Purpose

Jeremiah 29:8-12 Believe it or not, this is the Message from God-of-the-Angel-Armies, Israel’s God: “Don’t let all those so-called preachers and know-it-alls who are all over the place there take you in with their lies. Don’t pay any attention to the fantasies they keep coming up with to please you. They’re a bunch of liars preaching lies–and claiming I sent them! I never sent them, believe me.” God’s Decree! This is God’s Word on the subject: “As soon as Babylon’s seventy years are up and not a day before, I’ll show up and take care of you as I promised and bring you back home. I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out–plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for. “When you call on me when you come and pray to me, I’ll listen.

Jeremiah 29:10 This is God’s Word on the subject: “As soon as Babylon’s seventy years are up and not a day before, I’ll show up and take care of you as I promised and bring you back home.”

God speaks to us through His word: 
He promises us that at the right time in our lives He will show up and take care of everything. He will take notice of what is going on in and through our lives and provide a solution to every problem.

Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. Proverbs 3:6

Jeremiah 29:11 I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out–plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.

God has a plan for our lives and He knows what He is doing.
If you asked me today what I am searching for through recovery the answer is found in Step 11“In order to discover God’s purpose for my life, implement it and to improve my relationship with Him, I will spend time daily in prayer, reading the Bible and meditating on it.”

 

Proverbs 19:21 We humans keep brainstorming options and plans, but GOD’s purpose prevails.

Proverbs 15:22 Refuse good advice and watch your plans fail; take good counsel and watch them succeed.

Ecclesiastes 3:17 “There’s a right time for everything, every deed–and there’s no getting around it.”

Ephesians 1:8-9 He thought of everything, provided for everything we could possibly need, letting us in on the plans he took such delight in making. He set it all out before us in Christ.

Ephesians 3:12 When we trust in Him, we’re free to say whatever needs to be said, bold to go wherever we need to go.
Destiny

ETERNAL DESTINY

Christ died for us while we were still sinners. This demonstrates God’s love for us. Since Christ’s blood has now given us God’s approval, we are even more certain that Christ will save us from God’s anger. Romans 5:8-9

There is an awful indictment of condemnation given in Revelation 21:8 which says “For the rest—the feckless and faithless, degenerates and murderers, sex peddlers and sorcerers, idolaters and all liars—for them it’s Lake Fire and Brimstone. Second death!”  It is a warning to those who are easily submissive to commit crime; it is God’s judgement of depraved actions. People who find it easy to violate divine laws. It includes everyone who are cowards when it comes to resisting evil, or wicked influences.

Revelation 21:8 is specific that for all such people – “for them it’s Lake Fire and Brimstone. Second death!” This is a frightening statement.


MEDITATION
Hell is a non-ending punishment awaiting all who reject God’s mercy and salvation. It is possible for us all to experience a minor hell on earth along the pathway of life. But make no mistake, final judgement in inevitable and only has two possible results. Heaven for those of us willing to accept Christ as our personal Saviour for daily victory, and who seek to know His will for our lives and follow His plan for us. Hell, a penalty for unbelief and failure to accept Jesus.

Our eternal destiny is our choice; faced with it is it not common sense to choose faith and God’s alternative offer? Today if you have not made a choice, make it now! Invite heavenly interception, divine influence and a Saviour interceding to set you on the right path – God’s!

PRAYER
God, be merciful to me, an unbeliever and sinner on the road to hell.
