10For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), [a]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]. AMP
We are Gods masterpiece. He made the earth, the trees, animals, angels but WE are his masterpiece. We are his work of art created in His image. Praise God! We are not lowly worms. We are created in the image of God and we are his masterpiece. He hangs our pictures on his walls. Wow! Praise God!
Many people live their lives based on what somebody else says about it. How many times have we got something we think we should do but because someone was a kill joy we didn’t do it? Haven’t we all done that a time or two? Well, guess what! God has a plan not only that but its already ready and He’s waiting for us to step into it.
No matter what we’ve done in our past. No matter what mistakes or bone headed decisions we’ve made it doesn’t change the fact that God has a plan. He has already decreed and established good works for us to do. He has already prepared paths ahead of time for us to take.
We think the devil just wants us to cuss, and lie and have angry outbursts. But No the real plan of Satan is to keep us from walking the paths that God has already prepared. He wants to stop us from fulfilling our destiny. He tried to stop Jesus and he will surely try to stop us.
Jeremiah 29:11 11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
God has a plan! Before we were ever born there was a plan. He knew us before we were ever born. It has been laid out for us. We just have to walk in it. Glory to God!!
He’s like a coach on the sidelines with the play book rooting us on. The plays are already worked out for us we just have to do them. He’s not waiting on us and then he’ll come up with something. He already has the plans!!
Gods plans are always beyond our own ability. If we can do it then we won’t depend on God to do it and we’ll take credit for it.
We need to step into our destiny, Gods divine plan for our lives. God has never failed anyone and he will not fail you.
17 One of the men in the crowd spoke up and said, “Teacher, I brought my son so you could heal him. He is possessed by an evil spirit that won’t let him talk. 18 And whenever this spirit seizes him, it throws him violently to the ground. Then he foams at the mouth and grinds his teeth and becomes rigid.[a] So I asked your disciples to cast out the evil spirit, but they couldn’t do it.” 19 Jesus said to them,[b] “You faithless people! How long must I be with you? How long must I put up with you? Bring the boy to me.” 20 So they brought the boy. But when the evil spirit saw Jesus, it threw the child into a violent convulsion, and he fell to the ground, writhing and foaming at the mouth. 21 “How long has this been happening?” Jesus asked the boy’s father. He replied, “Since he was a little boy. 22 The spirit often throws him into the fire or into water, trying to kill him. Have mercy on us and help us, if you can.” 23 “What do you mean, ‘If I can’?” Jesus asked. “Anything is possible if a person believes.” NLT
23Jesus said, “If? There are no ‘ifs’ among believers. Anything can happen.” Message Translation
IF can stand in the way of your destiny. IF should not be in the vocabulary of a believer. A believer believes that anything is possible with God. We need to get the IF out of our vocabulary and out of our mind. People wonder IF God will do this or do that. Get the IF out and stop limiting God for ALL things are possible to them that believe. Praise God!
Our destiny is not about other people. Our destiny is about us believing that God had a plan for our lives before we were ever born. I’m sure I’ll make mistakes along the way but I will be like Paul. I will keep my eyes on the prize. I will get up and keep running my race…the plan that God created. Anything can happen where God is concerned. Remove the IF it will keep you from your destiny. God has taken all the limits off. Why should we or allow others to limit God in our lives?
It takes obedience and commitment to fulfill your destiny. Abraham in faith was taking Isaac up the mountain to offer him to God. What he didn’t know was that Jehovah Jireh was coming up the other side with the ram. Hallelujah!! All things are possible with God.
We are a chosen people!
Ephesians 1:4-9 NLT 4 Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. 5 God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. 6 So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son.[a] 7 He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. 8 He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding. 9 God has now revealed to us his mysterious plan regarding Christ, a plan to fulfill his own good pleasure.
God loves us, chose us and adopted us in advance Because He WANTED TO AND IT GAVE HIM GREAT PLEASURE! Praise God!! AND we have an inheritance.. God has a plan!!
1 Peter 2:4-5, 9 NLT 4 You are coming to Christ, who is the living cornerstone of God’s temple. He was rejected by people, but he was chosen by God for great honor. 5 And you are living stones that God is building into his spiritual temple. What’s more, you are his holy priests.[a] Through the mediation of Jesus Christ, you offer spiritual sacrifices that please God. 9 But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests,[f] a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.
We are living stones and Holy priests!! Wow! Praise God!
We are a chosen people, royal priests, a holy Nation. Gods very own possession. Glory to God. He has a plan! We are precious to Him.
But Why are we a chosen people to show others the goodness of God. We are blessed to be a blessing and to show Gods goodness to others. Hallelujah!!!
Usually before you have a wedding you make plans and arrange everything beforehand so that on the wedding day there is not chaos or confusion. No one has to guess about what they are supposed to do everything is scripted out even the wedding vows. Everything is prearranged ahead of time. That is how God is with us. He has a plan that he’s arranged before hand for us to walk in. Good works that he has for us to do. We can do it. We are His children. His masterpiece, His very own possession. He chose us…We didn’t choose Him first. He loves us dearly and has a plan for our lives. We need to trust in Him and step into our destiny
