Two scriptures came to me yesterday – one from YouVersion, one from a Thomas Kinkade daily calendar. I love when God speaks from multiple, random places. These two verses inspired a thought. God has already worked it out. Think about that for a minute.
YouVersion had Isaiah 25:1, “Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you. I will praise your name, for you have accomplished wonders, plans formed long ago, with perfect faithfulness.” CSB
The calendar showed Ephesians 3:20-21, “Now unto Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask . . . Unto Him be glory.” KJV

God has formed plans long ago, which includes our lives. Notice He formed them to perfection. So, God is able to do exceedingly more than we ask because He has already accomplished the tasks: every relationship, every connection, all of the triumphs. This does not even account for being all powerful.
Do not worry so much if you can avoid it. What He has planned is already done.
Application for fathers: talk to your kids about any worry they have and assure them God has already figured out the solution.
