Hope Fixed on Him

1 John 3:2-3 NASB

“Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.”

Isn’t it nice to know that we don’t need to have everything figured out in life? This verse is very comforting to me because, so much of the time, it can feel as if we have more questions than answers, but we still have to make important decisions. How good it is to now, that no matter what circumstances we face, God has already planned for them.

As scary as it can be, to stare down the unknown and stand your ground, we can always have the confidence that no matter what happens, God has already planned it out for us. We don’t need to know all the variables, because we know the important one. At the end of the day, we will be joining God in Heaven, worshiping and declaring his goodness.

Today, if decisions come flying at you, and you feel unprepared and stressed out, take a moment to remember what the end will be. Every step we take has already been planned by God. And in those times when we make a wrong turn, God is already re-routing you to get you back to where He wants you to be. Plus, there’s no way you could mess up His plan; you’re just not the powerful. So you can rest in knowing, that God knows what He is doing, and you’re gonna make it.
