The Light of Christ Journey

Encouraging people on their journey with Christ

Have you ever thought how the Holy Spirit helps me with God’s plan? The Lord has a plan for each of our lives. Ephesians 2:God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. 10 For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. [1]

You were created for a purpose, which is so amazing. As we mature in the faith, we desire to seek the Lord for the plans He has for us. The Lord has a plan for your life that is tailored just for you that fits your gifts, personality, and place in this world. This plan is unique to you. Paul urges us to follow God’s plan for our life. Ephesians 4:1Therefore I, a prisoner for serving the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God.[2]

The Holy Spirit Would Help John the Baptist Carry Out God’s Plan

God gives us the Holy Spirit to help us carry out His unique plan. The angel, Gabriel, tells Zechariah about the birth and mission of John the Baptist before he is born. God had a plan for John the Baptist, but it would take the help of the Holy Spirit to bring it to pass.

Luke 1:13Your wife, Elizabeth, will give you a son, and you are to name him John. 14 You will have great joy and gladness, and many will rejoice at his birth, 15 for he will be great in the eyes of the Lord. He must never touch wine or other alcoholic drinks. He will be filled with the Holy Spirit, even before his birth.

 16 And he will turn many Israelites to the Lord their God. 17 He will be a man with the spirit and power of Elijah. He will prepare the people for the coming of the Lord. He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and he will cause those who are rebellious to accept the wisdom of the godly.” [3]

The Holy Spirit Will Help You Carry Out God’s Plan for Your Life

The plan that the Lord has for your life is important and can impact many people to build the Kingdom of God. When we believe in Jesus as our Savior, the Holy Spirit comes to live inside of us. The Holy Spirit convicts us of sin and is also our guide that helps us fulfill the Lord’s plans for our life. Ask God to help you be sensitive to the work of the Spirit in your life. Be ready for His transforming power anytime, day or night. And remember that through Him, there are no limits.
