Planned and Purposeful
God meant for Jesus to go to the cross, Jesus meant to go. The cross did not thwart God's plan, it was the main part of it. It was not an easy thing for him to do but it had been planned form the beginning, Jesus said in Luke 22:42 “Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done.”
God's plan is perfect. The cross is part of it. The part that saved us and forgave all of our sins. God also has a plan for each of our lives and it is perfect. We only need to surrender it to him and he has promised to guide and protect us. When things don't seem to be going as you think God should plan it, know God is in control and at first some of the things that happen don't seem as if they could be for good. But God makes all things come to good in the end.
And one day he will bring this world, that men turned sinful, to good. It will be purged by fire and we will live in a new heaven and earth, a perfect one, all because of what Jesus did on the cross.
