'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]

God has a divine plan for each of our lives. He has something for all of us to do, to be 'more and more', just like Jesus. He has blessed us with talents, gifts and abilities which we can use to bring glory and honor to Him. God has assigned each and every human being - at least 'one' specific purpose. Those who fail to come to God through faith in Jesus Christ, will never accomplish God's specific purpose or purposes for that specific individual. The 'mark' that person could have left for others, will never happen. WOW! Amen. Amen.
Welcome My Friends.
We have begun a new 'Fall into Winter' 2018 Series of posts during our 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? [Post 1, 2, October 7, 13, 2018]
What is God's Plan for My Life? [Post 4 October 20, 2018, ongoing.]
Must I Accept God's Plan for My Life, or, May I Refuse God's Plan and 'go my own way'? [Post 3, October 14, 2018] Please, keep these three areas in mind, as we go forth in all the posts. audio-bible.com/bible.html
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}
Now that we have taken care of 'first things first' on our Posts 1, 2, 3, October 7, 13, 14, 2018; for those who have come to 'the faith', more on the second and more 'specific will of God', for His Children.
My Friends, until and unless you take the 'first things first', the remainder of this series will be but 'reading' to you. You will not have the indwelling Holy Spirit who is given the moment you first believe to teach you the Scriptures, which are 'spirit and truth'. Your studies will simply be like a 'soundless gong'. Let us therefore be hearers and doers of the Word, not deceiving ourselves. [James 1:20-25]. Amen. Amen.
It is true, as you learned, that God does not want anyone to perish. [1 Timothy 2:4; Hebrews 10:38; 2 Peter 3:8-10] And yet, many will 'make their own way', choosing to 'refuse His Offer of Salvation by His Grace, through Faith in Jesus Christ.. And, they shall perish, in 'the unpardonable sin', 'the refusal to accept God's Way', by the 'pulling of the Holy Spirit'. [Matthew 12:31-32; Mark 3:28-29; John 3:15-16; Ephesians Chapter 2].
But, now, for those who have accepted 'salvation by grace through Faith in Jesus Christ', [Ephesians 2], let us understand what can be called - 'the 'second part of His will', which is more specific. Post A
God has a divine plan for each of our lives. He has something for all of us to do, to be 'more and more', just like Jesus. He has blessed us with talents, gifts and abilities which we can use to bring glory and honor to Him. God has assigned each and every human being - at least 'one' specific purpose. Those who fail to come to God through faith in Jesus Christ, will never accomplish God's specific purpose or purposes for that specific individual. The 'mark' that person could have left for others, will never happen. WOW!
When any person realizes the depth of this truth, it can give the person a 'motivation' to 'die to self' and to 'live to God', totally abandoned, submitted and surrendered to Him, in ways unimaginable. For Real! [Matthew 6:33; 16:25; 22:37-39; John 12:24; Romans 12:10; Philippians 2:3-4] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
[See the posts earlier in this 'room' from September 29, 30, 2018 and October 6, 2018, discussing the requirement of 'being a living sacrifice' 'in Jesus Christ', for more on 'Dying to Self' for your own self-examination.]
From Jeremiah 29:11-13 we learn, to wit:
'11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. 12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.' [KJV}
Further, we find in the Bible at 1 Corinthians 12:14-18, to wit:
'For the body is not one member, but many. If the foot shall say, 'Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body'; is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear shall say, 'Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body'; is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, how would we hear? If the whole were hearing, how would we smell? But God has set the members every one of them in the body, as it has pleased him.'
As you study what is written, on the next post, we will dig deeper to understand the 'functioning' of the 'body of Christ'. Keep in mind, we are not all the same, but, together, we can be used by the Lord in some awesome and mighty ways, for the Praise of the Glory of God, for the sake of Jesus Christ. All this can be done, for and with 'whosoever' is 'willing'. So, please, stay tuned. Amen. Amen.
