Daily Word from the Lord for December 30, 2016: Encouragement in this late hour

Ephesians 1:11 In Him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of Him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of His will.

Ecclesiastes 3:11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end. And yes, the end draws very nigh :)

It is by God's divine purpose that power and potential intersect and meet. It is a mystery that I think is worth discussing. First things first, You need to know that the God you serve is a strategic God. He is the God of absolute purpose, and He wants you to know that you will have so much more purpose in the Millennial Reign of Christ, then what you have now!! Our God is a totally awesome God and He is a God who has a strategy set in place for these end times. According to Ephesians 1:11, He works all things after the counsel of His own will!!

Nothing just happens by accident. Creation was not arbitrary. There are no cosmic blunders or mishaps. The God of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob is the same God who created YOU and is the same God who brought order to chaos, form to the formless, and purpose to nothingness. You may feel like you have no hope these last days, but your future in the New Jerusalem on a renewed earth will have tons of purpose!! Remind yourself, you were created by God the Father for a purpose. Nothing He made was created by accident - it was all sculpted with great skill and precision.

It was according to God's preordained purpose and divine design that He brought you into the world - and ultimately saved your soul! It was not your distress signal that brought God into your life. It was God who brought the distress signal that made you cry out after Him!!!!!
Think about it. God is not just responding to your cry. He actually put the cry deep down inside you. He has put eternity into your heart (Ecclesiastes 3:11). He designed you in such a way that only He could satisfy the deep void inside your heart (Psalm 42:7). In fact, the deep that calls unto deep was placed inside you by God Himself. He made it possible for you to even have a deep that could cry out to the deep of Himself. 
God is not responding to you seeking Him. He put the seek down in you. This didn't just happen. You didn't just happen. God has unique purpose and an essential role for you to play very soon after He sends His Son back to rapture up His faithful followers! 

So in this very late hour we are living in, let us look up for truly our redemption is drawing very nigh. As Paul quotes it in the 4th chapter of Thessalonians, let us comfort one another with these words that our Lord & Savior Yeshua is coming back very soon. Shalom.
