Maynard's Musings

We have come to share in Christ if we hold firmly till the end the confidence we had at first.  
Hebrews 3:14

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning it's shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Hebrews 12:2

    In the Bible, Genesis is the first book of the scripture and Revelation is the last; the beginning and the end.  They were both written over a thousand years apart, one in Hebrew and the other in Greek.

   It is the beginning of the curse in Genesis and in Revelation the curse is declared "no more."  In Genesis, death begins and in Revelation there is no more death.  In Genesis, the tree of life is taken from man and is given back in Revelation.  In Genesis, God called the light into being.  In Revelation, God becomes the light.  In Genesis, God created the heavens and the earth.  In Revelation, He creates a new heaven and a new earth.  Everything that happened from Genesis to Revelation happened because of God's perfect plan.

   God's plan for you is no less perfect.  At times it is hard to see His plan when life appears to be falling apart, but when we trust God and stay patient, in the end it will all come home.  We trust Him with what we cannot see; knowing that His perfect work, His plan and purpose for our life will perfectly come together in the end.
