God New It Would Come To This. It's Ok. He has a plan.
Dec 24 – God’s Plan Revealed: Jesus
2:358 – God’s Plan Revealed: Jesus

#faithbites #faithjourney revealed

Merry Christmas Eve. They say God works in mysterious ways. I had a friend post something about God’s plan and not knowing what it brings. Heck, I’ve often said, I don’t know what it is. Then tonight, during our Christmas Eve service, I saw that he had revealed his plan. It is Jesus. God made a plan, told us about his plan, and then delivered on it.

The reason there is so much pain, agony, fear, and hatred, is we don’t follow it. We follow ourselves and sin. But it is never, no matter who you are or what you’ve done, too late for redemption.

Reflection

God’s plan is simple. Love Him, Love Each Other. We make it hard. Sometimes, we feel that some people are beyond redemption. We cloud our vision by looking at the world with human eyes rather than through God’s revealed plan. There are no hoops or magic acts to go through to be redeemed. Jesus wasn’t something that was made up just to convince us of God.

If we believe in God, then we believe his word is true. If his word is true, then Jesus was there in the beginning and present all through scripture. Jesus is God’s plan. There was no plan B after man messed up. God knew we would when he gave us free will, but he did it anyway. Then he knew he would send Jesus to atone for our sins. He did.

Now it is our turn. Do we live in his revealed plan or do we cover our eyes and give in to hate and temptation. For me, on this holiest of nights, I see a God made flesh in the form of a baby to save us all. I see his plan and coming true.

Challenge

As we celebrate Christmas, know that God wants the best for you. His plan has been revealed. We just need to listen and ask for guidance (prayer) then take what he tells us and act. Find one person or one thing where you can see that GOd’s plan is true and share it.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, thank you for sending your son, Jesus, to us this night over 2000 years ago. You revealed your plan, but we still don’t see it. Give us your eyes to see that you have been truthful in your plan and acted upon it as promised. Help us to grow so that we can see that everyone, no matter what they’ve done, can be redeemed through Christ. We love you and honor you and thank you for this magnificent gift. In your name, Amen.
