“The king proclaims the Lord’s decree: “The Lord said to me, ‘You are my son. Today I have become your Father. Only ask, and I will give you the nations as your inheritance, the whole earth as your possession.”
Psalms 2:7-8 NLT
“Furthermore, because we are united with Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for he chose us in advance, and he makes everything work out according to his plan.”
Ephesians 1:11 NLT
Through the Spirit, did the Psalmist record a prophetic invitation to Jesus, Father to Son, making available to Him the salvation of the nations as His inheritance? There for the asking? I’m so glad that through His love and grace He gladly and willingly accepted the offer, bringing into fruition our inheritance and salvation, uniting us with Him as His brothers and sisters, all through His death at Calvary for our sins. But this wasn’t a spontaneous act, it was planned out in advance, with a people chosen “before the foundation of the world”. And regardless of circumstances, God makes it all happen, just as He planned it.
How are we feeling today? Do negative thoughts and emotions flow through us as we adapt to the constantly changing society and circumstances around us in our Covid communities? We have no need to be anxious though; we can rest in His presence. In, as Spurgeon once said, His “arms that change the world”. He loves us so much that whatever is before us He is going to fulfil His plan for each one of us. No crisis. No drama. Just His wonderful grace and love.
