THE SECRET PLAN OF GOD
BY SHIRLEY RHODES
According to Paul’s’ writings, the mystery is that people who have never heard of God and those who have heard of him all their lives stand on the same ground before God. They get the same offer, the same help and same promises in Christ Jesus. The Message is accessible and welcoming to everyone. We as followers should be about following the pattern. As Paul penned these words as the secret plan of God:
My task is to bring out in the open, make plain what God, who created this in the first place, has been doing in secret and behind the scenes all along, this extraordinary plan of God is becoming known and talked about even among the angels! All is proceeding as planned by God and then executed in Christ Jesus. So, when we trust in him, we are free to say whatever needs to be said, bold to go wherever we need to go.
In prayer I ask God to strengthen you by his spirit (a glorious inner strength) that Christ will live in you as you open the door and invite him in. I ask him that with both feet firmly planted in love you’ll be able to take in with followers of Jesus the extravagant dimension of Christ’s love. REACH OUT AND EXPERIENCE THE BREATH! TEST THE LENGTH! PLUMB THE DEPTHS! RISE TO THE HEIGHTS! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God.
God can do anything you know, far more than you could ever imagine, guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.
