The Master's Plan, Part IX
HIS PURPOSE FOR OUR DESTINY
For by Him all things were created that are in Heaven and that are on the earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. Colossians 1:16
As the old song says, "He's got the whole world in His hands!" Everything that is created, He created it, the good, bad and the ugly of the universe can all be traced back to Him! Even the "Big Bang" is His as science plunders around trying to find the beginning, He is the beginning and the end and everything in between!
Man, although a speck of dust in the infinite seashore of God's plan thinks that he is really something, as he boasts of his worldly accomplishments, even in ministry, thinking God can't do without him. The ultimate plan of God for us is to know Him and to belong to Him in unrestrained devotion. We are His workmanship created for Him and Him alone to enjoy and to mold into whatever He wants.
He is the potter and we are the clay to be made into the image of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Remember in all of your earthly pursuits the ultimate plan for you is to be like Him, conformed to His image by the trials of life, so don't get to prideful with your abilities and spiritual gifts because in the end, the only thing that will matter is that He knew you!
"Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!' " Matthew 7:22,23
