Jeremiah 29:11-12 (NLT) For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray I will listen.
God has a good plan for your life! The only way you're going to find out what it is, is to set aside time to read your Bible and pray and live your life in line with what you read in your Bible.
Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seems right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
Two big reasons that good Christians have so many disasters in life are because they:
A) Don't take time to study their own Bible
2) Don't take time to separate themselves from the hustle and bustle of life to get quiet and pray and listen to the still small voice of the Holy Spirit in their heart.
James 1:22 But be ye doers of the Word, and not hears only, deceiving your own selves.
To follow the plan of God you must get it settled in your heart and thinking that God's Holy Written Word is the outline for His plan for every human being. And when you begin to do what God says in His Word to do and adjust your life to line up with His Written plan for man, you will begin to pick up in your spirit His specific plan for your life!
Some things the Bible says for all of us:
1) John 3:7 You must be born again.
2) 1 Corinthians 12:18 God sets every one of us in His body (the church) as it pleases Him. You must know who your pastor and church family are and faithfully attend and participate in its functions.
3) 1 Peter 4:8 Love shall cover a multitude of sins. Simply live by The Golden Rule, treat people how you want to be treated!
If you will begin to follow these basic Bible Principles you will be on your way to knowing and following God's Plan for your life!
