So, to recap, God made a countless number of beautifully complex and unique people; and then He put them in a beautiful and complex universe; now what to do with them?
Well, He did that, too. We’ve already seen in Jeremiah 29:11 that He has plans to prosper us, to give us hope and a future. Ephesians 2:10 promises us, “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
So, God planned out our whole lives. He has plans for good works; plans for hope and prosperity.
Does your life ever feel incredibly complex? Whether you’re involved in a lot, or you feel you have a lot of internal or external battles? Or you feel like you can’t handle it all? God has designed our lives with an incredible complexity.
Again; as a writer, I’m not too bad at plots. But can I make the claim that even one of my characters has a complex life and plot? No. I really can’t. My characters usually manage a plot within their family, at school, and at youth group.
But He can say that every person He’s designed has a complex life and plot; He can say it about everyone He ever created.
Sin messed up our world; and our lives have ups and downs and swirls and twirls and a dip here and there: but He has made plans for good works, hope, and prosperity. Not only has He made the plans: He promised us.
Is your mind blown?
