“We are made for larger ends than Earth can encompass. Oh, let us be true to our exalted destiny.”
~ Catherine Booth (Salvation Army co-founder)
Catherine Booth knew something about embracing an impossible plan and seeing it unfold before her eyes. She and her husband, William, founded the Salvation Army and watched it grow into an international, world-changing organization in their lifetime. It’s an organization that stood the test of time and continues to bless humanity generations later. Her words on the subject can be trusted.
So what does that have to do with you? God created you for an amazing adventure, most of which also seems improbable or even impossible to achieve.
Seems that way, but it’s not.
There is a plan. A destiny. A purpose that only you can fulfill on earth. In fact the plan is not just the final destination, it’s also planned down to the day. The hour. The minute. How do I know?
“You saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed.”
Psalm 139:16 (NLT)
This puts substance to the phrase “God is in the details.” Actually, God is in YOUR details. Every day was recorded in His book. Every moment of your life was laid out before a single day had passed. The plan for your life doesn’t just consist of the details of your earthly lifespan, either. The plan has “larger ends than Earth can encompass.” The plan has relevance beyond earth and beyond the time you have here.
Let’s make a decision today to cooperate with the marvelous plan God has for us, no matter how impossible it may look. Like Catherine Booth, let’s say, “…Oh, let us be true to our exalted destiny.”
