Masterpiece Made Known
“For the Lord God does nothing without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets” (Amos 3.7 ESV).
So many times we run desperately to God, exhausted from trying to guess what He is doing in our lives. We feel lost and confused, and we wonder why God is not being more clear about His plans for us. Yes, there is a point of trust and step of faith that all Christians must incorporate in their journey as Believers in Christ; however, God does not leave us empty handed and clueless. He has supplied us with His Word, with His Spirit and with His prophets. God has laid a foundation of His nature found in His responses and interactions with His people. There are principles rising up in every book of the Bible through the lives of biblical figures that can be applied to our lives personally. God wants to reveal His will to us. He wants us to find secure footing in His plans for our lives. We may not know every detail, but we should be aware of His movement in our day-to-day actives. We can read His Word every day. We can wait in the presence of the Holy Spirit, listening for His instruction. And we can seek the prophets/teachers/preachers of the Gospel for inspiration and direction. We are not alone in our race of faith. There are people who have gone before us who can encourage us, and there are people just starting their faith journey who need to hear words of encouragement from us. We can trust that God is a revealer of destiny. He wants us to claim the good purposes He has planned for us before time began.
“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago” (Ephesians 2.10 NLT).
