You Will Have Traveled Hundreds Of Miles After Reading This

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

It may seem like nothing’s really happening where you are at this point in time. But that’s not really the case. Every second the earth is moving 18.5 miles in its journey. Every tick of the clock, you’re 18.5 miles away from where you were before the last tick. When you count to 10, you’re about 200 miles away from the place you were when you started counting.

It’s not just true for the earth; it’s true for all earthlings, including you and me. Every life is changing. Every soul is moving either towards God or away from God. Your life is heading somewhere. It’s meant to head for glory. That’s why the Lord says; “I know the plans I have for you, plans for Shalom, not for calamity.” God wants to bring your life to a good place. Since you’re going places anyway, make sure you’re always moving towards God and not away from Him. Don’t stay where you are, because you can’t. Move ahead in love, ahead in faith, ahead in righteous action, and ahead in all things godly, because in God, you’re going places.

Today’s Mission – Today, especially follow the leading of the Lord and move ahead in righteous action.

You were foreknown!

Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.

Romans 8:29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son,

Ephesians 1:4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love,

Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

These past few days, writing about the will of God has reminded me of the prophet Jeremiah, and how the Lord knew him – even before he was in his mother’s womb, and he was sanctified by God as a prophet to the nations. A similar foreknowledge and ordination of God belong to us who are under the New Covenant. God’s foreknowledge of His people is clearly stated in scripture. We were chosen in Him before the foundation of the world to be holy and blameless and created in Messiah Yeshua (Christ Jesus) unto good works which He foreordained that we walk in them. It is clear that a life of holiness and good works is an integral part of our destiny in salvation, a fundamental aspect of His original plan for each one of us.

This plan, instilled in us even before the foundation of the world, seems to ensure that good works will follow the believers in Yeshua. We could never work our way into heaven, our salvation is wholly an act of God – yet, just as Jeremiah’s calling was foreknown and foreordained by God, our ordination unto good works was too. Walking in good works is walking in a manner worthy of our calling, it is powerful evidence for the genuineness of our salvation, and it is walking in the will of God.

From the foundation of the world, according to God’s plan, you were created and ordained to live a sanctified life filled with good works. If you walk in His will for you, when your life is over, you may expect to hear these wonderful words: “Well done, thou good and faithful servant!”

Your family in the Lord with much agape love
