“A Wonderful Purpose” ( Isaiah 25: 1, NEB ) by Carley Evans

“O Lord, Thou are my God; I exalt Thee and praise Thy Name; for Thou accomplish a wonderful purpose, certain and sure, from of old.”

 

“[God] makes known His hidden purpose — such is His will and pleasure determined beforehand in Christ — to be put into effect when the time is ripe: namely, that the universe, all in heaven and earth, might be brought into a unity in Christ.” (Ephesians 1:9-10) “Through [Christ] God chooses to reconcile the whole universe to Himself, making peace through the shedding of His blood upon the cross — to reconcile all things, whether on earth or in heaven, through Him alone.” (Colossians 1:20)

 

“The Lord is to be trusted, and He fortifies you and guards you from the evil one.” (2 Thessalonians 3:3)

 

Jesus says, “Set your troubled hearts at rest. Trust in God always; trust also in Me. There are many dwelling places in My Father’s house; if it were not so I should have told you; for I Am going there on purpose to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I shall come again and receive you to Myself, so that where I Am you may be also; and My way there is known to you.” (John 14:1-5)

 

Then, Jesus says: “I Am the way; I Am the truth and I Am life; no one comes to the Father except by Me.” (John 14:6)
