For You have worked wonders, Plans formed long ago, with perfect faithfulness. (Isaiah 25:1 NASB)
He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him (Ephesians 1:9 NASB)
Everything that happens to us may not be good, it may not make sense. We each have issues from our past or we take issue with what God has given us in our present. That’s just life. It’s not pretty, it’s not fun, it can trip us in our faith. Seems dreary and maybe a little hopeless. But there’s a reason to hold on….
The Lord can take the ugly and with the kind intention of His will use it to invite us to come under His wing, near His heart. The ugly of life is no surprise to Him. He watched it from afar and made plans to change an aim to separate us from Him and make us angry at Him to work wonders with His kind intention with perfect faithfulness. So when the effects of the ugly hit we can bow before Him and ask Him if we may come near. He’ll say My arms are open and my heart feels your pain. I have a place in my heart especially for you
