River Revelations:

God Has A Plan

Jeremiah 29:11  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 hope and a future.

If you ever doubt God has a plan, just walk through a field of wild flowers, smell a rose, listen to the birds sing, and hold a new born baby in your arms. Truly God has a plan, His earth fills all of our senses.

Our job is to get with the plan.  To stop looking at all the negativity, and begin to speak the possibilities that God is in control and has gifts, anointings, and talents available for us to change our part of the world.  We are not living where we are just to take up space, we are here because God placed us here, and we have something good to offer.  A God given idea, a God given work, or a God given blessing.

Don’t give up if you feel you are a square peg trying to fit into that round hole, you are.  So, don’t let what others believe, or think change what God has called you to do.  You are a light in the darkness, a beacon on a hill, and a life saver to something or someone.  It is your prayers that keep evil at bay, God honors our requests, loves to help us in times of danger, and covers us in the Blood of Jesus.

How do we get into God’s plan?  Through prayer and praise.  Enter into His gates with Thanksgiving and into His courts with Praise. That is the effectual door He has opened for us and we must enter it His way.  We cannot look to the ways of men, or the plans and pageantry of religious rituals, we must have a deep abiding relationship with the One who died for us, and now sits at the right hand of God to intercede for us. Yes, even now Jesus is working on our behalf for eternity. 

Through much adversity we enter into our place with faith believing that if the Lord called us, He will prosper and give us great success.  Most of the time we feel we are in a battle –stressed and often defeated.  Perhaps that is because we enter the battle with the wrong attitudes, the wrong mindset, and the wrong weapons.  To win we must surrender all to God, live opposite to the world around us.  Look at things that are defiled and see them changed by an all-powerful Father that wants only what is good for His people.  He has no desire to destroy mankind, He gave His son to redeem us.  We have to change our thoughts to His thoughts, and our ways to His ways.  The one way to do this is to spend more time with Him, then we do with the things of the world.  Everyday should begin with asking “Lord, what do You want me to do today.” We all have a list of what we want, it’s time to find out His agenda, and just do it. 

Philippians 4:8 NKJV Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. 

What a privilege we have to be part of God’s plan, to have the direction and guidance by Holy Spirit to do the will of God.  It is awesome that God allows us just one simple part in someone’s life being changed, a sinner being saved, a sick person being healed, or just one act of kindness that can change a person’s heart for eternity. Let’s tune out the noise of this world, and listen with our heart to what God is asking us to do today.  We will never be the same, and we will never have any regrets no matter what the cost.

O, heavenly Father we pour out or praise upon you today.  We give you thanks and honor You today in every way.  May our praise pour out upon You like a waterfall-- refreshing, washing, bathing You in our love.  You are the Rock of our lives, the hope of our future, and the expectation of eternity in our hearts. O, Lord hear our cries, help our case, judge us justly and bring us into a deeper, higher, wider relationship with You.  Take our hearts and wash us in the washing of Your Word, we need to hear Your voice and feel Your Presence.  You are all we need. AMEN
