"What I have said, that I will bring about;
what I have planned, that I will do."
(When God speaks forth His purposes and plans,
He Himself will bring them about.
Unlike the plans of man, the Lord's plans will come to pass,
and nothing will alter or cause them to be derailed,
not our disobedience, our failures, or our inadequacies.
The phrase "what I have planned" comes from Hebrew words
referring to being formed and fashioned in much the same way
a potter forms clay into a specific design.
The Lord carefully and meticulously fashions His plans
and just as carefully and meticulously molds us into His design.
Even though our lives are deeply flawed and imperfect,
the Lord declares to us today His plans in our lives are perfect.
He says He has plans to prosper us and to give us hope and a future.
He says He will be easily found by us.
He says His plans for us are to save us, and when He says He will save us,
He will save us completely, in all ways, in all circumstances, to the uttermost,.
He means nothing less, and nothing can change His plan.
We can depend on His declarations because He is trustworthy.
He can be trusted, and He will guide us into His perfect plan for us.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ's love,
