#E1 - God's Plan for Me
Jer 29:11 MSG “I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.”
God has a plan for my life. He wants me to get involved with his mission of bringing heaven to earth. I can play a small part in God's amazing plan. I can find out God's plan for my life by asking him- reading the Bible, listening in prayer, and by talking with other Christians. God's plan for me is sometimes huge (and exciting and scary) and sometimes small and easy (for me to do because it's my friends and family I'm loving) and sometimes just takes making good and hard choices to do the right thing and obey God.
Eph 2:10 Father God creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.
The story of Esther reminds us that God has a special plan for each of us. Mordecai says to Esther “Who knows? Maybe you were made queen for just such a time as this.” When we pray and ask God, he can guide us and give us courage to play our part and make a difference in our world.
Proverbs 3:5-6 MSG Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all.
My choices really matter because I've got a part to play in God's plan.
I am a child that God loves. I matter to God. I can play a small part in God's amazing plan.
Jesus please show me who is on your heart today? Who do you want me to notice? Who do you want me to serve? Jesus, how can I be part of bringing heaven to earth today?
