Imparting life to the nations, one person at a time

April 7: Don’t Abort the Glory Plan

Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God.Psalms 20:7

Read: Jeremiah 17:5-10; Psalms 20: 5-8

Many times, our actions, rather than cooperate with God’s plan to manifest His glory in our lives as we walk the path of destiny, frustrate the plan. Have you ever tried to help someone and found that they were continually suspicious of your sincere motives? There is no doubt that we can either enhance or delay the great plan that God has for our lives. The Bible is full of stories of people who did one or the other. Rachel, Jacob’s wife, made the mistake of tying her destiny and its fulfillment to her husband. (Genesis 30:1-24) You must never tie the fulfillment of your destiny to any man living or dead. God is able to fulfill His promise to you regardless of who believes, supports, or opposes His plan. When you begin to depend on people because you feel your dreams may never be fulfilled without their help, you ultimately limit God’s power in that situation and, usually, He just waits for you to step aside before intervening again. Yes, God uses people to bless us. If you need a job, it won’t drop from the skies. If you want a better paying career, you may need to go back and pick up another degree or get additional training. You may need people to help you achieve some part of your dreams. But you must never depend on people. The Bible says the arm of flesh will fail! It is a curse to trust in man. But it is a great blessing to trust in Almighty God. The Bible says when you do, you will be like a tree planted by the waters whose leaf stays ever green! That’s perpetual prosperity. So agree with the “Glory Plan” today. Put your trust in God. Thank Him for everyone He brings into your life. Ask Him for discernment as to the role of each person. Ask Him to help you be a blessing as you enjoy the blessings they all bring into your life.
