Sometimes leaving plans unrevealed, confidential, and hidden from our knowledge is the very thing we need in order to grow in Christlikeness. It stretches our faith, produces endurance, encourages us to submit our weaknesses to the Lord and rely on his strength.
I get it. You have big dreams, you have plenty of items on your “bucket list”, and your planner is filled with all the goals just waiting to be completed. I’m right there with you – I want to accomplish great things in my life. I want to leave a legacy worth remembering. I want to use my life to positively impact many others.
But the greatest treasure on all of earth and in heaven is Jesus Christ. No purpose is greater, no calling higher, no legacy worth more than knowing Christ and desiring him above all else. Nothing else will satisfy, nothing else sustains, none other has the salvation power we all so desperately need. We have full and complete access to the Lord because of Jesus, only Jesus!
