” Why doesn’t God ……. ??? is an often-asked question… and one reason may be found in the Holy Bible in Chapter 20 of Ezekiel… Pay particular attention to Verses 9 14, and 20 Ezekiel 20:14 New Living Translation (NLT) 14 “But again I held back in order to protect the honor of my name […]
Seeking God’s Plan, as you make choices in your life, …….is the most important objective anyone can have !
Knowledge, of Him, about Him, why He created you, and what He expects of you, and obedience therein, brings Life, life more abundantly. It leads to Peace, and wisdom.
Many Christians and Godly People faithfully seek His Plan for their life…..many ask Him ” What occupation ???…..What spouse ???…..Where should I live ???…..Should I do this??? or that???…..
many ask Him … ‘ God what is your plan for my life ???……’
Though some find it through God , or just by coincidence, many, without certainty, continue seeking God’s Plan for their life.
Usually they are seeking God’s plan for their life now….before they understand God’s Plan when He created them. Remember Creation is long before conception. God said “ I knew you before you were formed in your mother’s womb ” Jeremiah 1:5
Realizing why God created Adam….to know, love, and serve Him, as a friend, in fellowship not slavery….and understanding that is also why He created each of us, should always lead us to consider God’s Plan in Creation first ! Understanding what He expects from us, and using that as a test for all of our decisions, will provide the wisdom that indicates His paths for your life .
Mature Christians and Godly People should be aware of this on a continuing basis, through faithfulness (Galatians 5:22) but the lack of directional teaching has left them distracted from God’s priorities.
Almighty God said “ My people, are destroyed for a lack of knowledge” …... Hosea 4:6
In knowing God had a plan for our creation ….we can better understand what we are expected to do.
By realizing that our creation came before our conception, God’s Plan becomes more of a priority in life.
Because God desires man choose to love Him, He has chosen only to influence man in his choices, and God does not not force us to follow Him and His ways.
We get to choose what we do……. The Bible says ” the steps of a righteous man are ordered “….. but they are not ordered by God, they are ordered by man, by his choices !
The choices and decisions, are always made by man !
Joshua said ” ……decide today whom you will obey. ………….. But as for me and my family, we will serve the Lord “ Josh 24
But the paths……leading to life or eternal punishment are predestined by God !
You may remember the children’s books ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’. The reader really couldn’t choose his own adventure, he could only make choices to experience what the author had already chosen.
God’s pre-destined plans are like that for each of us. He is the author.
Almighty God said “See, I have set before you today life and good, and death and evil …..choose life “ Deut 30: 15-20
Testing each path in life first by God’s Plan in Creating man, will always bring peace and wisdom as to your best choice !
Do your choices lead YOU to know, love, and serve Him ??? …. that is his plan in creating you.
