christ. He is our redemption and through His shed blood we have forgiveness of sins freely given to all who repent. In Christ we are adopted as sons in God’s family and united with Him by His grace! The fullness of time will reveal the unfolding of these plans and nothing can stop them.
Faith confession: Thank You Lord for revealing Your amazing plans to me through Jesus Christ. In Him I have forgiveness of my sins and adoption into God’s family. I eagerly await the fullness of time!
Psalm 19:14 “Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.”
