“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1, NIV).
In the midst of life’s struggles and the moments when uncertainty clouds any glimpse of hope, we must come back to the beginning of it all.
When the earth was “formless and empty,” God decided to take action and use His creativity to form the universe that came to be. The beauty of this realization comes when we realize that in this creation, God made man to have life to be a part of His master plan.
What this means for each one of us is that every moment of our lives is within the sovereignty of God.
So when we come to the place where we are tired and exhausted with the worries and trials of this life and the seemingly endless new stresses that arise, we must remember that God knew us before we were in our mother’s womb, that He had a plan for us long before our existence was even known.
And that should be the greatest comfort to us, as that means no struggle or trial we face is too much for us to face, especially with the power of God to back us up. No matter where you are in your journey, do not lose faith in God. Even if you do not fully understand the plan of God for your life, don’t lose faith in the God who sent His only Son to die on the cross for your sins and give you a chance to be redeemed from your sinful ways.
Let us never get so lost and worried that we lose sight of or forget to remember the God who created us with a very unique purpose as part of His master plan.
“It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone.”
-Ephesians 1:11-12, The Message
