God Has a Plan for Every Life (Part 1)
God has a plan for every one of us. When we get saved we become “a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new” [2 Cor.5:17]. He has a plan suited to our personalities, talents, needs, potentialities, and environment. God has a plan to fit you.[Heb.12:1] We each have a different race to run, everyone has a different course. Paul was able to say “I have finished my course” [2Tim.4:7]. Your race is different from everyone else. God has a plan for you that is different than everyone else. [Acts 22:14] God wanted Paul to know his will. He had specific a plan for Paul. He has a specific plan for you, [Ps.32:8]. [Ps.37:23] God’s plan for you is very detailed, step by step, and one step at a time. [Isa.58:11] God’s plan is continuous. No vacations or days off, by you or God. [Ps.143:8-10] God wants us to seek out his will for us through prayer, look at verse 1.
It is possible to Miss God’s plan for your life because of our selfish and stubborn ways of doing our own planning and then asking god to bless it. [Jer.10:23]
