The mystery of His will

Ephesians 1:9-10 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 things on earth.

The one really liberating thing about following God is knowing that He can be trusted.  He’s had this master plan from before time even began and He’s working it out.  He set things in motion and to this day the stage we find ourselves on in life is still part of the story.

Along the way, God will reveal to us the mysteries of His will, but never too much and never at the wrong time.  We’re often so quick to question Him and demand to know what’s going on, but to be honest if we really knew it all we wouldn’t be able to handle it.  His ways are not our ways and His thoughts are not our thoughts (Isaiah 55:8).

When it all plays out, this grand plan of His, all things will come together as they must. The timing will be perfect and the outcome will be just as it should.  The momentary afflictions we face in this life will seem like nothing in comparison to the glory that will be revealed at that time (2 Corinthians 4:7).

Take heart, trust in the Father to bring things to completion. And remember, He loves you.
