O Lord, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth. Isaiah 25:1 (KJV).

REFLECT:
Is anyone looking to establish a plan and purpose? What an obvious question to ask. Of course, the answer would be an emphatic yes! Every human being on the face of this planet, in their right senses, of course, has some kind of plan or purpose they are looking to fulfill and establish.

The whole essence of being human is that we are creatures of hope. Hope is what keeps us going and reaching for more. Hope is the machinery that keeps us alive. Once a person stops hoping that person is slowly winding down and ready to bow out of life’s arena.

Therefore, if we see ourselves looking to achieve great and greater things in life, we must work hard to keep our hopes alive. So how do we succeed in keeping our hopes alive?

The only answer is that we look for someone way bigger than ourselves. Someone who not only has the road map to some of the solutions we are looking for, but has all the answers, and can go beyond to resurrect dead dreams and create new ones if need be. We need someone who will stand as a Faithful and dependable Executor of the plans and purposes we have always dreamed about.

So, who is this someone? Our Bible verse for today gives us a direct answer. This person is God Almighty. In this Bible verse, we are told that God is the only one who can do wonderful things. He has a track record that proves His faithfulness and truth in successfully fulfilling and establishing every purpose, plan, and destiny which He created from the foundation of the world. Jeremiah 29:11; Numbers 23:19.

All of creation is proof and testimony to the fact of God’s established plan and purposes. For more insight on this please read Psalms 19.

Knowing this fact, we should be encouraged to turn to the only solution we need, God Almighty. He alone knows the plans and purposes He has forged for us, and He knows what it would take to succeed and be established in whatever plans we have been called to carry out.

To successfully work and function in our God-ordained plans and purposes we must make God our sole focus. Spend time to know who this God of wonder and truth is. Connect with Him through His Son Jesus, and learn about His character and wonderful works in His word. Develop a deep desire and hunger to know how He expresses Himself by getting acquainted with the Holy Spirit.

As we make it our sole desire to pursue after God, He makes it His sole desire to faithfully execute, firmly root, and establish us in the plans and purposes He has called us to walk in. HALLELUJAH!!
