For the last few months, God has been taking me on a very, very, very slow study of the book of Acts. Painfully slow, from my perspective. I was wondering why? Then it all came together.
A few weeks ago God redirected my summer plans for the church to emphasize the Holy Spirit. How to gain wisdom, how to experience deliverance, how to use the Gifts of the Spirit in everyday life. How to connect, grow and serve with and through the Holy Spirit.
Then it occurred to me why God was taking me through this intense study of Acts. Watching how the Holy Spirit worked in the early church, seeing how the Apostles interacted with the Holy Spirit, and discovering how the Holy Spirit led the new church into existence speaks to us today.
God brings His plans together. His plan to prosper us, not to harm us, to give us a hope and a future. (Jer 29:11) His plan to provide us with purpose and reason for being. His plan to empower us and use us to make a significant difference for the Kingdom of God in peoples lives.
What kind of plan is coming together for you? You might say, "I don't know?" Well, now would be a good time to ask God what it is He has in mind for your life. Don't go through life guessing or wandering aimlessly. You are here for a reason. God's reason. Discover what it is and pursue it with all of your heart.
PRAY: Dear Jesus, what's Your plan for me.? AMEN
