The 89th day – Something I know for sure now…
In love, he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will. — Ephesians 1:5
I love today’s verse, it is powerful and marvellous. It somehow reminds me of my childhood dreams. When I was little, I had many dreams. For example, I dreamt to be a successful woman who have my own brand and company, I also dreamt to be a wonderful teacher for thousands of poor students, and more, I dreamt to be an eagle flying high and freely in the sky… I don’t know what I will become when I grow up, but I never stop wondering about it.
Having read Ephesians 1:5, I know something FOR SURE, that is: I AM PREDESTINED TO BE GOD’S DAUGHTER, A PRINCESS IN HIS KINGDOM. God planned this adoption in LOVE with PLEASURE and JOY before I was even born JUST THE WAY I AM. So are you! It is breathtaking when I think about this fact. What an amazing father God is!
How I feel now just as the great evangelist Billy Graham has once described “I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS, BUT I KNOW WHO HOLDS THE FUTURE!
Just want to share with you a beautiful song by Brian Doerksen called: “Just as I am”
God loves who you are not what you are!
