God's Plan And Purpose For Your Life
We are going to begin a new lesson dealing with God's plan and purpose for your life. One of the worst things that can happen in people's lives is for them to live life without purpose. So, we are going to examine what God's Word says about His plan and purpose for our lives over the next few months.
God's ultimate plan for your life is to bring the culture of His Heavenly Kingdom here in the earth in partnership with His sons.
Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."
You must be born again to be a son of God and to be part of His Kingdom.
Colossians 1:13 "Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of His Dear Son:"
In order to be part of God's ultimate plan here in the earth, we must be born again. But, our salvation experience is just the beginning.That is part of the problem with many believers. If you are not coming from a Kingdom perspective, you will be stuck with believing that your salvation is the focus for your life. The problem with that is that God did not place us here in the earth just to be saved. He has a plan and purpose for each of our lives that includes the expansion of His Kingdom.
Part of God's plan for your life includes you bringing the culture of Heaven into your area or sphere of influence.
Matthew 6:10 AMP "Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven."
God's plan for you is that wherever you are and whatever you do, that you bring His culture or His way of doing things with you.
The last point for this lesson is the fact that God made you unique for His plan and purpose for your life.
Isaiah 43:7 AMP "Even everyone who is called by My name, whom I have created for My glory, whom I have formed, whom I have made."
Isaiah 49:1 AMP "Listen to me, O isles and coastlands, and hearken, you peoples from afar. The Lord has called me from the womb; from the body of my mother He has named my name."
Jeremiah 1:5 AMP "Before I formed you in the womb i knew [and] approved of you [as My chosen instrument], and before you were born I separated and set you apart, consecrating you; [and] I appointed you as a prophet to the nations."
Whatever the plan or calling God has for your life, He made you unique and specially equipped for whatever your assignment is. You are special and God put you here on purpose.
Next month, we will look at the life of Joseph and some principles that will help us as we navigate this journal of walking out God's plan and purpose for our lives. Until next month, be blessed.
