God has a plan for us! Even before I knew Jesus as God and the Lord of my life I believe He saved me from ultimate death and prepared me for His plans for my life. He has a plan and a future for my children. My youngest is four and once when my husband was praying and mentioned God our son said, "God, Jesus is God." Wow! to have such an understanding at such a young age. Even after my husband and me recommitted our lives to the Lord we didn't know that Jesus was God; without doing some studying and praying. That leads me to believe:
Proverbs 21:30 "There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the ."
The Lord gives us a great map to help us stay on the narrow path it's in the Holy Bible and here is one of the markers on this map which will keep us on the Lords path:
Proverbs 21:21 "Whoever pursues righteousness and love"
Righteousness is acting in accord with divine or moral law, free from guilt or sin
Righteousness=Prosperity=honor and life (eternal) Romans 2:7-8
For Further Study:
Israels Covenant with God- Promised Life and Honor
Blessings for Obedience Deut. 28:1-19
Righteousness and unfailing love Exodus 34:5-7, Deut. 7:9-11
The First and Greatest Commandment this is how we are to follow the law but are not bound to it: LOVE this is how Jesus Christ shattered the impossible laws of the old covenant and it's how we stand in righteousness and follow Gods plans for us: We Love the Lord God first and foremost and Love our neighbors as ourselves. We show others greater love, compassion and mercy.
Have you been standing on your own plans?
How will you change and make God first again in your life?
Have you been less than loving to your neighbors?
How will you change and treat them the way you would want to be treated?
