“’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.’”
– Jeremiah 29:11
God has an abundant life, and a great future planned for you. His plan is to take care of you, not to abandon you. God says in Revelation 22:13, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.” Nothing in your life starts without the Alpha knowing about it and nothing in your life ends without the consent of the Omega.
God is the entrance to your life – nothing can enter without His knowledge.
Sometimes we are so preoccupied with doing life our way that we lose God’s plan for our lives. We do the Christian walk religiously and lose our God-given purpose. Are you living according to the design God has for your life?
In Genesis 3:9, God called the man and said to him “Where are you?” Many Christians find themselves in a similar position to Adam. Called by the Name of God, going to church regularly, but not rightly positioned. In the Garden of Eden, God set out a good plan for Adam and Eve. The Omega had already made a way for this plan to be accomplished, but then satan happened, just like he happens to every child of God. He comes to confuse you about God’s plan for your life.
The enemy told Eve, “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” If Eve only understood God’s plan, she was already Godly, created in the image and likeness of God Himself. God is calling His children into divine alignment. Your job is not to design or develop the plan, but to implement the plan. Philippians 1:6 says, “And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Jesus returns.”
