Preparing to carry out God’s plans may call for unique actions, but it will never require you to do anything you are incapable of doing. You may have to make some drastic changes or alternations in your walk. What God calls you to do, He enables you to do. When you doubt your ability to carry out a God assignment, just focus your mind on the positive claim of the Apostle Paul, “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13).
We walk with God by faith, not through doing the Doables. This important point is made abundantly clear in Romans where Paul writes, “For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law” (Romans 3:28)
Accepting God’s Plan of Salvation is the initial step in achieving God’s three-part spiritual plan. The second step is God’s Master Spiritual Plan that leads to the abundant life and a walk with God. The third step is developing a Personal Spiritual Plan that includes actions that maximize your gifts, abilities, and talents to help point a neighbor to a walk with God.
Unlike business or personal goals that have a definite time frame for achievement and completion, God’s Master Goals are ongoing. By their nature, they cannot carry specific finishing dates. Although you never “arrive” at these destinations, you still need to review your progress on a regular basis to ensure that you are making progress toward the goal.
While on earth, Jesus said, “I must work the works of Him who sent Me” (John 9:4a). At His Ascension, Jesus entrusted this assignment to His followers. Christians are commanded to continue the works of God.
Tomorrow arrives all too soon. Therefore now is the time to put together your spiritual plan to ensure that you have the tomorrow you want. Think for a moment and answer this question: What I am doing right now going to help me walk with God? As the Psalmist wrote, “This is the day which the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalm 118:24). Today is the day to apply the lessons of these articles so that you may Walk a Walk Worth Walking, WALK WITH GOD!
THE END IS ONLY THE BEGINNING
“The reward of walking with God is not rest, but opportunities for more service.”
