Purpose in your plan.


When Jesus completed the last supper he said it was finished the purpose of the plan that God had for his life on this earth He completed.

Little acts of obedience lead to big changes. I Believe this statement works for our lives and it works in other's lives. We have to make the power of God personal to us and then in turn to others

In John he said that all who receive him he'll give them the power to become sons of God. Why? So that we too could lay our life down and have authority and power over evil on this earth.

In Matthew Jesus said go and make disciples teaching others to have a mind that is stayed on God. So that person will find peace and consistency in their life and they'll find fulfillment.



Acts chapter 8 begins with Paul making havoc on the church, but God must have thought I could turn his life around. Philip went and preached to those who were scattered by the Havoc that Paul created. Those that had worked for the devil and seen sorcery and have been amazed begin to tell others to listen to Philip. Signs, wonders and miracles were demonstrated that caused people to believe in Jesus Christ.


Philip made the story of Jesus personal to the man from Ethiopia. An angel asked them to get up and go for a walk. That little act of obedience led to the Ethiopians' salvation.


When the 70 returned with joy realizing that the devils were subject to them they rejoiced and Jesus said tell you something even better rejoice at your name is written in the lambs book of Life.


I hope you to can rejoice because you have made God personal in your life and little acts of obedience demonstrate the change that has taken place in your life.

What's A example on how God was made personal to you?

Well looking back there has been several times God has been bye my side.we think about God heeling us physically and he has for me like others but how ever he heeled me spiritualy and emotionally as well I think that's just as important as physical healing.but for a example for physical healing it was with my leg I was told by other doctors that I may have to live with the way my leg was and my leg continued to get worse until God put a doctor in my path that new How he could help and with God's help from the doctors they succeeded and the next…

John,

I loved your statement: “Well just keep growing with God's word in my life and realize that it won't be easy but we need to remember we are not alone and let God lead as we trust his processes”.

It‘s all so true. What’s the saying “if it were easy everyone would be doing it” 😆 but you really hit it on the head that we are not alone, and knowing that He is a personal god who loves us and has set others with us on this fantastic journey makes trusting Him a touch easier and that much sweeter because He really does have our best interest at heart.

What's an example of how God was made personal to you?

One of my favorites was when He miraculously healed my foot. I had stepped on a nail or something outside, and it subsequently became to the point that it was painful to walk and stand (talking barely putting pressure on it was awful let alone moving about on it). The next day happened to be a Sunday, so we gathered together for worship. I could barely walk but felt beyond a doubt that I was supposed to dance in worship. Gods love is so amazing! I danced and showed love and honor for Him, and by the end of the day my foot was completely healed. It was one…

There’s a couple milestone landmarks on my journey where God was made personal to me. I’ve shared before: one when I had pain in my thumb/wrist that was very much shaping up and looking like it was going to be a chronic issue for the rest of my life. Good spoke through Bishop the very day the pain was swelling and I got healed when I responded. Have not hurt since. Now when I look at the scar on my wrist (from surgery to put a screw in there), I’m reminded of that testimony and personal moment with God and not my stupid actions that caused the break. The other was when I heard clearly God telling me to go…

OMGosh! When I grow up I want to preach like Ps. Aaron! It was simply amazing how every piece of the message was so well put in its proper place to get to a purpose in the plan! Well Done! I was so proud of my Pastor!


What's an example of how God was made personal to you? Well, where would I begin! Way back when or now? OK now.... I had decided to retire back in March or April. In the back of my mind I was thinking I would systematically "clean out" my room little by little. Now mind you, I kept a lot of things based on the fact that I never knew what I might be…

Love this post!

Thank Rev. Connie for bringing out the statement from Ps. Aaron about "The Church has tried to silence the Gospel". I heard that too and felt a little like you and then yep, it's true--the real gospel has not been told in many of "churches" and evangelism certainly isn't a focus like it should be because people have become so "self" focused. I also love what you said, "The obvious things to keep my connection with God is to keep myself hungry for the Word, fully engage in worship in and out of the church, assemble in prayer and for Sabbath teaching, but mostly knowing that the connection is critical for others!" I appreciate how you said…

God has been may personal to me in different ways. He has healed me several times. Taken away pain from my hands, healed nerve pain in my leg, delivered me from pain that would drop me to my knees when it hit. He gave me peace through a situation where someone very dear to me could have died and been removed from my life. He has delivered me from emotional distress and pain that people cannot overcome on their own. He is so GOOD!


I continue my connection and relationship with God by remembering what He has done and being truly thankful for those experiences. I like to spend time quietly with Him, reading the word, listening for Him, and…
