God Is Giving You Another Chance

‘…God has appointed another [future] for me…’ Genesis 4:25 NKJV

Satan’s plan was to infect Adam with the virus of sin before his first son was born; that way he could get all the rest of us. And it almost worked. Cain, Adam’s first son, murdered his brother Abel. But God wasn’t finished. ‘Adam knew his wife again, and she bore a son and named him Seth, For God has appointed another seed for me instead of Abel.’ For everything you’ve loved or lost, God has something else. For everything that’s been stolen from you, God has something else. Your ‘seed’ is your future, and God has another one in mind for you. The situation you are in right now is not the end of the story; God wants to write a new chapter. The devil knew God had a plan for you; that’s why he tried so hard to wipe you out. He doesn’t want you to live long enough to fulfil it. But the fact that you’re still here and able to read this says he failed, and that God’s not through with you! Notice the word ‘appointed’. There’s an appointment on God’s calendar with your name on it. ‘God has appointed another [future] for me.’ There’s something good just over the horizon-something for your life, your marriage, your family, your career, your ministry. God has an appointed task for you to accomplish, and appointed blessingsfor you to enjoy. He has called you with an ‘eternal purpose’ and He will bring it to pass.
