God’s purpose..... The one that lasts!!
There is a verse in Proverbs that should cause us to think deep and hard about "our plans."
Isn't it amazing how often we set out to conquer things that potentially might NOT be the will of God. Wow, what a waste of time that would be.
Proverbs 19:21 says “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails."
Have you ever been on a journey in your car just to realize that for quite some time you've been going the wrong direction?
The loss of time. The wasted miles. The cost. Yet, you were "assured" your direction (your plan) was productive and on target.
How often it is that people blaze ahead considering lightly (or at all) the purposes of God. That HIS purpose will be accomplished.
Without a purpose, life is an experiment or a chaotic journey that results in frustration, disappointment and failure.
In absence of purpose, time has no meaning, energy has no reason and when we don't know our reason for existence, we are just wandering, wasting valuable time.
Without purpose, we can only exist. Thus to know our purpose is to know our significance, to know our significance is to know our direction, to know our direction is to know our destiny.
We must realize that our fulfillment in this life is dependent on our becoming and doing what we were born to be and do.
If you want to know your God-given purpose, you must know and be in fellowship with the one who made you.
When the Lord God created us, He gave each of us an instruction manual…..the Bible.
God’s purpose is more important than our plans and His purpose will precede our plan.
Let us seek to have our plans compatible with God's counsel.
