A Perfect Plan
The Lord is interested and involved in each moment of our life. He has carefully mapped out every inch of our journey through each day, and as much as we may feel things happen by chance or haphazardly, don’t forget that it has all been preplanned in His wisdom and foreknowledge. Things may seem to be unravelling in the world around you and even in your personal life. But remember, “As for God, His way is perfect: the word of the Lord is tried: He is a buckler to all those that trust in Him” (Psalm 18:30). Yes, His way is indeed perfect, even in the midst of what might seem complete turmoil and upheaval. Through it all He wants us to stay focused on Himself and trust Him implicitly. Be conscious of His presence and be sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit step by step. This will give you confidence, peace, joy, and assurance of His love in your heart, as you travel through a world of trials, tests, and the breakdown of everything good and holy. The promise to the one who stays focused and centered on Christ is, “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusteth in Thee” (Isaiah 26:3).
