God the "Great Scheduler"

Our family memory verse for today (Feb 1, 2013) is 2 Timothy 1:9. This just happens to be my favorite verse concerning ministry and God’s call on my life.
Call, Purpose, Grace. It is truly incredible to see how that, in Christ Jesus, EVERYTHING was already PRE-Planned and PRE-Provided for by God before the world began. He had me in mind before He even created Adam and Eve. Not only did He have me in mind, but He had a Call, a Purpose, and ALSO a package of Grace (with my name on it) which is abundantly sufficient for me to fully and faithfully fulfill that Purpose and obey that Call. How awesome is that! And then He wants to reward us for being faithful (Rev 2:10)?!? No wonder Revelation 4:10-11 shows that those rewarded in heaven “cast their crowns before the throne.”
God the Great Scheduler! I truly appreciate people, like my wife, who have the ability to plan things out ahead of time on a calendar. Some people have whole years of their life all scheduled out in advance! But think how awesome God is! He has had all of our lives scheduled out in His Heavenly “Day-Planner” COMPLETELY in Christ Jesus before we were ever born – and His calendar for each of us not only contains the PLAN, the CALL, and the PURPOSE; but also the perfect supply of GRACE for each moment!
Oh, how wonderful it is to be a child of God – knowing that I am “called according to His purpose” (Rom 8:28) – knowing Him who first knew me! Knowing Him “whom I have believed” and being fully “persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him” (2 Tim 1:12). Knowing that – in spite of how things may seem – today’s agenda inscribed in God’s Planner really is going to be A-Okay!
