Proverbs 23:17 – 18 (KJV)
Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in the fear of the Lord all the day long. For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off.
Many building plans and great architectural designs are in existence today for mansions, skyscrapers, flats, etc.. One thing of note to consider among other considerations such as land ownership, funding, government laws, land consolidation, etc, which also have their own determining effect is that regardless of how good these plans may look on paper, they remain plans and may never translate into concrete structures unless their actual construction is done on-site by builders.
God’s plans for us are good, and in this hope, we joyfully anticipate its fulfillment (Jeremiah 29:11). One is that we become His spiritual house (1Corinthians 3:9-17, 1Peter 2:5, Ephesians 2:19-22). Another, is that we do not end up as unfulfilled destinies or wasted potentials (Philippians 1:6). Still, another is that we live godly lives in hopes of one day translating into glorious beings Christ appears (John 14:2-3, 1 John 3:2)
However, like any building plan on paper, God’s plans for us will remain just plans and will not automatically come to pass in our lives unless we cooperate with it and work it by faith till it becomes tangible. Our scriptural text tells us that it is our daily and continued fear of God, that is, our everyday worship through faith and obedience to His Word, that ensures that our lives accomplish His will and do not end up as uncompleted projects.
Therefore in fulfilling God’s perfect plan, we must first of all surrender our lives totally to Him (Romans 12:1-2), trust in Him as our firm foundation and then progressively build our lives by faith, using His precious promises (1Corinthians 3:11-13, 2Peter 1:3-4, Hebrews 11:1-3).
Go into today in the continued fear of the Lord and be sure that you’ll arrive at your expected end.
