You were deliberately planned to be filled with the beauty of love and joy and peace and purpose—filled with God Himself.
Your mercy is great above the heavens, and Your truth reaches to the clouds (Psalm 108:4, NKJV).
When have you observed the blazing glory of a tropical sunset
or the soft, silvery shimmer of moonlight on the ocean waves,
or a baby’s birth and first lusty cry,
or a bird weaving her nest, hatching and feeding her young
and wondered, who made it?
When we thoughtfully consider the world around us, we instinctively know our environment is not some haphazard cosmic accident but the handiwork of a Master Designer. The earth did not come about by the snap of some giant fingers but was deliberately planned and prepared in an orderly progression of events. Like Planet Earth around us, your life is not a haphazard cosmos, either. You were deliberately planned to be filled with the beauty of love and joy and peace and purpose—filled with God Himself.
