“Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure.” (Isaiah 46:9-10, KJV)
“Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.” (Ecclesiastes 7:8, KJV)
The Bible speaks of many beginnings. There’s the beginning of kingdoms, the beginning of strength, the beginning of months and the beginning of the year; the beginning of revenge, the beginning of the watch, the beginning of natural harvests, as well as many spiritual harvests; the beginning of places to dwell, beginning of reigns, beginning of wisdom, beginning of knowledge, beginning of ways, and the beginning of strife; there’s the beginning of words, beginning of supplications, and the beginning of the Word of the Lord; the beginning of sorrows, the beginning of the sin of sons, and the beginning of the sins of daughters; the beginning of confidence, beginning of days, beginning of the world, and the beginning of the creation by God; the beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ and the beginning of miracles.
Heaven’s assignments begin despite unpredictability at their genesis. God sets in motion. He joins people to designs honed by His wisdom, with a specific conclusion (goal) in mind. From His divine perspective, the end result is very predictable: God distinguishes “the end from the beginning” and “the time of sacrifice from the time of glory.”
Prayerfully offer your life to the Lord and declare agreement with His plan: Lord, I consecrate my life today, a new beginning… with purpose and according to divine vision… mercy for mercy, integrity for integrity, and purity for purity; I declare a beginning to some things and the end of others… beginning to end… building.
