”The wisdom of the wise keeps life on track” [Proverbs 14:8 The message]
You are uniquely designed, therefore the plan and purpose [the track] of your life is an original. It’s authentic because God does not make any carbon copies. He does not use a cookie cutter.
To be different than every other living thing is frightening at best. To stand alone in your identity would produce a perpetual self-destructive cycle. The answer? Your identity is only secured when found IN CHRIST! In Him you are an authentic human being governed by His Word and covered by His covenant.
As an authentic human being the goal is to be fully alive, able to see and hear the plan etched in the heart and hand of God.
His desire is for you to reach the potential for which He has invested His life in you. Here’s how you do it. ”Carefully follow the terms of this covenant, so that you may prosper in everything you do” [Deuteronomy 29:21 TM] Your life has great value, use it and plan it wisely.
He will give you the plan and set the goals,”We humans keep brainstorming options and plans, but God’s purpose prevails” [Proverbs 19:21 TM] Seek Him for establishing the plan and setting your goals.
He will be your power. ”My grace is enough; it’s all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness” [2 Corinthians 12:9 TM] You do the possible but, God’s plan will always require God’s power. That’s the way He’s designed it and its not only authentic it’s unique!
