Obedience Leads to a Perfect Plan

TheSingleBlessing.com - celebrateFor as long as I can remember, each new year has found me reviewing the past 12 months, developing a plan for the next 12 months, and somewhere within the next 4 months I gain a new interest (generally yard work)!   Well, needless to say, in 2011 I’m not hanging on to that tradition.
 
Life - at times - is overwhelming and can certainly, depending upon your frame of reference, be unfair.  From a personal stand point, life drives me.  At this point in my life, I tend to be focused on what I should do as a Christian single, and more often than not, I’m focused on what I should do as a strong Christian woman.  As this New Year approaches, I must admit that I have a feel for a “brand new ride” in life.  I’m definitely bracing myself for the excitement and challenges that I know will be placed before me.  For me, 2011 is not about losing weight, or any of the other humanistic accomplishments.  It’s about where I’m placed in the scheme of things in God’s ultimate plan.
 
You see, In God’s plan I have come to the realization that His will is where I am comfortable.  Yes, there are times that I think I “need a right now answer”.  And yes, there are certainly times that I feel like the last piece of bread in the bag.  But when I put self aside and accept His answer (which is the best answer), I feel so much love and comfort from Him. 
 
In my spirit, I feel that this New Year is full of hope and surprises.  My only plan is to be obedient to His Word and to listen intently for His instructions.  I hold dear to my heart Genesis 6: 14-16.  In this passage, God provides explicit instructions for Noah to build the 3 story ark.  Not only did Noah listen intently, but he built it as God designed it.  Noah was obedient and the ark was perfect.  Because of his obedience, Noah’s family was spared from the flood.  Because God was pleased with Noah's obedience, a covenant was made with him. God promised Noah and his seed that He would remember the covenant - that the waters will never flood the earth again destroying every living thing. Genesis 9:8-16.
 
The same holds true for us today.  When we allow ourselves to break away from the tv, i-pod and other gadgets that pre-occupy our time, we are then able to hear from God and receive His perfect instructions.  Operating in His will we are given a perfect plan -  - A plan that provides peace, joy and understanding.

Keeping in mind, my brothers and sisters, there may be times when His plan includes hard work and diligence.  I always keep Noah as a reference point.  His hard work, diligence and commitment placed him in the book of Genesis, due to an assignment that he accepted from the hand of God.     
 
 
 
For this New Year, I pray that you receive His peace.  Trust me, there is nothing like the perfect peace of God. 
 
Happy New Year and much love to all of my brothers and sisters in Christ.
