The Upper Room Devotional 26th October 2022

God revealed his hidden design to us, which is according to his goodwill and the plan that he intended to accomplish through his Son. – Ephesians 1:9 (CEB)

One of my favorite pastimes is quilting, so a friend of mine gave me a jigsaw puzzle with quilts pictured on it. As I sorted and arranged the pieces, I found one piece that was so oddly shaped and of such a peculiar color that I was sure it was from another puzzle and had mistakenly been put into the box. I set it aside and worked diligently on the puzzle, only to find that there was a piece missing. To my surprise, the piece I had set aside fit perfectly and completed the lovely picture.

As I considered this, it made me think about God’s will for us. Just like the oddly shaped puzzle piece, we may feel like we don’t fit in with those around us or struggle to understand why God doesn’t change our current situation. But just as that piece fit perfectly into the puzzle, we fit perfectly into God’s plan. God sees the whole picture while we can see only our piece. Scripture tells us that God has a plan for us. It is up to us to remain faithful, knowing that our lives will fit perfectly into God’s picture.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear God, help us to remain faithful to you no matter how we see our circumstances. Thank you for your Son, who gives us hope. Amen.
