We’re building a building right now. And already, there have been countless hours and an enormous amount of money spent on just BLUEPRINTS!
At first, I was totally freaked out! But ultimately I understood. Without a clear-cut PLAN we’d never be able to build what we envisioned.
Do you realize that there’s a DIVINELY DESIGNED blueprint for YOUR life?
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord, “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 NLT
Designed to be Different
Inner peace is a result of coming to terms with His plan for our life. A plan that is just as individual and UNIQUE as a thumbprint.
However, the enemy has a way of getting us OFF TRACK by focusing on the progress of the guy next door.
If we compare what we’re building to what someone else is building, we may begin to DOUBT our own success.
No one else knows what our individual blueprint looks like. The fact is…we’re not all building the SAME thing. Thank God for that!
It’s okay to be proud of OUR progress and what we’re building together with God.
Maybe we could stop here and examine our own personal blueprints and seriously think about this? (Have you got a minute?)
What areas are we HAPPY with? Is it the children that we’re raising? Is it our special connection with God? Is it a goal that we wanted to reach… and we did?
And what areas do we need to CHANGE?
As a pastor, sometimes I counsel deeply depressed and angry people. I’ve found that if our actions DON’T match up with our original purpose, it can really drive us crazy.
We were NEVER built for that!
When we eventually get to the root of serious problems; almost always, someone is engaging in behavior that DOESN’T LINE UP with their internal blueprint. (That’s life-changing revelation right there.)
God is in the details.
Rome wasn’t built in a day. We may have obstacles and challenges, minor modifications and project delays.
But one thing is for sure. His DIVINE blueprint for our happiness is precisely accurate!
I call you blessed!
