Notice if you will I said discovering your Plan or Blueprint, not creating your Plan or Blueprint. There is a big difference between the two. To discover something means that it was already made and designed uniquely just for you, and the purposes that you were created for by your Heavenly Father God. We know this through a popular scripture and one that I am sure you have heard many times before or maybe if you are new to Christianity, you are hearing it for the first time today whichever is the case it still applies to each and every one of us:
Jeremiah 29:11 (Easy-to-Read Version)
11 I say this because I know the plans that I have for you.” This message is from the LORD. “I have good plans for you. I don’t plan to hurt you. I plan to give you hope and a good future.
Throughout our lives, we all have hardships and trials that come our way. However, if we have faith to believe in the Plans that our Heavenly Father God has for each of us, those hardships and trials become the building blocks with which we begin to build our houses or lives of Faith with. Your Heavenly Father God didn’t cause the hardships or trials, that’s just Life here on earth. What He has given us a way to tap into what His plans are or our lives, and to begin building upon the Blueprint that He designed for our faith to build. The house that we are to live in, and the House of Faith that we are to communicate His Love to the World through. The way that we tap into His blueprint for our individual lives is through prayer and mediating on His Word to us personally.
Ok, Ok, I can hear you all thinking, there she goes, just like every other Pastor and Preacher out there telling us to pray and mediate on God’s word and all will become clear. Yes, I am saying that but please hear the rest of what I am saying before you shut me down. Yes, you must pray and ask God what His plans are for you, however, YOU HAVE TO ACT upon what you believe in your heart to be your individual plans that He has for you. If you just sit back in your rocking chair, and never do anything to begin your forward motion in receiving your Plans and Blueprint for your life, your life will remain the same and perhaps get worse simply because you are not willing to move forward in Building your Faith House.
The Bible in the book of James provides us with a very graphic image of what I am talking to you about that you MUST ACT UPON AND MOVE FORWARD WITH YOUR BLUEPRINT THAT ONLY GOD HAS DESIGNED AND LAID OUT FOR YOU.
James 2:26Amplified Bible (AMP)
26For as the human body apart from the spirit is lifeless, so faith apart from [its] works of obedience is also dead.
Even Jesus’s mother Mary, tells the servants at the wedding feast where Jesus turned the water into wine in:
• John 2:5
His mother said to the servants, Whatever He says to you, do it.
I Don’t believe for one second that would have happened…and I don’t believe any of you believe that if the water pots hadn’t of been gathered up that day that it would have happened either. Faith requires Actions!
What about the miracle of feeding the multitudes in John chapter 6? Would the miracle of feeding the multitudes have happened if the disciples just sat there and said…..Ah, a boy brought 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish, but that won’t cut, which is basically what Phillip said to Jesus that day. What do you think would have happened that day if Phillip and the other disciples had refused to bring Jesus such a minor amount of food? Don’t you think the people would be hungry even to this day, because the disciples decided said, Just let it come to us and we will give it to you, but if it doesn’t come, we will just send everyone home hungry.
One thing is for certain, just as the Earth continues to spin on its axis in a forward motion, if it ever stops moving forward, the whole World will begin moving backward. And folks that spells certain disaster waiting to happen, and that is exactly what will happen in your life, if you aren’t moving forward placing action to your faith in what you believe you are hearing, you are moving backward on a path to disaster! Your Faith House isn’t going to fall on you like the house did on the witch in the Wizard of Oz movie, and I can promise you it isn’t going fall on top of you and you curl up and die underneath the weight of it either. It will simply remain within the Mind and Heart of God waiting for you to begin desiring His plans and begin building upon His Blueprint for the House that Your Faith Builds! As much as God wants you to have it, if you don’t willingly ask and receive His Plans, He won’t force it upon you.
