God’s Decrees

11 In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, 12 in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory.

Ephesians 1:11-12

Let us think today of the decrees of God. The word decree means an “order” that has the force of law. As such, God orders all things that come to pass and His plan never fails.

The Lord has a plan for history and He has a plan for you. And whatever God wills ultimately comes to pass. He chooses, predestines, and works out His calling for every believer and every detail of this universe.

God’s decrees do not remove us from the consequences of our freewill actions. Yet, somehow and in some way, the decrees of the almighty are worked out through the voluntary actions of His creatures. He works all things together for His glory and our ultimate good (Romans 8:28-30)

There is much about God’s decrees that we will never comprehend. We can trust in Him nonetheless. God is immutable, good and holy. Be uplifted Christian friend, God has not forgotten you. Trust Him and His plan for your life.
