Dear Partner

“Why am I here?”, “What is this all about anyway?”, “Is there any purpose to my life?”

These are some of the soul-searching questions that have plagued people for centuries.

Jeremiah wrote in Jeremiah 1:4-5,

Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying: 5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”

Think about that for just a moment… God knew you before you were even formed in your mother’s womb. And He had a plan for you. No one is born “by accident”. It may have been unplanned on some parents’ part, however, the life that was formed as a result came from God. And God sent that person, you, me or anyone to this earth with a specific plan in His mind.

One of the reasons so many people are struggling and battling with life is that they are not walking in the place that God has designed for them. It would be like asking a fish to walk around on land. It was designed for the water. On land, it looks like it is useless…and would either be flopping in the process of dying or die very quickly.

Drop that same fish back in the water and in seconds it will swim away with expertise and ease!

If we could discover the plan that God has for us and chose to obey Him and walk in His call and purpose, we would be able to handle our situations with expertise and ease. It does not mean that we would never have any problems again, but when they came we would know how to walk through them successfully or solve them. To someone watching, it would look like you made it look easy. They may even say something like, “He/she was born for this”.

How then will I know this plan?

Last month we looked at our ability to hear God’s voice. God has not left us as orphans but wants to be a part of leading you to your success. Just before Jesus was to go to the cross for us, He told His disciples in John 14:15-18,

If you love Me, keep My commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.

A Helper! The Holy Spirit is our helper. Jesus called Him “another” Helper. In other words, He would be able to help them just the same way Jesus did while He was with them on the earth. Jesus could lead them, teach them, feed them, heal them… in fact I cannot imagine the disciples having any problems for any length of time while they were with Jesus.

And Jesus said that the Holy Spirit would do the same for us. Look at John 16:13-14

However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. 14 He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you.

HE WILL TELL YOU THINGS TO COME! All we need to do is spend time with Him and He will guide us and teach us.

I encourage you today, if you have not yet discovered God’s plan and purpose for your life, set some time aside and worship Him thanking Him for His guidance in your life. Then listen…listen for His guidance. Over a period of time, or even immediately, He will prompt you and lead you…guiding you along His plan and purpose. And when you see His will manifesting in your life you will experience the greatest joy knowing that you too can say, “I was born for this!”

Thank you to all our Partners who stand with Janine and me. Together we are walking out His perfect plan for this ministry. As you sow your seed this month, declare this, “This seed enables the plan and purpose of God to preach the Gospel to be fulfilled. And I thank God, as a part of this great plan, I receive my harvest to continue walking in His plan and purpose for my life!”

Please remember, we love you and pray for you every day.

You are blessed,
