God's Perfect Plan

Have you ever said to yourself, “Things can’t possibly get any worse”? You aren’t alone. Even people in the Bible had those thoughts at one time or another. • Sarah thought she would never have a child, even though God had promised He would give her a child so He could bring about a nation that would bless the earth through Sarah and her husband, Abraham (Genesis 17:1-5, 15-16; 18:10-14, 18-19). • Moses didn’t think the Israelites would believe him when he told them God had sent him to free them from slavery (Exodus 3). • Jesus’ disciples feared for their lives when He was crucified (John 20:19). But, through all those situations, God knew what He was doing. • A year later, Sarah had Isaac—an ancestor of Jesus, the Savior of the world (Genesis 21:1-3; Matthew 1). • Even though Moses was afraid, God promised to be with him and to get the Israelites out of slavery (Exodus 3:12). And He was faithful to that promise: Israel was delivered from slavery and Moses was their God-led leader for many years (Exodus 19:1-6). • And, while the disciples were still hiding in fear, Jesus, who had risen from the grave, appeared to them and said, “Peace be with you” (John 20:19). Through it all, God is working His good kingdom purposes—to bring salvation from sin and death to all who put their trust in Him (Romans 8:28-30). Even when we face difficult situations, as Christians, our story isn’t over because we belong to Jesus, who died for our sins, rose from the grave, gave us the Holy Spirit, and is one day returning to dwell with His people forever and make all things new (Revelation 21:1-5). • Alexis Wohler • How was God working His good kingdom purposes through the people mentioned in today’s devotion? • If your faith is in Jesus, what are some of His promises you can rest in (Romans 8)? We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God, who are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 (CSB)
