How can we understand if God has a plan for us?
- We can start to understand God’s plan through His Word. The study of the Word can help us align our life to His values.
- Closely follow Him. Ref Romans 12:1-2. Converse with Him / abide in Him / get close to Him.
- Pray constantly. Don’t just talk at God but LISTEN. I need to listen more, and this is why Prayer ministry is so important here at St James, and I ask you to take advantage of this please don’t let the Prayer ministry team get bored!
- Other areas. God can show His plans for us through other means, through friends and family – through current circumstance and even through visions and dreams. Note – these areas are subjective – carefully appraise these areas through scripture/prayer etc.
And, like Abram, God has a plan for each of us. I urge you to explore those areas just mentioned and ask God again and again who He wants us to be for Him as that can be specified for each of us. But in addition to this, part of God’s plan is for us to become more and more Christ-like as the years go by and to use us to bring others to him.
