Firstly, let us recognise that God told us in Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
We must look at God’s plan for the world and realise that although we continue to be people that rebel against God and struggle with sin, the salvation in Christ secures our eternal place in heaven. Jesus will return to earth to complete the restoration of His Father people and creation. But until then, our purpose is to continue to tell people about Jesus both verbally and visually by the way we live our lives. God’s love is life-saving, kind, everlasting merciful, and compassionate. Through Christ, the power of the Holy Spirit lives in us, and His love flows through us.
God also has a personal plan for your life. There are times that we will ask what does God’s plan Look Like for Me? Well, we are all moving parts of God’s kingdom, bringing glory to Him through all we do. When we function in God’s plan, we are having a personal conversation. God is faithful to lead us when we ask Him for direction. God’s plan for our lives is rooted in working hard with the gifts and talents He’s given us to meet the needs in our community and around the world.
It is through Jesus Christ that we are equipped to do God’s will. God plan for our lives is accomplished, not by what we can do, but on the back of Jesus’s sacrifice. May He work in us what is pleasing to him, reflects passive obedience to lay down our agenda for Him. We are made to crave God’s presence and glorify His name. He calls us to seek peace in our everyday lives. The ‘Bible’ verses below remind us we are also created to depend on God.
James 1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your selves. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be, given him.
