Thoughts: In Exodus chapter 2, we read of the beginning of life for one of the most influential men in the Bible. During Moses’ birth, all Israelite newborn boys were to be killed and thrown into the Nile River. Well, God had a bigger plan for Moses and designed it so that he would be placed in the river and discovered by a woman whose father would be the open door to the Israelites freedom. Just as God had a plan for Moses, He also has a plan for you and me. When our situations seem dim and we can’t seem to find our way, remember Jeremiah 29:11. His desire is to do us good and no harm. We can look to the author and finisher of our faith, Jesus Christ. Those things that seemed to have been destined for gloom and doom in our lives, He can turn them around and work it out for our good. What a mighty God we serve! Our setbacks can be used as setups for His greatness. Although we may not understand it at the moment, our setbacks and setups can be a bridge to bring us to our destiny in Him. What the devil meant for evil, God uses it for His glory. He has made a way of escape for us, releasing us into our destiny! Dear Jesus, help us not to look at situations the way they are, but to recognize the greater calling you have for us and to see our situations and circumstances as you see them. Help us to trust you with our lives and not what we think we see; you have a greater plan.
