I love to look at floor plans. I love big houses, lots of windows. I even like little houses, which really intrigue me. To live in 500 square feet sounds neat, but then we like more than just elbow room. Some of the house plans you can purchase are not much money, but others are thousands of dollars. What you really get is a set of blueprints. These are intricate detailed workings of a plan and a must for the builder to do the right thing for that house.
God has intimate intricate detailed plans for your life. It’s not just an outline of it all, it’s detailed down to the last nail. You can’t buy these plans, but you can live in them. The enemy wants you to think that God’s plans for you are vague, changeable and filled with various truths from many sources. When it comes to building a life, though, wouldn’t you want something that would be detailed and perfect, so that when you build that house, it will stand?
Oh beloved, be careful. Read God’s plans well. Let Him teach you by Holy Spirit what will stand the test of time. You are building a life with Christ, for Christ and in honor of Him, so you have a beautiful blueprint of your life contained right between Genesis and Revelation.
God says to you this morning, My Word is your best, most reliable and honorable story of successful life building. I will teach you where to build, how to build and what materials to use. My structure of life is perfect and stable, pure and holy. When the rains come down and the flood of life rise, My plans stand the test. You will always be safe to choose My Word over anyone else’s. My leaders and teachers won’t be spouting their own jargon – they will be pointing you to Me. Always remember that Jesus is the Stone the builders rejected, so be prepared. Truth is always rejected by religion. Faith is always cheapened by worry, fear and doubt. So live for Me, listen to My Word, let Me teach you how to build your life and don’t look back. One day when you least expect it, I will honor what you’ve done by bringing others into your life who need to know what really works.
God loves you and He’s for you. His plans are perfect. They always fit, they always stand and they always go the distance. Rejoice that you don’t have to guess what you want – you can go straight to the Creator as you live in the Light of His Glory & Grace!
Luke 6:47-48 I will show you what it’s like when someone comes to me, listens to my teaching, and then follows it. It is like a person building a house who digs deep and lays the foundation on solid rock. When the floodwaters rise and break against that house, it stands firm because it is well built.
Ephesians 2:10 For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].
I Peter 2:4-5 You are coming to Christ, who is the living cornerstone of God’s temple. He was rejected by people, but he was chosen by God for great honor. And you are living stones that God is building into His spiritual temple. What’s more, you are His holy priests.
