The Wonderful Good Plan for Me Part 2

Wednesday October 31, 2012

Pastor Syd reviewed last Wednesday’s message from Jer. 29:11-14 (God’s promise for our peace and plans to prosper us applies to us today; we must make a choice for God’s plan; God’s plan should be easy if we are yoked with Jesus; if we believe God’s plan for us, we’ll be excited about it, and it will work for us.) His plan gives us hope and hope produces joy. Faith produces peace. Hope expects.  Faith receives. Faith, hope, and love are the armor and the weapons. We need to put on the helmet of salvation to think God’s thoughts, not the enemy’s. Watch your words, because they carry spiritual significance. Allow yourself to express joy and praise in your worship and root out the spirit of pride. Use praise as a sword to open the door to the Father with power. Laugh at the devil and his plans. Remember: he is NOT the equal opposite of God. Don’t agree with his thoughts and feelings and fears. Death is our enemy, but we don’t need to be afraid of it.
