Matthew 25:34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
When we are given late notice of an upcoming event, we begin scrambling to put things together: we begin establishing contacts and tapping into the depths of our imagination. In fact, individuals become extremely resourceful and creative when pressed for time.
Jesus speaks about a kingdom in the Gospel today but what I would like to highlight is the timing of its establishment: ‘from the foundation of the world’. Before the world was, a plan was already in place for a kingdom which would be given out. That reveals another facet of God to us.
My dear, God isn’t now putting things in place concerning you, He is not currently in the process of fitting pieces together to see what works for you. Those plans have already been executed. What we await isn’t the creation of a blueprint, but a fulfilment of what that blueprint says.
Sweetheart, God sees too big a picture and has access such vast resources that He won’t be struggling to put things together on short notice. He is Almighty and that should mean something to you.
