Everything that God does, He does systematically and intentionally. Even though Israel was enduring the pain of exile and punishment, God’s plans for them had not stopped.
Often we think that because we have missed the mark or made bad decisions that God has changed His plans for our lives. This couldn’t be further from the truth! God’s plans do not change for our lives because His plans for us are a part of His perfect will!
God told Israel that He had plans for her. God has plans for us too! You and I can never realize these plans until we stop looking back and start looking forward. God has done all the work and all He wants us to do is follow the plan. Like a builder who follows the architect’s plans so too God wants us to follow His plans so that we will build a lasting structure that brings glory to Him!
