God has something in mind. He is deeply and personally committed to restoring humanity. Restoring you. He had a specific man or woman in mind when He made you. By bringing you back to himself through the work of Jesus Christ, he has established a relationship with you. And now, what He is up to is restoring you. He does that by shaping your life along the same lines as the life of His Son. By shaping you into the image of Jesus. You can be confident of this. It’s a given. Whatever else might be going on in your life, God always has His eye on your transformation.
