The Wonderful Good Plan for Me Part 1

Wednesday October 24, 2012

God’s plan for your life is a good one, one of peace and hope ( Jer. 29:11-14). If we pray to Him and seek Him, He will listen. Shalom is peace, perfect, prosperity, rest, safety, welfare, wholly well. You have to make a choice for life. Are the promises in the Old Testament for us today? YES! Gal. 3:13-14, 26-29, and 4:4 establish the truth that we are sons and heirs of God and that the blessing of Abraham has come to us through faith in Jesus Christ. What are some of those promises? Matt. 11:28-30 tells us that God gives us rest, His yoke is easy, and His burden is light, because we’re yoked with Him. Rom. 5:17 tells us that we will receive grace and the gift of righteousness to reign in life through Jesus Christ. Rom. 8:14-17 lets us know that we are God’s heirs. Rom. 8:31-38 says that God is for us and that nothing can separate us from His love. You’ll get excited and bold about the Word of God when it’s working for you. A quote from Keith Moore: “The plan of God is the glory of God prepared by the love of God especially for the children of God, me!” Our response is praise, joy, shouts of jubilation (Ps. 32:11; 35:27; 47:1; 100:1-4). Rely on His strength and His good plan for you.
