God's Plans

Monday, June 24th, 2019

Psalm 37:4

“Enjoy serving the LORD, and he will give you what you want.”

Max's Message:

Can you imagine the outcome if a parent honored each request of each child during a trip? We'd inch our bloated bellies from one ice-cream store to the next.... Can you imagine the chaos if God indulged each of ours? ..... "For God has not destined us to the terrors of judgement, but to the full attainment of salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ" (1 Thess. 5:9 NEB). Note God's destiny for your life. Salvation. God's overarching desire is that you reach that destiny. His itinerary includes stops that encourage your journey. He frowns on stops that deter you. When his sovereign plan and your earthly plan collide, a decision must be made. Who's in charge of this journey? If God must choose between your earthly satisfaction and your heavenly salvation, which do you hope he chooses? Me too.
