August 12

God, we know Your plan is to unite everything in Jesus.

“…making known to us the mystery of His will, according to His purpose, which He set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in Him, things in heaven and things on earth.”

(Eph. 1:7-9)

All things. Because You are God, You have the perfect plan and the absolute power to bring ALL things under the authority of Jesus.

We live in a broken world. Broken lives, broken families, broken systems…

But in Christ, You put things back together.

I bow before You, thankful for Your provision in Christ and Your plan for my broken life.  You have made known to us the mystery of Your will in Jesus—promising to bring all things together in Him and for Him.

Like the prophets of old, we struggle to understand what is to come. We can only peek over into Your purpose with anticipation.

We know that You have a plan, and You have the authority to work out that plan. This promise gives my soul incredible comfort and confidence.

Father, You have said that Messiah Jesus is centerpiece of Your plan. Today I bow before You Lord Jesus as the Lord of Lords and the soon and coming King!

Together with Your children I pray:

“Your Kingdom come! Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”
