Advent Unfolding–Day 4





  Week 1 – Revelation

Day 4 – Blueprint

blueprint- a design plan, draw up,  a plan or model

In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps. Proverbs 16:9

IMG_2400Those who know me well, know I am a list person.  I love making lists, checking off lists, compiling lists. I thrive when I have a list to track my day – it is sort of a blueprint for my week, my day – a plan drawn up.   When I have a blueprint for my week, I can then see what needs to be plugged in for each day of the week.  I know that I have been wired this way by my creator , but I would be the first to admit that I am a “little” obsessive when it comes to my list and I also know that He likes to stretch me and has asked me this past year to leave my days open for Him to plan each day as it comes – Each TODAY a new canvas for Him to move in.  I can plan my course (the things that need to be plugged in, school schedules, doctors appointments, exercise, etc.) but He wants to establish, or direct my steps. When I let Him order my steps (my day), there is a freedom I feel in knowing that I have fulfilled what He has called me to do for that day.

From the beginning, God had his own blueprint – one that was told over a period of 1,000 years gods-blueprintand written several  hundred years before it was fulfilled.  This blueprint contained over three-hundred prophecies of the coming Messiah. To name just a few - he was the promised seed of Abraham through Isaac, he would be born in the family of the Tribe of Judah, to the family of Jesse, be the heir to the throne of David, born in Bethlehem of a virgin, That his name was to be Immanuel, God with Us – and for us he was born, to us he was given, he would be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. This blueprint designed by our Heavenly Father was His plan for us, to fulfill our destiny.

I don’t know about you, but I think I will stick with His plan.
