Each of us needs to “Trust THE Plan”.
When a plan is put in place, it contains strategies to insure implementation. A strategy involves setting goals and priorities, determining actions to achieve the goals, and mobilizing resources to execute the actions. A strategy describes how the ends (goals) will be achieved by the means (resources). FATHER has a specific plan for each of us and it includes the use of angels who specifically carry out FATHER’S directives.
Jeremiah recorded by The Holy Spirit in chapter 29:
11 For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.
12 Then you will call upon Me, and you will come and pray to Me, and I will hear and heed you.
13 Then you will seek Me, inquire for, and require Me [as a vital necessity] and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.
FATHER’S strategies address every conceivable move by the adversary thus HE is always successful when we submit to HIS directives for our lives. Problems arise when we allow our soulish understanding to make decisions and take actions contrary to FATHER’S perfect plan and Divine Intent for us. Once again, “we need to get over ourselves” and trust the leading of The Holy Spirit and submit to FATHER’s directives.
It is written by The Holy Spirit in Psalm 139:
10 Wherever I go, Your Hand will guide me;
Your strength will empower me.
11 It’s impossible to disappear from you
or to ask the darkness to hide me,
for Your presence is everywhere, bringing light into my night.
12 There is no such thing as darkness with You.
The night, to You, is as bright as the day;
there’s no difference between the two.
FATHER’s intervention is clearly established in the above verses. Because of HIS intervention, we are intended to walk according to HIS predetermined plan and not in some haphazard fashion. HE knows where we are at every moment of every day so HE is always aware of our path and whether it is the one HE has ordained for us. HE is always ready to correct our steps so that we can return to HIS planned path for us.
13 You formed my innermost being, shaping my delicate inside
and my intricate outside,
and wove them all together in my mother’s womb.
14 I thank you, God, for making me so mysteriously complex!
Everything you do is marvelously breathtaking.
It simply amazes me to think about it!
How thoroughly you know me, Lord!
15 You even formed every bone in my body
when you created me in the secret place,
carefully, skillfully shaping me from nothing to something.
We are truly HIS handiwork and HE knows every aspect of our being. There was nothing created by some external force or entity. FATHER takes full credit for bringing into being. Trust THE PLAN.
16 You saw who you created me to be before I became me!
Before I’d ever seen the light of day,
the number of days You planned for me
were already recorded in Your book.
17–18 Every single moment You are thinking of me!
How precious and wonderful to consider
that You cherish me constantly in Your every thought!
O God, Your desires toward me are more
than the grains of sand on every shore!
When I awake each morning, You’re still with me.
Why did Jesus send The Holy Spirit to us? Jesus gave us one example in Luke chapter 12
8 “I can assure you of this: If you don’t hold back, but freely declare in public that I am the Son of Man, the Messiah, I will freely declare to all the angels of God that you are mine. 9 But if you publicly pretend that you don’t know me, I will deny you before the angels of God. 10 If anyone speaks evil of me, the Son of Man, he can be forgiven. But if anyone scornfully speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will never be forgiven. 11 And remember this: When people accuse you before everyone and forcefully drag you before the religious leaders and authorities, do not be troubled. Don’t worry about defending yourself or be concerned about how to answer their accusations. 12 Simply be confident and allow the Holy Spirit of Wisdom access to your heart, and he will reveal in that very moment what you are to say to them.”
The Holy Spirit will direct us what words to speak, especially when we are confronted by vessels of dishonor. Jesus also spoke in John chapter 14:
23 Jesus replied, “Loving Me empowers you to obey My Word. And My Father will Love you so deeply that We will come to you and make you Our dwelling place. 24 But those who don’t Love Me will not obey My Words. The Father did not send Me to speak My own revelation, but the Words of My Father. 25 I am telling you this while I am still with you. 26 But when the Father sends the Spirit of Holiness, the One like Me who sets you free, He will teach you all things in My Name. And He will inspire you to remember every Word that I’ve told you.
We have been given The Holy Spirit to implement FATHER’S Plan in our lives. He will set us free and teach us all things we need to know in order to walk out our individual callings and He is totally motivated by Agape Love. Simply trust The Plan!
