Finding Our Place in God’s Plan

And Jesus called [to Him] the throng with His disciples and said to them, If anyone intends to come after Me, let him deny himself [forget, ignore, disown, and lose sight of himself and his own interests] and take up his cross, and [joining Me as a disciple and siding with My party] follow with Me [continually, cleaving steadfastly to Me].

It is time to throw it all away. All of the self-planning; self-interests; self-preservation; and most of all, the self-induced thoughts of who God is and what He wants with us!

It is time to seek the Lord and His Will for our lives. As Christians, we are so scattered. Just ask a hundred professing Christians what they think God’s purpose for their lives is, and you will be surprised at how many simply do not have a clue. This is why so many run after the ‘hot’ topic of the day, without giving much thought to how they might fit in the plan of God or even if He has a plan at all.

It is time to understand that each one of us definitely has a place in God’s plan and we need to find out what it is before we miss out on the most satisfying and fruitful times of our lives. It does not matter who you are; being a Christian means you are in the family of God and He has purpose for your life and He is not hiding that from you.

Did you ever think that you may be the missing piece to the problem that stands out most to you? It is entirely possible God wants to use you to make a difference. But understand this, it will not just happen without a definite move on your part to believe God can and will use you and make the decision to get in the game.

Take a moment, wherever you are, and make the conscious decision to pray, get in the Word, and submit to God’s Will for your life…your life and the lives of those around you will be better for it.

Father, help us to see our place in your plan and help us to submit to your Will for our lives. Amen.

    Once again God has us on the same wavelength at the same time. My blog post of May 19 covers the same thing (, especially the quote by F. B. Meyer.

      Yes, God has a plan and we have a place in it. When we live with eyes and heart focused on Him, we can and will find ourselves in a place that not only work for us but for others as well! Blessings!

    The hardest one for me to toss away is “self-preservation”… God bless you and your family–love, sis Caddo
