24 Jan Day 20 – The Good Life
The Good Life
By Travis Peters
I’ve got good news for you today! God has carved out a path for you to take in life. But not just any path, the path He’s prepared for you is the path to the good life! It’s just sitting there, waiting for you to lay hold of it, waiting for you to walk it out.
Ephesians 2:10 in the Amplified Bible says,
“For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].”
Isn’t that good news? That means you were recreated in Christ for a purpose! God has planned good works for you to do. He has an assignment, a mission, for you to carry out today. And here’s the best part, He has prepared a path for you to take, and when you take that path, you’ll live the GOOD LIFE! He’s pre-arranged it, He’s already set it up for you, it’s the path that is already blessed and it’s sitting there, made ready just for you!
When we get off our own path and over onto God’s path, when we do the good works He’s pre-arranged for us to do, that’s when things get good! God loves us so much that He would not only give us a purpose, but the path to the good life as well. Let’s get on that path today by speaking this out loud:
“God I thank You that I was recreated in Christ so that I could have a purpose here on earth. I commit today to do the good works You’ve laid out for me to do. I ask you now to put me on the path You’ve prepared ahead of time. I don’t want to be on my own path anymore, I want to be on Your path, the path to the good life. In Jesus Name Amen.”
