Prepared & Preplanned

What has God preplanned and prepared for you?  With that question I thought of Ephesians 2:10. It says, “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” Our good works have a set time.

In verse 40 the servant quoted Abraham’s words. Then he told them what he did. Verse 48 says he,  “…blessed the Lord…who had led me in the way of truth…” Laban and Bethuel said in verse 50, “…The  thing comes from the Lord…” 

When they told him he could take Rebekah, verse 52 says that he bowed to the earth and worshipped the Lord. He wanted to leave right away. His mission was accomplished thus far. They tried to delay him. Verse 56 says, “…Do not hinder me, since the Lord has prospered my way…”

Once the Lord opens the door, we need to go through without any hesitation. When the Lord opens the way, the enemy of our soul will throw up roadblocks. We need to keep our eyes on the Lord and move forward into His way.

Everything will be in place when the Lord’s set time has come for the good works He has preplanned and prepared for you. Not a minute late or early. Isaiah 55:11 says that His word will not return to Him void, but “…it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.”

Accomplish and prosper are God’s part. Our part is to trust, remain still, and keep following the Holy Spirit. The servant said that the Lord led him in the  way of truth. In John 14:17, the Holy Spirit is called the Spirit of truth.

John 1:14 says, “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” In John 17:4 Jesus said, “I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work…”

Hebrews 12:2 says, “Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith…” What He has begun in us, He will continue to lead us into the truth that will prepare us to finish well. When He formed us in our mother’s womb, all that we would do and be were placed into our spiritual DNA. Let us glorify Him with obedient hearts.
