Christmas and the Plan of God
Christmas time presents a lot of activity in this world and in the United States. You have certain family and work obligations and travel. It isn’t the same routine. As these different occupations fly at you, your eyes observing and mind appropriating, remember to live by faith and not by sight. The plan of the kingdom of Jesus Christ still marches on. Eternal souls still hang in the balance. God’s Word is still God’s Word and His will is still His will. A nice prayer is the one in Psalm 19:14, “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.” When there is a lot to see, we can tend to live by sight and not by faith, and without faith it is impossible to please God. Living by faith is living according to God’s Word – just believing Him, so loving Him and doing what He says. That still is God’s plan despite the flurry around you. It never stops being that, and these days at the end of the year are part of that life of faith. They can provide a unique opportunity of living by faith because you are out of your normal routine. You have some different people and different situations to apply the Word of God. This is being faithful to God. He will be faithful to you. He will sustain you and He will continue saving and sanctifying you. Set Him apart in your heart and be ready for Him.
