God’s plan is eternal for He himself is eternal God. His salvation plan is for eternal. Can you imagine that if God ever had set a certain time for everyone to repent? I would be lost. Thankful that He is so patient with us & waiting for everyone to repent and be saved.
God has planned us, His Church, to GO, SHARE the Gospel & DISPLY God’s wisdom to the world. Often we feel safe & comfy just being in the church, don’t want to step out of our comfort zone. Honestly, I feel safe for my kids to just be in church environment & Christian communities all the time so they won’t sin. But how do I know what is exactly in their hearts? But God know. Can I know what they will do before hand? no! But God can. He has their future in His hands & He is the one who plan their lives. I cannot control the future but He does.
What I am trying to say here is that keeping ourselves away from the world (we are still lhere, on earth!) is not gonna keep us holy and righteous. God himself with His grace who saved us from who we were before (Ephesians 2:11-12). God makes us holy. God makes us righteous. God makes us who we are in Christ. And he has a purpose when He call us , adopt us into His family, saved us. He has planned for us to go, share the Good News with the world, and display His wisdom & love to the world so that they may know who He is.
If we just be in our comfort zone all the time, then how these unsaved, unreached people will know who God is and what Jesus has done for them?
This one God spoke to me personally this morning. That I have the access, He has opened to door for me to enter His presence, why didn’t I go boldly to Him, instead I keep everything inside my heart? There are things I cannot share with others, just don’t know how to say it. I even do not know how to pray about it.
But here’s the truth for us to know that:
- Through Christ, I have the way to Go to the Father (John 14:1-14). That is absolute promise of God.
- God give me the Holy Spirit (John 14:15-30), the One who will pray foe us in our weakness according to the will of God (Romans 8:26-30). That is the work of the Holy Spirit in us, believers.
Don’t you just love how He KNOWS each of us so well and know exactly each of our need right now? Oh Yes He always answers you every time you seek Him,talk to Him and wait for His answer.
And…one more reminder for me and you….
So please don’t lose heart because of my trials here. I am suffering for you, so you should feel honored. (Ephesians 3:13)
Yes I often lose heart when I was in trials. God command me not to lose heart in the battle for He is with me and it is all for the benefit of His glory and others to come to know Him. Our sufferings and trials are for His glory to be made known. In our weakness, God is there and He reveals His power for the others to see that God is God, the sovereign One.
I cannot stand by myself in the trials, and for that I really need YOU to pray with me and for me, so I can stand in His promises! Would you be praying for me?(Re-post from Living My Given Life)
