The revelation of God is whole and pulls our lives together.
The signposts of God are clear and point out the right road.
The life-maps of God are right, showing the way to joy.
The directions of God are plain and easy on the eyes.
God’s reputation is twenty-four-carat gold, with a lifetime guarantee. The decisions of God are accurate down to the nth degree.” ~King David

I need to get this in my heart and soul. God has his plan together for me. Now that is some very good news.
Here is the deal. God is God. God is in control. God sees the big picture from beginning to end. The totality of God’s plan for me pulls my whole life together. It is my job to let God play that out in my life. I struggle with this because I want to be in control. God will let me but that isn’t in my best interests.
God gives me sign posts to point me in the right direction. I want to know how to move forward. God is in a good mood and gives me sign posts pointing me in the right direction. Like Abraham, I may not know where I am going but God points the way.
God gives me a map to show me how to get from where I am today to where I need to go. In addition to the sign posts, God gives me a map. The Word of God and the sayings of Jesus are more than enough.
God’s plan is clear and straight forward. Jesus was able to nicely summarize the issues for me. “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” That is pretty clear and very straight forward. That is my to do list for today.
God has a sterling reputation with absolute guarantees. I can count on God. God has never failed me at all. Some days I don’t see what God is doing and I don’t get it. That is my problem that I must own.
When God makes a decision, I can count on it being a good one. God isn’t haphazard in what he wants for me. God’s goal me me is based on his infinite love. No one loves me like Jesus. No cares like the Holy Spirit. I’ve got the creator of the universe on my side. Now that is good news and a big deal.
