In the middle of chaos, we need to still believe and understand Gods purpose and plan for our lives. Let’s learn how, by breaking the seal and unrolling the scroll that has your destiny written on it. It’s in Gods Chamber of Scrolls, where the book of your days can be found. It will take a breaking of the seal and opening of the scroll to see what His plan for your life and the life of the church is. According to Psa. 139:16, our days are written in Gods book, about us, before they have even come to pass. His book of our days, is His scroll of our days. So how does Gods scroll reveal His Word, His will, His plan for our life. It first will take a pressing into His presence. This is done in worship. As we press into worship, at Gods Throne, it is Jesus, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, who is worthy and able to break the seal and open the scroll of your life (Rev. 5:5). It’s here that a new song is sung (Rev. 5:9-10). When Christ breaks the seal, who we really are in Him, gets revealed. It’s then that we find and fulfill our true identity.
Gods plan for your life is already written and finished. The word reveals in Eph. 2:10, that we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. In Heb. 12:2, we find Jesus is the author and finisher of your faith book. The scroll holds all your unseen plans as it unfolds a scene at a time. It doesn’t allow you to jump ahead and see what hasn’t yet been revealed. But the part you do see indicates what lies ahead and leads directly to what is yet to be revealed. The key for all of us is to live in the present, enjoy the fullness of each day. As we daily fulfill the words of our scroll, we live in His perfect will for our lives.
No matter how much chaos and turmoil we live in, we always need to remember Jer. 29:11, “that God knows the plans for our lives, plans to prosper us and not harm us, plans to give us a future and a hope.”
Question: Have you ever truly moved into worship and felt His presence start to break the seal of your scroll? Are you willing now?
Key Thought: We should never forget that God has a purpose and plan for our lives. It’s our responsibility to discover it, as we move into worship and seek His presence. It’s Christ who not only authored your book but reveals what’s in it as He breaks the seal.
