God's Will vs Your Plan
Just as you can't serve two masters, you can live out two plans. And in both instances one or the other is happening in your life.
Jesus speaks of two masters: God and Money...God, or Creator, Lord, Lover of our soul. Then there is money. The bible says that the LOVE of money is the root of all evil. First let's understand that Money (a created thing) is not evil it's the LOVE it. Why? Jesus said: Man can't serve two masters lest he LOVE one and HATE the other. Jesus said: "And you shall love the Lord your God out of and with your whole heart and out of and with all your soul (your life) and out of and with all your mind (with your faculty of thought and your moral understanding) and out of and with all your strength. This is the first and principal commandment." (Mark 12:30 AMP)
So you see the conflict? It all depends on which plan you are going after as to whom you are serving. If, in our very finite minds, we can come to understand that there is no plan we can develop, with our own wisdom that's more conducive for our lives than what our Creator planned for us.
He is the Potter, we are the clay. Tell me how can the CREATED thing know what's it's designed to do better than the one who created it? It can't...it's simply gone conform to whatever it's called. For example, a broom is made for sweeping..so in its greatest moments, most productive moments is while bring used to sweep. Though ppl may use it for other things, it does not take away the fact that it's purpose for being created was to SWEEP. So is it with us.
God has a plan for your life, and I don't care what you find yourself doing, it's only when you are doing what the Creator Purposed you to do..you are not being your GREATEST SELF.
Now I know it can be hard. And this is usually when "our" plan kicks in. Our plan has us SETTLING, and relying on our HARD work, and then we attempt to pass it off as if it's Gods will, yet it's not so. Because the blessing of The Lord makes us rich and adds no sorrow(toil) with it. Meaning all Gods plan require is a tongue willing to speak what the heart has been meditating on by the spirit, through faith. The glory belongs to God, and yet when we walk in our own plans we get the glory, not God.
Know that GREATNESS comes with an adversary! Since the garden the devil was after Christ to attempt to destroy Him. And yet Jesus, committed to walking out God's plan, no matter the circumstance has given us eternal life to all who accepted Him as Lord.
So no matter what is happening in your life, if you have discerned by the Spirit of God, the will of God for your life...don't allow anything to cause you to walk away from it. The enemy greatest desire is for you to renounce the plan of God, to walk away, to find it to hard to continue. If you call on Christ, and ask for His wisdom, and GET OUT OF YOUR EMOTIONS, you can walk out Gods plan.
He loves you! All He ask is that you love HIM enough to trust Him with the life He created.
