Our life is a product of what we see III

Dear friends, welcome to „Daily Word for Spiritual Edification”! For several days we have been talking about the importance of building your future.  We established that if we do not understand what we want, we won’t be able to construct a great future for our lives.  We also acknowledged that God wants to expand our vision; He wants to broaden how we see our lives at present. We saw it in the life of Abram; God promised to make him great. But God could not do it by Himself; first He had to expand Abram’s vision of himself and God’s promises. God told Abram that He is going to give him the land, but he had to envision it first. Also we talked about how important it is to visualize and picture the future God has for us; without it we won’t be able to reach out to this future. It is written that God only does what we think and ask for, and  also beyond it. This point is crucial. We have to ask these questions on a consistent basis: How do I see my life right now? What am I thinking about? Yesterday we saw that God cannot do these things without our participation and, on the other hand, we cannot build a wonderful future of ourselves without God. God wants us to cooperate with Him. His future and our future is a great, bright one. But we have to cooperate with Him to make sure this imagined future becomes a reality in our lives. It might be that today you look small in your own eyes, but God wants to give you a great future. And He does not keep us in ignorance about the prospects for the future, and for this very reason He gave us the Holy Spirit. One of the things that the Holy Spirit does is revealing the future God has prepared for us.
«But as it is written: „Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God» (1 Corinthians, 2:9-10).
This passage of Scripture tells us that God has a plan. He has a future for us, and not just any future, but a glorious future. No person knows this future; only the Spirit of God does. The Holy Spirit reveals to us the plans of God because He searches all things and knows the heart of God; He knows God’s thoughts about each one of us individually. So it is very important to inquire God about your future and not people.
«For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart» (Jeremiah, 29:11-13).
God does not want us to be at peace and let things drift along.  We must make certain effort to create a great future full of victory and wonderful deeds. For this to happen we must know the plans of God for our lives. Not only we must know the plans of God, but we must take pains in order to move towards the desired future. God has promised to support us. Be blessed! Till tomorrow! Pastor Rufus Ajiboye
