[God]) has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began.
2 Timothy 1:9
In ancient times, an ingenious man created a device allowing him to see through walls. It sounds like science fiction, but this man invented a way to stand in the middle of his room and see through the wall to the outside world. He called his invention—a window.
From earliest times, men and women have been inventing devices to make life easier—windows and doors, buggies and cars, air conditioners, computers, and untold millions of items. History’s patent office has never experienced a slowdown.
Humans are creative because we’re made in the image of the Creator; and if we know how to design objects for a purpose, don’t you suppose the Creator has designed each of us for a purpose? Your specifications were ordained in heaven. Your arrival on earth was preplanned, and God knows the exact number of your days. He has a plan for your life, and He leads you step by step. We aren’t random mutations of primordial sludge, but servants of a God who has established our purpose with grace before time began.
Today’s no random day. It’s a God-planned day for His devoted children.
God has a plan, and it should be our goal to live out that plan to the best of our knowledge and ability.
