God has a plan for your life no matter the season. God created each of us with a unique purpose and a perfect plan for our lives. God gives each of us special gifts and talents that lead us toward certain inclinations in life.
Let us be encouraged to live a life worthy of the calling we have received. How do I start to live out God’s plan for my life? Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowances for each other’s faults because of your love. Grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ to mature as Christians.
“Before I formed you in the belly I knew you; and before you came forth out of the womb I sanctified you, and I ordained you a prophet to the nations” (Jer. 1:5).
“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well” (Psalm 139:14.)
What are you thinking? Can you see God in your Life? Can others see the God in you?
The challenge is to present our lives as living sacrifices, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. Also, we must not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of our minds, that we may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. (Rom. 12:1-2.)
But whoever God calls, He also prepares, develops and empowers.
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. (Rom. 8:28-29.)
Be courageous and do not allow fears to stop you from full filling God’s plan for your life.
Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, He it is that doth go with thee; He will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Be strong and courageous; don’t be terrified or afraid of them. For it is the LORD your God who goes with you; He will not leave you or forsake you (Deut. 31:6).
God has an Individual Life Plan (ILP) for your life. Allow your steps to be ordered by the Lord because the Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives (Psalm 37:23).
How do we accept God’s Plan for our lives? We must trust in God with everything — the heart, mind and the essence of our souls. Because we know that the just should live by faith. Talk to God about everything in life and all our ways He should be acknowledged, so our paths maybe directed by him. Also, do not be a know-it-all type of person (lol.) Give the respect to God that HIS plans for ours lives are better than what we got going on or can even think or imagine.
God is so much more than awesome and the plans He has for us is to bless us beyond what words can express. Have you ever thought about how God kept you? But God being the Loving Father already made provisions for our lives. Go God Go!!!
