Daily devotional: God has specific plans and time tables

Scripture
Then the four angels who had been prepared for this hour and day and month and year were turned loose to kill one-third of all the people on earth.
Revelation 9:15 NLT

Observation
God sovereignly creates beings to accomplish His purposes and His plans at exactly the times He specifies. The best place to be is in close communion with Him and fully committed and submitted to Him so that He can use us to accomplish His plans instead of fighting against Him.

Also a note--people need to turn to Jesus while there is yet time! The terrors described in Revelation for those who do not bear the seal of God will be unbearable!

Application
Follow God and be fully submitted and committed to Him. Pray that He will use me to accomplish His plans.

Prayer
Lord, thank you for giving me a word even from today's reading. I submit fully to You. Here am I--send me! Use me for your plans and purposes. May I obediently follow You as I trust in You. Thank you for communing with me, taking care of me, and using me for your glory! I love you!
