God’s Plan for You!

Encouraging Word

      

You will notice from creation that God is very orderly, organized and has a plan. In Jeremiah 29:11-13, God mentions to Jeremiah the plan He has established. God says, “For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.” A plan is defined as a method of action or procedure; design or blue print; a definite purpose. As Christ-followers we are to seek God’s plan (Proverbs 16:9) and follow God’s path (Proverbs 3:6).

God’s plan is personal (Jeremiah 1:5). God created us; He knows us; and He has a plan with our name on it.

God’s plan has purpose (Jeremiah 29:11).  His plan is to bless us and give us a future and hope. Our responsibility is “to get plugged into God’s plan (Jeremiah 29:12-13).” We are to call on the Lord; pray to Him; and seek and discover His way.

God’s plan for us begins with salvation (John 3:16). Salvation involves a new life (II Cor 5:17); a fulfilled life (John 10:10); and eternal life (I John 5:11-13). Following salvation, we must learn to be Spirit-led. Galatians 5:18 says we are to be led by the Holy Spirit. Ephesians 5:18 says we are to be filled with the Spirit. As we learn to follow God’s leading, we are called to be His witness (Acts 1:8); and to be His representative (II Cor 5:20).

God has a plan for you!  Let me encourage you to seek God’s plan and submit to it.
