“I sure hope that I’m doing what God wants me to do with my life.”
This is not how we are supposed to live. It is sad to think the majority of people will live out their lives with no assurance that they have done what God called them to do.
There are some who know what God has called them to do but have never pursued that plan. They know that God has planned something much greater for their lives but never pursue it. Some feel disqualified and some either talk themselves out of God’s plan or they let others talk them out of it.
When we are walking in the plan of God our lives will have meaning. We will be driven to get up in the mornings to accomplish that purpose.
God has a plan for our lives. The Holy Spirit will reveal this to us if we will take the time to spend in fellowship with Him through prayer and meditation in the Word of God.
There are people waiting for us. They need the anointing and gifts God has placed within us. For some this may mean full time ministers but for others of us it may mean pursuing the career God has called us to walk in.
Walking in the plan of God allows us to wake in the mornings with a purpose. God has a plan for every single person alive. No one has ever been born that this was an accident and every human who has ever lived has had a divine plan and purpose.
God knew we were going to live. He has a plan in His book that was written before we were even conceived! Every talent and gift we will need to accomplish it was place in us before our birth.
God’s plan for our lives is much better than our measly plans. Some people draw back because they believe He will send them somewhere that will make them miserable.
Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
The desires of our hearts will be found in the plan of God. He will never send us to a place that will make us miserable.
As we pursue God in prayer and His Word He will put His desires in our hearts. Our selfish desires and plans will surrender to His and this will open the door the fulfilled life that so many are crying out for.
I once heard a minister talk about struggling with the plan of God because He was afraid that would mean going to Africa. When he finally found the plan it did not entail him going but if it had, God would have placed a love for Africa in his heart.
God is not going to lead us to places that are going to make us miserable. As our hearts come into alignment with Him we will find ourselves in places that will absolutely fulfill us.
His will is what each one of us was created for. Our disposition, personality, and talents were all placed within us for the sole purpose of fulfilling His plan. Outside of it we may find success in the eyes of the world but only find emptiness within.
As we discover His plan it will become evident that He has been working to bring us to it all of our lives. I look back at past experiences and can see His guiding hand in places where it was not recognized by myself. You will find the same in your life.
God made each of us for one specific purpose. Our only chance of reaching full potential will be to find what He created us for.
We are going to spend time examining the keys that will unlock His plan. Our journey will be unsuccessful though if we do not first get rid of fatalistic thinking that everything is going to work out regardless of what we do.
The first step into the plan of God comes with our recognition that He has a plan. It is up to us whether we will pursue it or not.
It may surprise you that God wants you to discover His plan more than you want to. He is more than willing to reveal it to you. There are things that you can do to find your plan and we will be spending the rest of this series discussing them.
