God’s plan for today

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

 

Ever considered the fact that when you woke up this morning there were already good works prepared for you to do?

You don’t have have to do them, but they are there, ready for you to do them should you choose.

It’s pretty amazing to consider that when God created us, before we breathed a breath, God prepared the opportunities of today; the good works he would offer us.

I think it’s tempting to think of this in large and grand terms. To look for opportunities of immense consequence to identify as these good works. But in reality, our days are often made up of small and seemingly inconsequential moments. But these are the moments where we can find the works God prepared in advance for us to do. Opportunities to love and to serve.

God made plans for us today, and tomorrow, and the next day. And he made all these plans in advance.

I wonder what opportunities God has for me today?

  1. I think that is a powerful saying and not to many people recgonize that and you enlighted me and my friend in. Church today when we read that saying thank you for sharing this with everyone

  2. Sometimes I wonder what God has planned for my life. I really want to be a teacher of Gods word. So the topic was a very great topic.
