And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.
When God put Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, He had a master plan for the earth and everything within it. And while sin distorted God’s perfect creation, in His mercy and grace He is still working His glorious plan…not only for all of the universe, but for you and for me.
Noah and his family are a great example of this truth. Even though the world was corrupt in sin and God decided to judge it, He spared Noah and his family. In fact, God had a specific plan for them as they floated in safety on the ark while God judged the earth.
Noah’s salvation reminds us that even where sin abounds, God’s plans remain intact because His grace abounds even more.
There were probably a few times that Noah wanted to jump ship and give up, but he remembered God’s promise and trusted God to finish the work that He had started on the earth. We should do the same and not become impatient or lose hope when it seems that God’s plan is being frustrated in our lives.
God has a perfect plan for you. Don’t be anxious or jump ship and try something else. Stay the course and allow God to fulfill His purpose in your life!
GOD HAS A PERFECT PURPOSE AND PLAN FOR YOU, SO BE PATIENT AS HE COMPLETES THAT PLAN.
