Ephesians 1:4a What comfort is there? Any hope of joy?

Ephesians 1:4a “Even as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world”

So, was God sitting at the lunch table when He decided, “Hey, I’m going to create a world!”

For me, I’ve always been told that it’s bad to work on an empty stomach. At least now I know why I’m always hungry. And Noah, I wouldn’t have been worried about collecting two of all the animals. No, I say, forget the animals, save the pizza and the pasta. And the plagues in Egypt, not hail, I would’ve sent meatballs. forget the boils, I would’ve sent berries. No, its a bad idea to work on an empty stomach.

So, I say let’s create the world AFTER lunch, a spaghetti and meatballs lunch! Okay, roll up my sleeves, I’ll be done by dinner. Oh wait, I forgot. I need to select the people first. How in the world am I going to do that? I have trouble planning my dinner, let alone the next ten thousand years.

What a comfort to know that it wasn’t me who created the world.

What a comfort to know that God chose us before the creation of the world.

What a comfort to know that God created a perfect plan for each and every one of us. A plan that included adopting us.

Knowing that God has always wanted me always fills me with joy and I want you to know that joy too.

Ephesians 1:4a “Even as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world”
