Psalm 57: 2 ” I cry out to God Most High, to God, who fulfills His purpose for me.”

If I told you that God has a wonderful plan for your life, would you agree, or would you refuse to believe He could use what you see as only worthless and empty.  I would then point you to the Book of Hosea.  God told the prophet Hosea to marry, but not just any woman, God told him to take a faithless prostitute by the name of Gomer.  Now to add a extraordinary element to this story (that only God can do), her name Gomer is derived from the Hebrew word for fulfills -Gamar – which is used here in this verse.  Unbeknownst to Hosea or Gomer, God was using their rocky marriage as an illustration of His dealings and love towards the faithless nation of Israel.  In other words, God used the prostitute Gomer to fulfill His plan and purpose for all of Israel.  God has a wonderful plan for your life and He will fulfill and accomplish His perfect plan and purpose in it.
