God’s Master Plan For You

"As the time drew near for God to fulfill his promise to Abraham, the number of our people in Egypt greatly increased. Then another king, who knew nothing about Joseph, became ruler of Egypt. He dealt treacherously with our people and oppressed our forefathers by forcing them to throw out their newborn babies so that they would die."At that time Moses was born, and he was no ordinary child.

           Acts 7:17-20

If you look throughout the Bible, we see God’s blue print about the people of Israel. It started out with one man…Abraham and still continue to grow like a great Nation. During each level of his plan, He has raised men, at different times to deliver the people. The promise given to Abraham had to be fulfilled and so Israel had to be moved to Egypt. For that God used Joseph and worked through the ups and downs of his life and finally brought him to the palace of Egypt. This led his family to move to Egypt. There they lived for many years and grew in number. The promise given to Abraham was not yet fulfilled…They suffered terrible bondage..but when the right time came, God allowed Moses to be born in this world and chose him to be the deliverer of His people. He used Moses to fulfill His promises given to Abraham….THE PROMISED LAND. Next came Joshua, after the lifetime of Moses..He was also part of God’s Master plan in the deliverance of God’s people.

Do you realize that you are a part of His master plan? Your current place in this country is not an accident. The time of your birth, the place you will grow up, the people whom you will associate with, the members of your family, the challenges that you went through , your workplace and your colleagues…they are not accident…all these are predestined in His master plan.

Just like the people of Israel, we are His new Jerusalem….His chosen generation. We have an important part in His blueprint. God is working with everything around us so that we will reach the promised land. Are you able to see His hands working for you? When it is time to fulfill His promises regarding you….you will see that the troubles are more…you will find yourself facing lot of challenges…This is usually Satan’s trick to prevent you from receiving what you are called for. He knows that somewhere..very soon, a Moses is going to be born…a deliverer is on his way..so he plans to destroy that birth….Do you perceive the spiritual meaning of our key verse?

We have a promised destination…and we are on our way. Each day, with or without our knowledge, God is fulfilling our promises which will help us make each step to the Promised Land. And that troubles Satan….. He knows that with God’s help, we will make it..So he plays a lot of tricks with us…He sends us pain and trials of bondage, increases our struggles in this world so that deliverance will not be birthed in us. Satan will send us a lot of troubling experiences so that faith will not be born within us…He will try sending tempting circumstances so that self control will not be given birth…He knows that at that particular time, if a particular virtue is born in us..it will help us in our walk to our promise..

Today, if you are going through some kind of pain, struggles or challenges and you do not know the reason for it..Take heart..Your promise is almost at the verge of fulfilling and you are at that stage of giving birth to your deliverance. Moses was born in a time where all the babies were killed. He was raised by his parents only for three months..He had to be placed in the waters so that Pharaoh’s daughter had to raise him and the promise about him had to be fulfilled. All this was part of God’s master plan…and so are you. You are not an accident in that unfavorable situations of life. When you find life really hard and unfair, remember a deliverance is on its way. For that, God might use a colleague, a neighbor , someone or something in your life..to give birth to a deliverance that will help you on your way to your Promise. Remember, the ONE who is holding your hand is a PROMISE KEEPER.

God Bless,

    • Thank you for your comments Debbie…Everyday.. its a joy to read all my friends’ blogs…because God uses each one of them in different ways in my life..
      I’m glad that I found your blog….You are a blessing.

      God Bless,
      Rani

  2. wow Rani,
    This thought has been on my mind all day, if there are no trials, there is no deliverance. If life is smooth, the devil doesnt feel threatened by you, and a deliverance isn’t necessary. God Bless Sis

    • Jim,
      Devil is not bothered if we are not on our way to the promised land..When he sees us advancing in that path…he is threatened…that is when he tries his level best to pull us back…But our God uses all that situations to work out the best in us…and helps us make steps one at a time with Him.

      God Bless,
      Rani

  3. Rani, What a wonderful devotion! We do experience trials that God uses to shape us and help us grow in our faith. Satan tries to trick and waylay us, but he must get permission from God (see Job ch. 1), and God will not allow Satan to try us more than we can handle. God knows our heart and our faith, and uses Satan’s own attempts to derail us to our advantage and to the furtherance of His kingdom. Peace, Linda

    • Thank you Linda. Reading your comment, God reminded me a verse..All things work together for good to those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. Even if Satan tries to mess it up…God will work it out for our own good in our walk to the promised land.

      God Bless,
      Rani

  4. There is travail before the birth of a child who brings bundle of joy to the mother and the family. Child is created with definite DNA & RNA. To see the fruit of the union two cells take its time, and its due time, fulness of time, brings happiness.

    • Thank you for reading….God’s master plan for each one of us is unique and special. And one day, I hope we will make our Heavenly father happy.

      God Bless,
      Rani
