More Surprises

I’m still thinking about surprises. About how amazed the disciples must have been as they faced this new adventure in Christ. It was nothing like anything anyone had known before. Not your usual Jewish Life.

It was a new life in Christ.

Here is another surprise. In Christ, your life is not your own.

Even Jesus mentioned that the Jews made plans. “We will do this, and then go to this city and do business there.”

But the Disciples discovered that God had another way. In Christ, GOD makes the plans. Look at these phrases sprinkled through the middle of Acts:

“because the Holy Spirit told them not to go into the province of Asia at that time.”

“again the Spirit of Jesus did not let them go.”

“For we could only conclude that God was calling us to preach the Good News there.”

I think that most new believers would be surprised to discover that God has plans for their lives. Not ordinary plans, but supernatural ones. Not earthly plans, but heavenly ones. His plans have to do with our heavenly assignment here on earth.

So, tell me, what surprising plans has God left for you to accomplish? Are they big? Important? Or are they small and detailed. Do they have to do with many? Or just the one? Do you KNOW what his plan is for your life? Your year? Your day?

Don’t let Christian television explain God’s good plan for you. Find it for yourself. It may be small. It may be limited. But I can tell you with absolute confidence that it is important. Eternally important.

Watch. Listen. Pray. Ask. Let go of your own expectations, or ambitions. Seek. Do you hear something? Have you heard something?

Do tell!

    Bette,

    I appreciate your message of our Lord Jesus Christ written in all of the books that I have had the privelege to read of yours, so far. I am looking forwarding to reading the newer ones, that I have not read yet; I think I will be visiting the book stores soon and looking for some.

    Blessings,
    Linda Wolcott
