Ephesians 1:4-5

“…He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will…”

Take care to recognize the order of blessings mentioned here. First, the Creator God of all has selected us to be His own. Second, because of His ownership of us, He has labeled us, marked us and declared us to be holy, just as He is holy. Third, by His predetermined knowledge He has adopted us into His family. Finally, the fact that you are a Christian and bound for heaven is exactly what pleases Him. Think of it, God was delighted in eternity to look ahead to your future, seeing you in all of life’s difficulties and challenges, as He patiently waited until you came to the place where you cried out saying, “Lord Jesus, save me from my sin, from my destruction and from myself!”

In a sense, God waited for you to come to Him at a time that was pre-appointed. Our tomorrow may be in the future to us, but it isn’t to Him. He knows what every day has in store for us for He is the Alpha and Omega, knowing beginning from end. Therefore, you can take a deep breath and rest in the all-knowing Eternal God. True is the saying that states, “We may not know what tomorrow holds, but we know the One who holds tomorrow.”
