“The A Team” was a very popular television program in the 1980’s. One of the leading characters, Hannibal Smith used an expression repeatedly, “I love it when a plan comes together!” Weekly, they would be in very difficult situations, that for all practical purposes, it seemed there was no way out! Yet, because it was fiction, and we all like happy endings, an escape was made. Their group would form a plan; and they would succeed!
Real life is not so neat and tidy. Our plans do not all “come together.” To be honest, they very often “fall apart at the seams!” Don’t throw in the towel, yet. There is One who also “loves it when a plan comes together.” God planned for us to have an intimate relationship with him, even before creation. The sins of Adam and Eve did not derail God’s plan!
Thousands of years passed; but God still had His plan unfolding. At the birth of Jesus, the angels in glory were rejoicing! When man rejected Jesus as the Son of God, they crucified Him, assuming they could kill His plans. God knew His plan did not fail that day; in many ways it was only beginning! At Jesus resurrection God could smile at the heavenly host and say, “I love it when a plan comes together!” He has a unique plan for each of us; and day by day it is all coming together! (Jeremiah 29:11)
