Apparently, I wrote about intentionality back in July 2020, so I guess this is part two! 😉
In the beginning, God created everything: the heavens above and the earth below. Here’s what happened: At first the earth lacked shape and was totally empty, and a dark fog draped over the deep while God’s spirit-wind hovered over the surface of the empty waters. Then there was the voice of God.GENESIS 1:1-2 VOICE
Last week I had a very vivid dream ―like a movie!― where a group of kids discovered that their parents had made explicit choices to ensure that they all had a better future. This dream made sense in the way, that intentionality runs concurrently with love. If we care about someone, we will go the extra mile to give them the advantage. Other than understanding the dream from a practical perspective, the dream seemed bizarre and random.
Then my mind begin shifting to contemplate all the ways that God has showed and continues to show that same level of attentiveness in our lives. God designed the earth whilst simultaneously thinking about the plans that He had for us. Like creating the symbiotic relationship between plants and humans. Plants release the oxygen that we need for respiration and take in the carbon dioxide that we breathe out. Even the earth’s transitions from night to day and how our bodies naturally lay down night and rise in the morning due to our circadian rhythm. Who could have thought of a such an intricate systems?!
There are a lot of things happening in the world right now and uncertainty surrounding them. Some can read about the miracles that Jesus performed or how the Israelites were delivered from Egypt and argue, “These times are different.” Yet, whether David’s temptations were any more or less than the ones we face is irrelevant when we journey back to earth’s inception. When we look around at nature and ourselves, we can see how God was thinking about us in even the smallest details.
God makes no mistakes and is always intentional. It’s comforting to know that although we may not be able to understand, we can be confident that God already has a wonderful plan!
