I Make Known the End from the Beginning
I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say: My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please. From the east I summon a bird of prey; from a far-off land, a man to fulfill my purpose. What I have said, that will I bring about; what I have planned, that will I do” (Isaiah 46:10,11 NIV).
There is no other in this entire world, earth or heaven, who knows the end from the beginning other than God Himself. He knows where the world is heading to and where you are headed to. And He alone knows how your path may serve His purpose in this world. Therefore listen to Him for He alone can tell you the end from the beginning.
Do not be found at cross purposes with God’s plan. For you cannot oppose God. He will do all that pleases Him; and His purpose alone will stand. The best thing for you to do is to ask God to show you the purpose of your life; and then align yourself to it. For God has a plan. And you can be a part of it to fulfill His purpose.
It is interesting to note that to fulfill His purpose and do all that He has planned, God is here summoning a man. Note that God still does His work through individuals. But you can trust God because He knows what you are supposed to do to fulfill His plan. The best thing that you can do is to do your part, thus fulfill His purpose for you and leave the big plan to God Himself. He will bring together many individual contributions to fulfill His grand plan; for God knows the end from the beginning.
You may not know how what you are asked to do is going to work out in His grand design and plan. Many give up God’s work because of attempting to know what good their contribution is doing to God’s cause. It is discouraging because it is impossible to know these things. God alone knows the end from the beginning. And you have to be humble enough to keep on doing that task that God has assigned you. Trust Him for He knows the end from the beginning; for it is His plan. But one day God might reveal the purpose that was fulfilled through you.
