It has been said, ” If you want to make God laugh, just tell him your plans,” It is ok, and good to have dreams and goals and plans for the future, just do what the Bible says; “whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.”(James 4:14,15). Remember to always say “Lord willing”, after you say what your going to do.“Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.”(Psalms 37:4,5). The Lord put it in your heart to have dreams and desires, and he loves you and loves to help you fulfill them. He gives the very best to those that leave the choices up to him. “Who hath directed the Spirit of the Lord,or being his counsellor hath taught him?“ (Isaiah 40:13). “For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor? “(Romans 11:34).“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8,9). Most Churches have a pre-written program of the service and the sermon and a step by step pre-planned diagram of every thing to be said and done during the service. Can you imagine getting a blank program as you walk through the door, and the Pastor starts off by saying ” Today we are going to let the Lord and the Holy Spirit fill this brochure out.” It is sure a lot more fun and exciting falling into the hands of God and seeing what thrills and intoxications of the Spirit that he has in store for you. Jesus said, “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”( John 4:24). I wouldn’t advise you to say no, or never to God, or to tell him what you are going to do.The Lord may have some greater and bigger plans up his sleeve for you, more than you can ask or think. Don’t limit the Holy One of Israel ! “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.”(I Corinthians 2:9).The future is as bright as the promises of God.”But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.”(Proverbs 4:18). Have faith in God that he knows what is best for you and that he has the best plans in store for your future. Just make sure the paths that you choose are according to the Word and the leading of the Holy Ghost. Godly counsel always helps. The Lord often gives you different choices within his will just to see what you will do. It’s like the Bible says “Like as a father pitieth his children,so the Lord pitieth them that fear him.”(Psalm 103:13).Take one day at a time, Don’t worry about tomorrow.“Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”(Matthew 6:34).He has got the whole world in his hands. There is not one hair on your head that falls, or one sparrow that falls to the ground unless God allows it for a purpose.“Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.”(Matthew 10:29-31).The Lord has gotten me out of countless jams that I have gotten myself into, and he has worked things out for good, when I cried out to Jesus ! “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.“(Romans 8:28).
Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
