Verse of the Day: Isaiah 46:10
“Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things which have not been done, Saying, ‘My purpose will be established, And I will accomplish all My good pleasure’;” – Isaiah 46:10
This verse should bring us all comfort. Why you ask? Because God knows all things; past, present and future. God loves us and wants the best for us. Moreover, His best for us cannot be thwarted because His purpose has already been established and thus His good for us will happen.
This is important because He cannot be surprised. His love and goodness are not based on what we have done, because He knew everything about us before we were created. He loves everyone, but only some return that love and He knew who those were before they were in their mother’s womb.
So, when you think that God has changed His mind about anything, this is an impossibility. In this I take much comfort. God told me a long time ago to prepare for what He had planned for me. I have not been perfect, but I also know He has not taken back His command to prepare. This brings much peace and contentment to me. I pray it does the same for you in your walk.
