Are You Following God's Plan?

June 6, 2014|9:15 am

 God loves you and He has a plan for your life. You are a wonderful creation made by God and you have a unique purpose to fulfill in this world. Ephesians 2:10 (AMP) says that as Christians, "we are God's [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live]."

It's so exciting to know we are each created with a purpose and God has a good life that He has prepared in advance for us to live. But it's important to understand that we have an enemy, Satan, who wants to keep us from having the life Jesus died to give us. Satan has a plan for us, too, and his plan is destruction and death. John 10:10 (AMP) says the enemy "comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows)."

The good news is we have everything we need through Christ to overcome the enemy. We just have to know who we are in Christ, believe that we have His authority, and know how to release the power God has given us.
