God’s Special Life Plan!

07/08/2023 All day

Jesus replied, “What is impossible with man is possible with God” ( Luke 18:27).

The world has a way in which it looks at things and forms its opinion far different from the Christian world view. For example, the people of the world, have our lives divided to fit into a certain schedule as it knows. After birth, with possible education, you enter the work place and at a certain age, you retire to go into terminal decline. In other words, there is little you can do about the course of your life, for these are rules of life.

No so when it comes to believers in Christ who have received Jesus as a personal Lord and Saviour. Each one of us has a separate and individual path God has curved out for him. For he says, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations” ( Jeremuah 1:5).

Take for instance Moses who starts his life commision at 80; while the ministry of Jesus had been accomplished by age 33! What is significant here is to note God had a different timeline for either. We know an ageing couple, Abraham and Sarah, only had a child as octegerians. Impossible for the world; yet God had a different and unique plan to fullfil His purposes in a late timezone.

You would be very mistaken as a child of God to picture or schedule your life as the world understands. For many at mid life or once they start greying, taken up by worldly standards, start feeling there are done and perhaps ready to pack. The world also has a certain way it writes off those who no longer fit into its schedule. Yet, God would have a different plan for any of His childen, and for some life is just starting at a late age, as happaned to Moses!

Indeed there is a whole army of Christ followers all over the world being used of God in varied ministries, late in life, just as non believers have lost all hope! So, whenever you hear of the world placing people in boxes, just smile, knowing yours is different, as is God’s will.

Prayer today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, you who formed me for a special purpose, today I pray you help me find it and not schedule myself based on a worldly schedule, but yours alone, this I pray in Jesus’s name!
