God's Plan for You

God’s Plan for You


"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future" (Jeremiah 29:11).


There was a movie out this summer called "The Bucket List". It was about older men who made a list of all the things they wanted to do before they died and how they went about doing them. It made me think that maybe as Christians, we too should have a bucket list. This doesn't include a trip to Tahiti, which would be nice. It doesn't include sky diving or scuba diving or bungee jumping. I believe our bucket list must start with God first. It is fine to have goals for the future because without them we can flounder in our lives and have no purpose, but our goals should be what God wants for us.
As we see from the verse above God does have a plan for each of us. Plans to use us in amazing ways, if we let Him. That is the tricky part. It is very easy to do as we please and leave God out of it, but true happiness and peace in your soul can only occur when you follow God's will for your life. We all have a future that is totally in God's hands and can be as exciting and adventurous as sky diving. He will take you places where you have to grow as a person spiritually.
He may also make you face personal issues that you need to face and fix in order to be a better witness. Look at each challenge as a way for God to mold you and learn from it. Ask Him to show you how you need to change to be a better Christian, and you won't believe the exciting revelations that will come your way.
This week pray and ask God what your specific bucket list should be for Him. Then see what a wonderful adventure God has in store for you.
Dear God,
Help us to pray and believe that your plans for us are good. That you want us to grow as Christians in order to serve you better. We anxiously await each opportunity you give us to serve you. Help us to be willing, no matter the challenge, to step up and do what you have planned for us to do.
In Jesus' name,
Amen


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
