Topic: God Has A Plan For Your Life [Wednesday April 4, 2018]
“And the Lord said unto Samuel… fill thine horn with oil, and go, I will send thee to Jesse the Beth–lehemite: for I have provided me a king among his sons.” 1 Samuel 16:1 KJV
David was tending his father’s flock at the backside of the desert when God sent the ancient prophet Samuel to go to the house of Jesse to anoint a king. This was because Saul that God raised up out of nothing had disappointed Him. But God has an alternative. You see, when you disappoint God, you really did not disappoint Him, rather you disappointed yourself. God has a plan for every one of us. God has a plan for your life. You are not an accident by birth. God allowed you to be born, but before you were born, He arranged a colourful future for you. “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” (Jeremiah 29:11 KJV)
God’s plan for your future is colourful. Your future is bright and the beauty of it is that His design for you, no power can take it from you, except you. Beloved, your end is glorious. It doesn’t matter what you are encountering right now, your end is glorious and you will arrive at that glorious end. No matter your encounter, no matter where you are now, no matter the difficulties you are passing through, your end is glorious. God has already ordained your end ever before you were born. So, no matter what the enemy does in between, don’t forget that our God is still the Alpha and the Omega. He has the first and the final word. Therefore, no matter what the devil is doing, he does not have the final word. The final word belongs to our God.
I declare that your time has come. You will still testify. The enemy wants you garaged, but it will not stand because your time has come.
