God has a plan and a purpose for everything that He has created, including us. He doesn't ask much of his creations. He just wants us to be what He created us to be. To live out His plan and designed purpose for our lives. If we could all do that, I believe that we would see a great change in this world.
I've been listening to Dr. Miles Monroe a lot lately. He says that has God placed the potential of everything He created, within it. The seed that grows into a tree. The bird is born with the ability to fly already in it. The fish in the ocean, don't have to be trained to swim. Bees already know how to pollenate, the currents of the ocean and even the patterns the winds take, all have a purpose. So, like wise we must know and believe that there is a purpose planted inside of us. We just have to seek it, awaken it and live it.
Even the things that we consider bad are a part of His plan. That may be hard to understand but if you believe that God has a plan, you also have to believe that His plan is perfect. We have to trust Him even when we can't comprehend it. His ways and His thoughts are so much higher than our own (Is 55: 8-9). There is no way we will ever know or understand everything about God.
But we also need to know that the enemy has plans and a purpose for our lives as well. And it goes against everything that God wants for us. The enemy will use our own basic instincts to satisfy our flesh against us. To keep us from standing in our God given purpose.
Be aware that there are two forces at odds around us at all times. One working for us and the other working against us. Over everything else remember this... the enemy cannot change God's plan for your life. He can delay it or he can trick you out of it BUT that is only if you let him. He has no power over what God has created you to do, so don't give him any.
We have to stand strong and be courageous while this battle goes on around us. We must trust that God has our best interest. Trust God to lead and protect us. Trust that He will prevail. Do not fear and do not be shaken. And again do not give any power to the enemy.
Have faith, believe and trust God. Amen.
