God’s Plans


What is God doing in your life today? That sounds like a question a lot of preachers seem to ask in their sermons. Sometimes, I’ll admit, I brush off the notion by thinking the pastor is talking to someone else—not me. Someone with more influence.

But then, I read in my Bible notes that Paul sent his letter to the Ephesians by Tychicus to strengthen and encourage the churches in the area. I’m sure Mr. Tychicus had no idea of the widespread effect his efforts would have. He probably thought one church would be encouraged and benefited by Paul’s message. But it would mean more—much more.

Ephesians 3: 20 says, “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.”

2000 years later that letter encourages, teaches, and admonishes Christians all over the world. Don’t discount what God is doing through you. You never know what far-reaching effects it may have.

  1. I agree with your post. God uses us in ways we couldn’t even imagine. It has a ripple effect. A kind word can make a difference in someone else’s life.

    1. I think about the times when just one kind word from someone would help life the burden I’m carrying that day. Thank you for your comment.
