GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOU

We all have probably been guilty, at one time or another, of thinking we are not important, and that our life has no particular significance. Sometimes, we even feel unnecessary in the grand scheme of things going on in the world.

These feelings, although they are not of God, are what we might consider to be common feelings that most of have experienced at one time or another in our lives. Sometimes, we wonder why we are here, or what we are supposed to be doing, and how does our life affect others. It is absolutely normal to feel this way as a human being.....it is just natural to wonder these things. However, we all MUST realize that God DOES have a specific purpose for each of us! This, I believe, is one of the hardest things for many of us to grasp and hang onto. It is so easy to be self critical and determine within ourselves that we are not important and that we cannot make a difference, so why try! That is very common to feel that way, but it is a lie of the 'enemy'! Let me say right here that 'the enemy' that I speak about for the purpose of this message is the devil and his minions....his evil ones...his demons...whatever it is you prefer to call them. They are enemies of our very souls! They will lie to us, cause us to have these bad thoughts....remember, as we have taught before....the battle begins in the mind! The devil fights us through our 'thought processes'. The WORD tells us in Proverbs 23:7..."As a man thinketh, so is he".

Now, with that being said, I sense that many of you need to be lifted up in your spirits...in your inner man, in your heart of hearts, and to be told once more and to recognize the fact that you are not here by accident. You are here because God wants you to be here...he wants a family...he needs man to be His family, and He needs man to carry out His plan for the world. You are NOT insignificant, and you are NOT worthless, and you ARE somebody, and God DOES love you. He wants to use you, and He is there with you even when you don't realize that He is. He is waiting for you to come to HIM and accept Him!

Once, you do that, then He can begin to work in your life and shape and mold you and the things around you, and your circumstances, and relationships, and problems into blessings beyond all measure. Scripture tells us in Ephesians3:20 that God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think (KJV) (paraphrased). Then it goes on to say "according to the power that worketh in us"! Catch hold of that! Read it and read it until you realize that this means you! It means ALL of us!

In Jeremiah 29:11, the Lord says, "For I know the plans I have for you", declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek Me with all your heart 14 I will be found by you" declares the Lord, " and will bring you back from captivity(NIV)

I will stop there...but you need to look these Scriptures up for yourselves, and read and re-read until God reveals it to you...you will find more in this than I can ever explain to you. When God reveals His Word to us, it stays within us, and there is no question as to what it all means.

Sometimes, we are so bound by what the 'enemy' has got us caught up in, that we cannot see the good things of God. God wants us all to prosper and to be in good health, even as our soul prospers.. (3 John 2 ) If you are in a situation where you cannot see a way out, or are faced with circumstances where you cannot see a way through, reach out to God, as ask Him to take control, and watch how He not only will make things work out, He will go through it with you and make it bearable!

The devil likes to tell us that we aren't worthy, that we are inferior to others or inferior because of circumstances, inferior because of lack of finances, or convinvces us that we cannot do any better. These are LIES, LIES, LIES! Yes, that means you!!!! You need to hear this today! You ARE somebody...you are a child of God, you are the Righteousness of Christ (if you are saved and living an overcoming life), you are a Joint Heir with the King!, You are above and not beneath, you are the head and not the tail, you are going over and not under!

Tell the devil to back off and to take his workers and thoughts and evil ways with him, and grab onto the hand of God, and let Him take you through! Say to your mountain (whatever the problem is) "be thou removed"! In the Name of Jesus, it HAS to move! All things are possible through Jesus Christ, and every knee must bow to His Name!

Don't allow those negative thoughts to come in and crowd your mind, and convince you of all that negativity in your life. Rise up, and be counted as a child of God that you are! Accept Him and His ways, and He will lead you and guide you, and make you into the person that He made you to be! Remember, that anything that you are willing to accept, you will never change....ANYTHING YOU ARE WILLING TO ACCEPT, YOU WILL NEVER CHANGE!!!! Change your way of thinking, change your way of living, change your way of speaking things, change anything that is in your life that is holding you down, and causing you to feel worthless!! That feeling does not come from God!! It is LIES OF THE DEVIL!!!!

Stand up today and begin to reach out for those things that are yours....don't keep accepting rejection, and stop living in fear...Jesus tells us in 2 Timothy 7:3 that "God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and a sound mind". Begin to stand on that today, and BELIEVE you are somebody, and that you are going through whatever it is you are facing, and are coming out on top and that you will go over and not under and that "With God all things are possible" Matthew 19:26

Don't be a victim of circumstances...make your circumstances work for you to bring you to victory through the Mighty Blood of Jesus Christ!

Believe, believe, without doubting, that God is able to do it, and that will be one of the biggest steps you can make in beginning the process of overcoming all that you are going through!

May this message enrich your walk with the Lord, and bless you above and beyond all your expectations.
