Have you ever watched a trail of ants, they seem to be on a mission and have a purpose? Maybe it’s the queen ant who has the plan and all the worker ants are just looking at the blueprint, but they are all in sync. They know what they are doing.
Sometimes if I am truly honest and look at my life, I don’t know what I am doing. I don’t know where I am heading. I am just doing day to day.
What is my purpose? Is it just to be a wife, a mother, working in my career? Is there a greater purpose with all that I do?
As Christians we know God is the Master planner. The One who has the blueprint and who invites us to be the “workers in the field”.
I may only know my tasks day by day, but I trust in the Chief Architect who has the Master Plan.
But also, as intelligent creatures, God wants us to seek Him, to know Him and so know His heart and mind and so have plans for our lives. As we grow in love with our God more and develop our relationship with The Father, Son and Spirit we have a desire to bring “our works” to Him and ask His Blessing and instruction for the final plans.
It’s like we are design students bringing our research work to the teacher who encourages us and critiques our work to make it better and shows us how to produce our best finished work down the track.
Don’t we naturally want to produce the best work we can, the best plans and hear from the teacher- “well done?” I do.
In doing these ‘best plans’ we bring honour to Our God and love our neighbour along the journey of life. And on top of that is the great feeling of satisfaction, of real purpose that makes a difference in my heart. I am fulfilled.
So be encouraged make plans, find your place in Gods bigger plan and you will truly find satisfaction.
PRAYER: Lord, here I am. This is me in all my imperfections and I need you today. If I am truly honest and look at my life, I don’t know what I am doing. I don’t know where I am heading. I am just doing day to day. Today I trust that you are the master architect with the master plan for my life and I commit my day and my plans to you. Amen.
