Follow God's Game Plan In Your Life

4 comments :
It's the first Sunday Service of 2011 and I decided to put an effort to setup a new blog site that will cover all His words and messages that I have learned and put a mark on my life which also serves as my inspiration and devotion.

(January 2, by Bro. Ferdie) - The sermon revolved to below passages:

Jeremiah 1:4-10
4) The word of the Lord came to me, saying 5) "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations." 6) "Ah, Sovereign Lord," I said, "I do not know how to speak: I am only a child." 7) But the Lord said to me, "Do not say, 'I am only a child.' You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. 8) Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you," declares the Lord. 9)Then the Lord reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, "Now, Ihave put my words in your mouth. 10) See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant."

Jeremiah 29:11

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".

Commentaries:

1. Discover and run God's plan. On Jeremiah 1:5, we can see from His words that He knows us from the very beginning and He has prepared His plans for us. He created us and that the moment we were formed inside the womb, He has all the gameplan to us. The ultimate purpose in life is to know God and enjoy God. The ultimate satisfaction in life is to discover God's plan for your life and doing it.
  • Seek and listen to God. (When you seek, you will find) - Based on James 1:5 "If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to allwithout finding fault, and it will be given to him". From these words, we can tell that God is waiting for us to ask for all the things that we need, ask Him and we should be ensured that He will give it to us, seek Him and you will find the answers to all of your questions.
  • When you seek God you will know what you need to know when you need to know it.
2. Trust and obey God's plan in your life. On Jeremiah 1:6-8, it shows there that we have doubts in our abilities and that sometimes we do not trust what our capabilities are. But we should trust and obey Him as He will lead us to the correct path and all the struggles and circumstances that we are facing, just believe that God has a plan for all of this and in time you will realize how good He is and will appreciate the importance of His love. You and God are a majority, you and God are a winning team. Just trust that He is always there to help us and that he is always at our side to guide and provide us the things we need.
3. Live up to God's plan today. In Jeremiah 1:9-10, just face all the challenges and be assured that all will be will with the power of His name, just follow his path. Consistently surrendering to His leadership.

Discover God's plans for your and live it one day at a time, uncovering the wonderful gifts one a a time...

Trusting and obeying God's plan means following God's plan even if we don't know what lies ahead of us.

God will reveal things to you bit by bit because he wants us to trust Him one day at a time.

wow...nice carlos :)

sarap isipin nuh, from the very beggining even before we were born, God already chose us to be in His team and because of that choice our life is no longer meaningless, or purposeless, because He has a game plan for each of us. All we need to do is follow---make Him our life's coach and He will make us a champion. :)
