God Has a Plan for You

Romans 8:28 – 29a – “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son. (NIV) 

Do we realize that God has a plan for us?  If so, are we doing all that we can to live out that plan, or are we trying to create our own destiny?  God has given us the freedom to make our own decisions, but He wants us to choose what’s best.  It’s not always easy knowing whether we are following God’s desires for us or our own, so it’s important to ask ourselves the following: Am I living for the present or living for eternity?  Life is so short and eternity is forever.  Also, am I driven so that all of my earthly wants can be fulfilled or do I live as Christ has instructed me? 

Are a few years of fame, power and wealth more important than living forever in the presence of God and Christ?  There is nothing wrong with having fame, power and wealth for many times famous people can set examples and give tremendous Christian testimonies.  However, we must still search our hearts on a deeper level and determine if  we received these as gifts from God or our own burning desire to succeed at any cost?

1 Corinthians 2:9 — However, as it is written: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him. (NIV)

There are two questions I want to ask when I get to heaven:  How much more could I have done or how much better could I have been had I truly surrendered complete control to Christ and trusted the Holy Spirit’s guidance?
