God’s Plan is You!

Several years ago someone made this point about something else and I wish I could remember who it was so I could give them credit, sadly I don’t remember but here is the idea.

Every time something big and scary happens in the world I hear over and over that “God is still on His Throne” and “God has a plan”. What we tend to miss is this vital truth:


Psalm 115:16 says, “The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s: But the earth He has given to the children of men.”
in Matthew 28:18 Jesus says “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.” vs. 19 starts with “Go therefore”, and vs. 20 ends with “I am with you always, even to the end of the end of the age.” Further, Colossians 1:27 says the hope of glory is Christ in me and glory speaks of the fullness of God. If the fullness of God is in me, and it is, what does that mean?

I think the meaning is reflected in Exodus 14:14 – 15 where Moses says “The Lord will fight for you” and God’s reply is “Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Isreal to go forward.” And that was before the Holy Spirit was given to each of us for the presence of God to actually reside in us. (Romans 8:9)

So, by all means, acknowledge that God is still on the Throne and that God has a plan, but don’t forget:

the hope of the world is Christ in you.

My Bible college professor used to say “The Word of God in your mouth is just as powerful as the Word of God in His mouth”. Wherever you go realize Christ is in you and live into that reality. Speak life and truth, take encouragement with you, serve with gladness, and ask God where you can show light and life in this dark world. Most of the time all it takes is a smile. Don’t hide your light under a bushel basket take the lid off and be bold, You have the infinite power of Almighty God, Creator of Heaven and Earth, and the Healer of all mankind resident in you. (Ephesians 3:20)

God can do it all by Himself but he has chosen to work through his people, you and me. As my friend says “Be a blessing to someone today”.
