Anglican Devotional 7 June 2024: God Has A Plan For Your Life

The Daily Fountain Devotional of the Church Of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) 7 June 2024 – God Has A Plan For Your Life

TOPIC: God Has A Plan For Your Life

READ: Genesis 2: 1-14 (NKJV)

  1. Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished.
  2. And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done.
  3. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.
  4. This [is] the history of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,
  5. before any plant of the field was in the earth and before any herb of the field had grown. For the LORD God had not caused it to rain on the earth, and [there was] no man to till the ground;
  6. but a mist went up from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground.
  7. And the LORD God formed man [of] the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.
  8. The LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed.
  9. And out of the ground the LORD God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life [was] also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
  10. Now a river went out of Eden to water the garden, and from there it parted and became four riverheads.
  11. The name of the first [is] Pishon; it [is] the one which skirts the whole land of Havilah, where [there is] gold.
  12. And the gold of that land [is] good. Bdellium and the onyx stone [are] there.
  13. The name of the second river [is] Gihon; it [is] the one which goes around the whole land of Cush.
  14. The name of the third river [is] Hiddekel; it [is] the one which goes toward the east of Assyria. The fourth river [is] the Euphrates.


From our text today, we read about God’s wonderful plan for man. The Bible says “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed” (verses 7&8). God did not create man to suffer but to enjoy His enormous creation; He put the man and the woman whom He made in the prepared garden and made provisions for their comfort.

Beloved, be assured this day that the Lord has a good plan for your life regardless of what the situation is today. He says “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end” (Jeremiah 29:11).

There is a future glory for you. Your unpleasant experiences are indications that the enemy does not want you to reach your location of glory (Romans 8:18), so do not allow the counsels of the devil to thrive in your heart. God has made great provisions for your future; you need not to worry but believe and move on. You will smile at last. God has a plan for your life. Congratulations!

PRAYER: Father, I agree with Your plan for my life, in Jesus’ mighty name. Amen!
