Jeremiah 29:11 ESV “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

Our God designs a specific plan for all of us, because He has chosen us to be His elect or nation before the foundation of the world. It is very sad to focus more on the worldy affairs and determine our course of action in the future. When Our Lord Jesus holds our future, we try our best to live out our daily life conforming to the patterns of the world. We need to understand the fact that nobody can change the plan of God that He has already designed for His people. Thus the chosen ones should come back to the Lord Jesus and submit their will. As Paul states in Hebrew 12:1-2, let us set aside our old manner of life and embrace the Christ-fashioned life so that we can fix our eyes on the Lord Jesus and run for the sake of the gospel of Christ. If it is not our primary goal, we will soon end up with corrupt and deceitful dreams and desires. We will pledge our allegiance to deny the Lord Jesus and his precious gospel of the truth. Our very life will be filled with compromises and all inclusive kind of secular attitudes toward the risen Saviour.

We may not know the entire design of our life, but He knows about it. Many things may seem coincidental to our mind, but God is behind every aspect of our life. All we can do is to obey His commandments and leave the consequences to Christ. As a fact of the matter, the Lord Jesus Christ sees the beginning from the end and He has the clear picture of any outcome or results in regards to earthly and eternal lives. God is certain about His peoples’ life on earth, because He has predestined us, called us, justified us and has glorified us. What a great privilege it is! He has already done a great thing in our life. It means He has saved us to be His people and His nation. What more good things do we want?
