10. He planned for the maturity of the times and the climax of the ages to unify all things and head them up and consummate them in Christ, both things in heaven and things on the earth.
11. In Him we also were made God’s heritage portion and we obtained an inheritance; for we had been fore-ordained (chosen and appointed beforehand) in accordance with His purpose, Who works out everything in agreement with the counsel and design of His own will.
12. So that we who first hoped in Christ – who first put our confidence in Him – have been destined and anointed to live for the praise of His glory! Amp.
For the Lord’s plan is wonderful and we are part of it, to work for the end to come and watch Him. He is our inspiration. When we see how awesome He is we just want to praise His glory as it says.
He will bring together heaven and earth and all that is in them together in unity. Everything will be One. He will fill everything with Himself and make them complete which is His glorious fullness. Everything we have been hoping for in Him we will see Him do.
He will be the Head of the Church and the Universe with everything under His feet. This is the mystery of God that is beginning to unfold. There is no stopping it. If we ignore His will in our life He will ignore us. We must allow Him first place and bow to His will.
If we allow His will, we will have glory, honor and heart peace. If not, we will have trials and anguish, Romans 2:6-10. We will be so very blessed, and our lives will be an expression of His glory. We will be so overwhelmed with His goodness that it will show in all that we are. That is living for the praise of His glory. Our hearts will be filled with Himself and will pour out praise!
And one cried to another and said, Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory (Isa 6:3)
We are to Praise His Glory like that!
