Planning for the Future

Luke 16;10

Our time on earth is the beginning of an eternity serving and rejoicing in the Lord.

Someday, when we stand in the Savior’s holy and just presence, the only things that will remain are what we’ve done to glorify Jesus (1 Corinthians 3:10-15).

Jesus Stands With Us

UOwvwZ9Dy6w

Remember, even in painful circumstances, three truths are certain:  Jesus stands with us; He strengthens us for whatever task our Father wants us to accomplish; and until our final breath, He will enable us to fulfill God’s purpose.  Be comforted and encouraged by these promises of the living Lord.

The Strength of God

ie-9chgWE_4

Often, the Lord allows us to come to the end of our own ability so that we clearly see His hand.  Otherwise, we would attribute success to our own doing.  God enables us to go on, fearlessly, boldly, and effectively.

God’s quiet voice

BXwbfuM0cdk

When God calls, He speaks into our heart and mind through the Holy Spirit.  In this way, He communicates specifically to each of His children.  That’s why two people can hear the same sermon or verse and receive different applications.  But various hindrances can interfere with our Father’s messages to us.  So, beware of busyness:  When life is full and noisy, God’s quiet voice is nearly undetectable.

He will speak peace

For those willing to hear, God’s “voice” can be discerned through a variety of sources.  The most obvious is the Bible, but He can also call to us through the spoken or written words of other Christians.  And at times He speaks through circumstances and the wonders of creation (Romans 1:20).  We would be amazed if we knew all the ways our loving Father tries to get our attention.
