Summary: How we find God’s plan for our lives.
Ephesians 5:17 says: Werefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
Listen, We do not need to be vague,thoughtless,or foolish concerning God’s plan for our lives. We have to be wise and understanding of what God’s plan is for our lives. We need to grasp firmly what the plan of God is.
Psalms 127:1 says: Except the Lord build a house they labor in vain,that built it,except the Lord keep the city the watchman waketh in vain.
There are two area’s of God’s plan.
(1) "There is the known plan" - The known plan of God gives us understanding in the area of salvation,spirit,soul, and body. It gives us understanding concerning healing, prosperity,Holy Spirit, and eternal life. "This gives us the complete plan for living.
(2)"There is the unknown plan" - The unknown plan of God pertains to things which are not in the Word of God.
Listen: I cannot open the scripture and read - Thus says the Lord unto Randy,Go ye into the land of Arizona and teach my people the perfect plan for their lives, then ye must,on the 7th day return unto the land of Alabama. "Its not in the bible"
I was in prayer several months about going to that conference,who to leave in charge at my ministry and to have God’s perfect plan accomplished at both places.
You see there are a few things we need to know,God wants to save us,and God wants to heal us. And I mnow what God tells us in the pages of His will.The bible is what God left us,it is His will and it is His testament. "It is what He wants us to do!"
So how do we learn God’s plan for our lives? By studing the known will of God. "THE BIBLE"
Romans 12:1 declares: I beseech you therefore, bretheren,by the mercies of God,that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice,Holy,acceptable unto God which is your reasonable service.
Turn to Matthew 7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine,and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man,which built his house upon a rock:
(1) a wise man is one who does the sayings of the Lord Jesus.
(2) a wise man is one who does the Word of God.
(3) a wise man is one who builds his house on the Rock
Let me ask you this? On what is your plan being built?
Is your plan being built on the rock or is your plan being built on sand?
My wife and I built a home a few years back,after the foundation was poured the man told me he wanted to lay the blocks also,I said sure you can,this man had a fantastic resume for pouring foundatins and he said he could lay the block work too. About a week went by and one day after work I stopped by to check to see how it was going, they had about half the work done. The gentlemen told me they had to finsh some more work that they had started and they would lay some let it set up and they would be back to finish. When I walked up to the block work it seemed perfectly fine,but then something amazing happened, I leaned aganist the blocks and they started falling over, I thought to myself,O man they are sill wet,but they can’t be,they have been drying at least 2 days. As I went around the foundation kicking blocks over, and saying a few choice words "remember I was in the world at that time" I slowly started to figure out that there was really something not right about all this. So I went home got my wife and ask her when was the last time them men had been out there,she told me a few days. Come to find out they had put to much sand in the mortar. You see, to much sand in mortar will cause the blocks not to bond together and they will fall.
Matthew 7:25-27 shows us, our plan must be built on the rock,if it is not, it will fall.
Ephesians 2:19-20 declares: Now,therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners,but fellow citizens with the saints and of the house hold of God.(vs 20)and are built upon the foundation of the Apostles and the prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the Chief Cornerstone.
Jesus Christ must be our Chief Cornerstone in our plan. If He is not the foundation of our plan we will fall! "And can I tell you, A great fall it will be and very costly. This is so important, you must grasp the plan of God with your whole heart, "Not you head"
You must understand what God is saying,because He is speaking to you and me today. The time has come for us to make "adjustments",You must say to yourself whatever it takes I’am going to get into the perfect plan of God for my life. However, the plan of God doesn’t fall on you like rain drops out of the sky,it doesn’t come to you just because you go to chruch on sunday’s, because you pay your tithe,or because you pray in tongues. The plan of God comes to you because you, seek after it,because you hunger for it,you want it more than life itself. God’s Word says: Ask and it shall be given,seek and ye shall find,knock and it shall be open unto you.
