GRAND DESIGN

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Matt 1:1-5

The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.2 Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren;

KJV

Portions of the bible like this used to be the most unpleasant and boring for me to read. I didn’t even understand what they were doing in the bible.This blessed morning, I was thinking of starting to read the book of Matthew when I was encountered again with these text: ‘and Abraham Begat Isaac, Isaac begat, begat…’ just as I was about to start reading in a rush to pass through the ‘boring’ portion, I was struck with this though; I noticed these people mentioned in the text were normal everyday human beings living and trying to make ends meet day by day. In the midst of all; the good, bad, God was using them to fulfill a grand purpose that would shake the whole of eternity. It all started with Abraham who decided to trust and worship God even when there seemed to be no tangible motivation. He received a promise and God guarded His word through several generations to fulfill it. Many of those people in the text probably didn’t know that the peculiarities of their life’s encounter would ultimately work out for the fulfillment of God’s grand purpose. Many of the events in their lives that seemed like coincidences ultimately turned out to be for the fulfillment of God’s purpose-a grand design from before the foundations of the earth.

I don’t know what you are going through in your life right now, but I want you to know that there is absolutely nothing you go through that is a coincidence. It is only with us that there seem to be coincidences; it is not the case with God. If you are a man who is trusting God like Abraham did, then I want you to know that every detail in your life will end up fulfilling a grand design that will leave you with an expected, happy end.

Go into today remembering that God loves you and He wants you to fulfill your destiny more than you want to fulfill it- this is the truth.

Prayer: Thank you father for this day. Thank you Lord because I know everything is turning around for my good, in Jesus name I pray. Amen
