Am I a part of God’s plan or is he a part of mine?
  • Genesis 1:1-19
  • Psalm 104: 1-2,5-6,10,12,24,35
  • Mark 6:53-56

From a formless, empty, darkness God brought everything to ‘being’. At the end of each day ‘God saw that it was good’. Genesis reveals that God created human beings in his image. What a beautiful revelation of God’s goodness. But Satan entered through deception and brought sin and separation. As I reflect on God’s goodness in creating me as a partner in his plan for creation, I am hit with the truth that often I am expecting God to be a part of my plan. I am not engaging nor discerning his plan. I am disturbed and angry when he does not fit into mine. Separation happens. Satan enters through lies, as he did at Eden. John 3:16 is my comfort. God sent his only Son to be my Savior. What I need to do, is to believe in him. Mark 6:54 says ‘As soon as they got out of the boat, people recognized Jesus.’ How did this happen? Jesus knew who he was and his purpose. He reflected divinity. Do I reflect Jesus who lives within me? Do others recognize Jesus in me? Am I focused on God’s purpose for me?

Prayer: Abba Father, may the Holy Spirit be a constant companion in leading me to the purpose for which I have been created. Amen.
