The Holy Spirit’s Work Within

16 06 2010

In the eternities of time past, a vast, complex plan for mankind unfolded on the inside of God. In His infinite wisdom, He left nothing out as He looked down through the ages. He passed through generation after  generation, planning every intricate detail of every life that would live on the face of the earth.

God’s desire was to recover as many as possible from Satan’s rebellious camp and to gather unto Himself a people He could call His family.

Somewhere in the midst of this divine planning session, long before the eons of time began, God came across your name! Then He formulated a perfect plan just for you that is unlike any other plan for any other person who has ever been born. Imagine — God the Father looked out across the great void of space and time and saw the moment in time when you would live on this earth. Then He decided precisely how that moment should be filled!

We Must Choose His Plan

God conceived a wonderful plan for every one of us. In His plan, we were predestined to become His sons and daughters at the Cross. But one potential obstacle stands between us and God’s perfectly conceived purposes: Using the free will God has given us, we must choose to walk in the plan He has ordained for our lives.

God looks for a way to approach each of us in order to present His personal plan for our lives. He begins with the preaching of the Cross that encourages us to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. If we accept Jesus, we take our first step into the plan God predestined for us before the foundations of the world. But if we reject Him, then like so many before us, we will live and die without ever taking that first step — salvation — into the divine purpose for our existence.

Once when I was ministering in India, I looked out at the crowd of thousands before me and marveled that God could have a specific plan for every individual in that vast multitude.

The truth is, God formulated a perfect plan for every single person born since Adam. He only waits for each person to find out what that plan is and then to choose to walk in it.

Jesus talked about His plan of eternal life for mankind in Matthew 7:13,14 “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and fewthere be that find it”

Jesus’ words indicate that the majority of people end their lives with one final journey into a godless eternity without Him. A person can live and die and go to hell without knowing Jesus or fulfilling God’s plan for his life. However, that doesn’t change the fact that God had a perfect plan of redemption and purpose for that person; he just never discovered it.

But, praise God, you don’t have to be one of that number! If you have found the Cross and made Jesus your personal Savior, nothing can stop you from discovering the rest of God’s plan for your life.

All you have to do is choose to obey Him.
