God has a plan for each of us to walk out in our life (Jer.29:11). Our Lord has put within each of us a personality, gifting and abilities that He has designed to use uniquely to His glory. They must become significant considerations in our growth and maturity development. The way our wise God put us together is the way He means for us to function effectively in His plan. You may become discouraged and stop short of that plan, but you don’t have to… not at any point. (Ps.139:13-14, ERV) “You formed the way I think and feel. You put me together in my mother’s womb. 14 … you made me in such a wonderful way.” We are praying you discover daily that you are being what God made you to be to His Glory. (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day.)
What of the New Year? — Thoughts, Plans & Inventions
The Psalmist declares he is aware that He is included in God’s thoughts. One of the meanings of “thoughts” (Jer.29:11) is “an invention.” God has a plan for you in 2013 and, if necessary, He will INVENT required elements to work together to get you to that goal that glorifies Him and serves His purposes. He is beneficent and He is creative.
“thoughts”: a device, a plan, a purpose, AN INVENTION (Thayer)
“For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.” (Jer.29:11, Amp)
