"For he performeth the thing that is appointed for me.."
The plan of God extends to every detail in my life. There are several important things that can be said of it:
1. The plan is perfect. Everything God does is perfect. It may not appear to me at times to be perfect but it is, because it will ultimately lead to the greater glory of God.
2. The plan is exhaustive. It includes everything. It is worked out in a situation where everything is under the control of God. It extends to the smallest and most casual things. 'The very hairs of your head are all numbered.' (Matthew 10:30).
3. The plan is for my ultimate good. God alone knows what is going to happen in advance because He has purposed it all. Every detail is fixed before I was born. God hides it from me until it happens. I discover it day by day as the plan unfolds. This is the unfolding of His secret will for my life.
