I was reading through Matthew 2 this morning about the birth of Jesus and it was amazing to see how God had everything mapped out! The Magi, the star in the east, the prophecies, the dreams and the moves! Does God have a plan for your life? The answer to the question is pretty obvious – most of us believe that God does in fact have a plan for our lives. But the “yes” answer is the easy part. What kind of plan? How much of a plan? Do I get a choice in the plan? These are all very important questions and help us to realize that while God has a plan for our lives, we still have responsibility!
Are you taking your responsibility seriously? Are you doing your part to discover and live in the blessing of God’s plan? It is one thing to know that God has a plan for our lives. It is another thing altogether to believe that God has a plan for our lives. To know and believe means that you are going to live life differently. To know and believe means that you want to make sure that you are doing your part to stay in step with God’s plan. To know and believe means that you will live life on purpose and for a purpose!
God does have a plan for your life and it is an amazing and beautiful thing! Take some time today to think about His plan and how you can walk in step with it! And then take your thinking one step forward by doing your part – whatever your part is that God has shown you!
