The Plan, the Process and the Promise

July 23, 2017

Dereck’s message yesterday: The plan, the process and the promise
God doesn’t see time as we do. God created man in His image and likeness. This means that you have creative ability. The world’s a mes


s because man was separated from God. The fall of man was caused by listening to an unclean spirit. If you are influenced by something that’s outside the Word of God, that’s an unclean spirit. God has compassion on man, His plan was that He sent His Son out of the supernatural to earth to save man. Matthew 9:36 “When He saw the crowds, He had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.” If we look to the world for a solution we won’t find one, we’ll only find temporary gratification. Galatians 4:4-5 “But when the set time had fully come. God sent His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to son-ship.” God is eternity and God uses time to make us wait. We hate waiting but God has a purpose in our waiting. We are in time and God has created time for a purpose. Something is actually happening when it seems like nothing’s happening. Many times we sabotage our futures because we don’t know what God’s plan for us is. Time accomplishes a purpose if we allow the process to happen and happen in its fullest. Time is subject to eternity, eternity’s not subject to time. God created time to change and mould and shape us so that we can connect to eternity. Isiah 30:18 “Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; therefore He will rise up to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all those who wait for Him.” God is waiting for you, He has a plan for you and is waiting for you. When something doesn’t fulfill its purpose it gets abnormally used / abused. In God’s presence is fullness of joy. It’s possible to turn your life around. If we’ve been hurt in life, we can’t change it but we can change our attitude about it. As long as we don’t forgive we are at the mercy of the other person; it’s like a cancer. Ask God to help you to forgive those who hurt you. God is using time to get you ready for your destiny but you’ve got to do your part. If you don’t want to change, continue to see yourself as a victim. Stay proud and carry on doing your own thing and your life will not change. If nothing’s happening and you are trying your best, it doesn’t mean that something is not in the making. You are blessed while you are waiting says the Lord. But do you believe in the Word of God and are you standing in it? As long as you’re living a life in line with the Word of God you must learn to rest in your situation. You cannot and will not change heavens timing and God’s mind. You’ve got to believe in your heart that God’s got a plan for you. Proverbs 21:30 “There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the Lord.” Isiah 30:18 “Blessed are all who wait for Him.”
