What wonder, privilege and assurance there is in knowing that God has a plan for our lives, and that God is intent to complete His work in us. David, meditating upon the all-seeing and all-knowing character of God, noted that God had fashioned his days, and wrote them in His book (Ps. 139:16). Ephesians reminds us that we are God’s workmanship created for the good works which He prepared for us (Eph. 2:10). To know these things is a great blessing, which also brings the challenge of being sure our lives are conducted firmly at the centre of God’s plans in accord with His will.
