Prayer Devotional: Day 266

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. – Ephesians 2:10 NIV

It’s hard to imagine what God does to prepare for anything in advance. He is God, so He can simply speak things into being, but He gives us free will to make our own choices.

He has already planned the good works that He would like us to do. We can choose to follow His plan or not.

God’s handiwork is impeccable, and I am reminded of that every time I observe nature. I passed through Arches National Park yesterday on the way home and I marveled at how perfectly God shaped the rocks, by wind no less.

When we plan, things don’t always work out. When God plans, all things work together for good. We are never disappointed when we follow God’s plans. Amen.
