Great Plans

Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. For our heart is glad in Him, because we trust in His holy name. (Psalm 33:20-21)

Ravi Zacharias tells a story of watching a father and son as they were weaving an Indian wedding garment known as a sari.

He describes a process. The father sits on a platform, while the son sits below, surrounded by spools of thread. At the command of his father, the son moves the shuttle back and forth through the loom.

As the father leads and the son follows, eventually a beautiful design begins to appear.

What is interesting to note is that the son worked below the father on the back side of the emerging design and had to wait to see the beauty of the end product. He had to trust completely in the father’s skill.

From the son’s perspective: messy.

From the father’s perspective: a plan.

God’s Word says in Jeremiah:

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. (Jeremiah 29:11)

God has great plans for you. Wait on him!

Have a great day and keep moving forward!
