We’ve been camped out on Ephesians 1 for morning devotions at work. This phrase in bold jumped off the page at me on Friday:
In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will, so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory. (Ephesians 1:11-12 ESV)
Him = God!
ALL THINGS – including disability
God has a great purpose in disability. We may not be able to see any of God’s purposes now (though sometimes we get glimpses!); we can still confidently say that God reigns and he is good.
Ephesians has a magnificent beginning! And we haven’t even gotten to one of the sweetest statements in the Bible: having the eyes of your hearts enlightened. . . (Ephesians 1:18 ESV)
