Oh the Love That Drew Salvations Plan!

“…the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” Revelation 13:8

God knows no surprises. He has had no makeshift or stopgap plan. He knows everything from beginning to end and He is in control of everything from beginning to end. “…our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.{Psalm 115:3} His salvation plan is no exception. It was drawn up before the foundation of the world. The Son of God was delivered up to be slain by the “determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God”. {Acts 2:22-24}

God is not in the Heavens wringing His hands and drinking Maalox. Everything is going according to His plan! He “worketh all things after the counsel of his own will.” {Ephesians 1:11}

“Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:” {Isaiah 46:9,10}

The Word of God tells us that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” {Romans 8:28} Not some things but all things. Not just the pleasant things but all things. I am glad He is in control. I am glad He is bringing everything together for good in my life. I am glad for His “salvation plan” before the foundation of the world

As one writer said “…the real test of our faith in a sovereign God is how we act when we are “upset” and do not get our own way.” {The Sovereignty of God in Providence by John Reisinger}

Is your God in control of all things?

Oh, the love that drew salvation’s plan!
Oh, the grace that brought it down to man!
Oh, the mighty gulf that God did span at Calvary! – {At Calvary,William Newell}
