His Plans not Ours

Jeremiah 29:11 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.

Many search for more. They want more Holy Spirit. They want more grace. More mercy. They ask for healing. They ask for God to intervene and do things for them. They want God to fulfill their desires and plans.

Jesus went to the cross for us. He bled and suffered and died to take away our debt with the Father for all the sin we ever did it ever would do.

He died to fulfill the age of law and usher in the age of grace. No longer would we ever be judged for our misdeeds. Jesus fulfilled all the promises. They are all there for us to grab hold and walk in them. His word tells us all the promises are yes and amen.

When we received Jesus as our Lord and savior we received Holy Spirit, were baptized in His fire and we became born again. The evidence that we are filled is our life. It is the fruit of the spirit evident in our daily walk. It is praying in the spirit as Paul did.

As we begin to allow Holy Spirit to guide us daily, we begin to see the work He has before us. His light shines forth as He goes before us.

It is no longer about our plans and our desires. It becomes about God's plans and purpose in our lives. It is about allowing Holy Spirit to demonstrate His love and power through us. Glory be to God.
