For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11
Satan is our disaster-planner, but he’s not the writer of our future. God is. Best of all, God is into the details, right down to our cellular level.
Consider the word disaster. An “aster” is a star-shaped structure that forms during cell reproduction. It’s formation is crucial to sustain all future life. We know Satan “disses” or disrespects all things “life,” especially Jesus, the author of life.
That’s why God is the best big-picture planner. He planned the nails that pierced his hands. Nothing surprised him, not even when his followers were pierced with questions. Christ’s suffering was all part of God’s brilliant, wild and wacky love plan. Defeating death, Jesus turned his followers’ question marks into exclamation marks! God was and always is at least million light years ahead of the enemy’s best disaster-plans.
Christ’s messy, bloody story was a drama, thriller, horror, mystery, with the best twist of a love story in history. Most importantly, He wrote it for us.
“It is finished.” He rose so we can rise.
Death could not hold him down ~ because He’s a God with a plan. To give us a future and a hope!
How does it make you feel to know God’s the Master Planner?
