God’s Amazing Plans for My Life

Twenty-nine years ago, the Lord saw me and formed me. I was not yet born.  But amazing enough,

he already knew everything about me! 

 

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
Before you were born I sanctified you;
I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” -Jeremiah 1:5

God knew us long before we were ever born. And had great plans for our lives! Plans that are good. To give us a future (Jeremiah 11:29)!   His plan may not be to give us great wealth, fortune and fame so that WE can look good.  But the plans God has for us are perfect!

When I feel alone or abandoned, I can say: God is with me!

He will never leave me nor forsake me (Hebrews 31:5). I don’t have to fear!  I don’t have to fret what people think of me or will do to me (Psalms 37:1)!  His angels are covering and protecting me!

We don’t have to feel condemned about our Pasts. 

“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus.” -Romans 8:1a   When we abide in Jesus, the Vine, and seek to please Him through our lives, our past sins are gone!  History!  Nada! Throw in the sea of forgetfulness never to return!

We are brand new creations in Christ.  So we can lift our heads up, rejoice in his daily provisions and move forward on to what he has in store next!

IF YOU ONLY KNEW WHAT GOD HAS IN STORE FOR YOUR LIFE!   You would indeed rejoice!! 

But God’s will above all:  He is “not willing that any should perish (in their sins) but that all should come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9

 You must be born again, receive Jesus as Lord of your life, in order to inherit eternal life with Him

TODAY CHOOSE LIFE!

Say this prayer after me,

Father in Heaven,

I come to you now.  Thank you for sending your Son to die for the world. 

I receive Jesus as Lord of my life. I believe that He died for my sins,

and then rose from the dead, and that I too will live forever with him.

Remove all condemnation of the past.  Set me free from all bondages

I can not be free of myself.  Right now, I am new!  I am born again!

And I will spend eternity with you in heaven! 

In Jesus’ Name!

If you prayed that prayer: Angels right now are having a celebration in heaven.  Find a congregation to belong to, study the Bible- the Holy Word of God and live in the freedom Christ has made you FREE!!

 

AMAZING GRACE!

I can hear the singer Chris Tomlin now sing the words:

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me. 

I once was lost but now I’m found, was blind but now I see.

Wow.

Ephesians 2:4, 7-8 says,

“But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us….That in the ages to come He might show the exceeding RICHES OF HIS GRACE in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God….”

OUT OF ALL the things people have given me and the awards people have presented to me. Or anything could EVER receive: the Grace of God surpasses them all!  We can see here that God is rich in three areas:  God is rich in Mercy.  God is rich in Love.  AND God is rich in Grace.

Money, Fame, THAT position on the job, cars, houses in Beverley Hills, and a yacht just won’t satisfy the longing in each person’s heart!

Don’t give me a Car!  Give me a Savior.

Don’t give me gold and expensive jewelry! Give me a Protector!

Don’t give me fame and all the publicity this world has to offer!  GIVE ME A REDEEMER!

— Do not give me things that take up a lot of space in my house, but doesn’t give an inch of satisfaction in my soul! —

The point is I was a Wretch. Sinner. Undone. Quite proud and Very selfish.  Thinking I was righteous on MY OWN acts and account.  But far from redeemed until I heard the good news: Jesus died, that I might live! Jesus took on my sin with his death, and because he arose from the dead, I too will live forever with him and all I must do is BELIEVE on him.

May be you were born Saved! Holy and literally an angel delivered from heaven.  BUT I WAS NOT!

I needed a Savior, I needed GRACE.  Amazing grace from God, to redeem my soul from Hell!

And to think that while I was still in sin, Jesus died for me! What a gift of GRACE!

—-Blessings.
