“For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us]”. Ephesians 2:10, Amplified
You would be disappointed if you went on a cruise to Hawaii, but there was no food prepared to eat, or a cabin to sleep? You would look around and say yes the ship is wonderful, the views are awesome, the sunshine and beaches are amazing, but I do not have anything to eat, nor do I have a cabin to live in. What about me?
God didn’t make all of these wonderful things in the earth that you see with your eyes daily and leave you out? He didn’t make so many great people you see with gifts and abilities, but leave you out. No. There is an awesome life, awesome winning of lives to Jesus, awesome victories, awesome works, awesome power, awesome wisdom, awesome blessings, great restoration waiting for you in Christ Jesus! You’ve been specially made to live a good life. It is good life found only in Christ Jesus.
It doesn’t matter what you’ve been through, you still have a life that is already prepared, prearranged, ordained for you in Christ Jesus. Like a meal already prepared when you come home, God has prepared a good life for you in His Son.
Prayer: Father, I am so thankful that You prepared a good life for me. I receive Your Word and You purpose for me. I receive Your plan for me. Help me to move forward in the awesome things, even Your mighty restoration. Help me to move forward into what was ordained for me before the foundation of the world-a good life. I won’t settle for anything less. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
