Preemptive Salvation

Revelation 13:8 describes Jesus as the Lamb who was slain “from the foundation of the world.” The implications of this verse are astounding. Think about this, before the fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, in fact, before the garden or its first inhabitants even existed, God had already initiated a plan of salvation that would culminate with the cross. 
This means that the cross was not God’s “Plan B”, just a reactionary measure to counteract an unforeseen catastrophe. Redemption was His plan from the very beginning. When Adam and Eve partook of the forbidden fruit, God wasn’t surprised. Their failure had already been factored into His sovereign plan, and provision had already been made for redemption.

My friend, if you have missed the will of God, be encouraged by this thought: Before God called you, before you were saved, in fact, before you were even born, God knew exactly how your life would play out. Before you had made even one mistake, God took all your future failures into account, and in His infinite wisdom and love He preempted your blunders with a plan to turn your tragedy into a triumph in the end.

Lamentations 3:23 says that God’s mercies begin afresh each morning. Today is a new day and a fresh start. You can be confident that if you are still breathing, it is not too late for God to intervene and restore what the locust and cankerworm have eaten.

This is Daniel Kolenda
encouraging you to live before you die.
