2 Kings 19:25 – “Have you not heard? Long ago I ordained it. In days of old I planned it; now I have brought it to pass.” (NIV 1978)
My Musings – When we think that the world is spinning out of control, we need to remember who has the ultimate control. Nothing takes Him by surprise. The “unexpected” cannot change what He ordained and planned in days of old. Perhaps what seems to be things out of control are things He planned and ordained long ago. Perhaps the time is growing short and the “labor pains” are increasing in intensity and frequency. We do not know the day or hour (only the Father knows), but we can know when the time “is near, right at the door.” “I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.” (Matthew 24:34, NIV 1978) Are we the generation that will see all these things? Maybe. Long ago He ordained the return of His Son. In days of old He planned it. He will most certainly bring it to pass.
My Advice – Watch for it (see Matthew Chapter 24). But more importantly, be ready for it. Are you ready?
