15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace,
16 to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately confer with flesh and blood,
O Lord, I know the way of man is not in himself;
It is not in man who walks to direct his own steps.
The way you must go to reach your God-ordained destiny is not within the scope of your natural senses. Our opening Scripture tells us that the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man that walks to direct his steps. To direct your step by yourself is to stumble, for it is not in you (it is not within your jurisdiction) to direct your steps. Many have stumbled in life by trying to direct their steps. Those who choose their own way will only arrive at their own destinations, not their God-ordained destinations. There is a destiny which God has ordained for you; and there is a destiny which you may choose for yourself. The freedom of choice affords us the privilege to either choose God’s will for us or reject it. There’s a way the supernatural man must live. A spiritual man lives by the Word. The Word of God is the will of God. So, to be ignorant of the Word is to be ignorant of God’s will for you. Life truly begins at the understanding of the will of God for you. Don’t embrace realities outside of God’s Word. God has called you blessed, refuse to settle for less. Don’t let circumstances and situations of life tell you what God’s will is for your life. We are not led by circumstances. Romans 8:14 says “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.” Choose the Word.
God made you and He has a beautiful plan for you. Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” You are not a creature of accident. Your future is in God’s plan for you. It is sad to see how some people have subjected the outcomes of their lives to guesses. They do permutation and combination with their lives, doing guess work with their destiny. A man that God made in His image and likeness now subjects the whole of him to guesses. Little wonder Jeremiah cried out “O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.” Your steps ought to be directed by the Lord. You are here on earth for a divine assignment. Your life is a script written by God in eternity that is meant to play out in time. This means your life has been pre-ordained, pre-destined, pre-arranged before the foundation of the world. There is a path that you must follow, according to divine schedule and as you seek God through prayer and a diligent walk with Him, He will bring you into His will and plan for your life.
MY SOLID FRONT (YOUR CONFESSION):
Thank You Father, for the beautiful plans You have prepared for me before the foundation of the world. I declare that I will follow only Your plans all the days of my life. As I follow God, I will get to my destination in Him in Jesus Name. Amen.
