God's Plan Works if You Work the Plan

God's plan works, if you work the plan

Do not be conformed to the patterns of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind...(Romans 12:2)

We were not meant to live lives like everyone else.

  • Our marriages are supposed to be qualitatively different
  • Our financial lives are supposed to be demonstratively different
  • Our relationships with others are supposed to be a blessing
  • Life is supposed to be the abundant purpose-filled life
When Jesus was explaining why God had sent him on this mission to earth Jesus replied, "I have come that you might have life and have it abundantly" (John 10:10).

God has a plan for how we might live into transformed lives. 

We need to replace faulty thinking about who we are and what life is supposed to be about, and replace them with God's truths about what who we are and what our ultimate purpose is.

And as we download God's truths about marriage, finances, relationships, decision-making etc., and when we start putting them into action, transformation is the result.

God's plan works, if you work the plan.

God's plan works. That's the first part.

But, in order for God's plan to be realized in individual lives, we have to put those truths into action. It's not enough to know that God's plan works. It's not enough to know that healthy eating and exercise leads to healthy lives. We have to put that plan into action. We have to eat healthy and we have to exercise. And if we stick to that plan, the plan works.

If we do our part, God's plan works. 

So what are you waiting for?

Get out there and start putting God's plan for transformation to work.

God's plan works, if you work the plan.
