'BEFORE THE MOUNTAINS WERE BROUGHT FORTH, OR EVER THOU HADST FORMED THE EARTH AND THE WORLD, FROM EVERLASTING TO EVERLASTING THOU ART GOD.' [KJV PSALM 90:2]

Welcome My Friends.
We now begin a new 'Fall into Winter' 2018 Series of posts during our weekly Saturday and Sunday times together for the purpose of answering three  very specific and forthright questions, to wit:
Does God Have a Plan for My Life?
What is God's Plan for My Life?
Must I Accept God's Plan for My Life, or, May I Refuse God's Plan and 'go my own way'?
Please, keep these three areas in mind, as we go forth in all the posts.
Today, more than ever, the above three questions must be personally asked, and the answer must be ascertained. This is true, for as it is written in Romans 13:12-14, to wit:
'12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.' [KJV}
[Study also Romans Chapter 13, to be wise. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
If you have ever wondered whether or not God has a plan for your life and about God's 'plan' or 'will' for your life, then be encouraged to know in a nutshell that the answer is - a resounding - Yes! Yes! Yes! He has one! Please realize that God wants you to know His Divine plan for your life. It should not and does not - have to be a - 'secret' or 'mystery'.
Have you ever wondered about God's will for your life? While it is true that every Christian ponders this question from time to time; it is equally true that those who have not come by the Grace of God to faith in Jesus Christ, also ponder this very same question.
It is therefore important and we all should and can know the purpose God has for our lives. In fact, God wants us to know the reason He created us and put us here on this earth. [See Genesis 3]
So then, let us start with - 'First Things First'. Post 1 of 2, October 7, 13, 2018.
If you have been 'stopping by' 'my home with and in Jesus', then you know - I do not pull any punches.
By studying the Holy Bible, we find that 'God's Will' can be understood by seeing two very distinct parts. For example, God is 'sovereign' and has a 'decreed will' that will happen, no matter what.
But, God also has a very 'general will' for 'all of humanity', and then, 'specific commands' for His Children. These later should be obeyed, but, often are not. For you see, God is not 'a dictator', and has given each and every person created, 'free will'. Please keep these statements in mind, as we go forward.
Therefore, let us take this opportunity for each of us to 'exercise' our God given 'free will' and take 'first things first', if we have not done this, before. [This will fall into the category of - God's General Will for all Humanity. And, yes, you can refuse it, and 'go to your detriment - your own way'.]
God's desire and 'will', first and foremost, is for us to accept Him as Lord and Savior. You, have a 'choice'.
He will not 'force' you to do this, but, offer each and every person who hears His Word - 'the opportunity'.
The scriptures say at 2 Peter 3:9. to wit:
'9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.'
Further, we have the 'witness' of the very same 'truth', found in Isaiah 30:18, to wit:
'18 And therefore will the Lord wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the Lord is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him.'
Further, we have the 'witness' of this very same 'truth', found in Ezekiel 33:10-11, to wit:
'10 Therefore, O thou son of man, speak unto the house of Israel; Thus ye speak, saying, If our transgressions and our sins be upon us, and we pine away in them, how should we then live? [KJV}
11 Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?' [KJV}
For anyone to 'know Christ personally', anyone must be willing to turn from sins to Him for 'salvation'.
This means that we must recognize the fact that we are by nature sinners. [Genesis 3]
For some people, this is a very hard thing to do. It is hard for people to accept the truth that in and of themselves they are 'rotten to the core.' My prayer is that you are not one of them. For, 'As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:' [Romans 3:10] Amen. Amen.
