FOREKNOWLEDGE “WORTH CONSIDERING” 5/15/19 (Across my desk this morning.)
“You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.” (Psalm 139:16, NLT)
The Next Chapter
Did you know that God has already planned out every part of your life from the beginning to the end? He knows every disappointment, every loss, every challenge; and the good news is, your story ends in victory! God has written out a plan to bless and prosper you. Your final chapter concludes with you fulfilling your God-given destiny. Here’s the key: when you go through a disappointment, when you go through a loss, don’t stop on that page in your life. You have to decide to keep moving forward. There’s another chapter in front of you, but you have to be willing to take the next step. Sometimes, we get so focused on what didn’t work out that we stay stuck, reliving the disappointment. If that’s you, recognize that you’ve been on that page long enough. It’s time to let it go and turn the page to the new chapter God has in store. You may not understand, it may not have been fair, but remember, the next chapter is full of blessing, full of favor, and full of victory! Make the decision to let go of the old so you can move forward into the abundant life God has in store for you!
A Prayer for Today
“Heavenly Father, thank You for the good plan You have for me. Today, I lay aside the disappointments of the past knowing that You have blessing in store for my future. In Jesus’ Name. Amen”
Sound like predestination but it is not. Simple, God is “I AM” and living in a different dimension than we are. We are living in the dimension of time. HE lives in the dimension of eternity. Another scripture that is similar and needed for understanding is found in Rom. 8 which includes the word “Foreknowledge.” This means that before the first energy of GOD was created to become matter and atoms and DNA and you that GOD already knew the choices that you would make and that those who would want to live in light, love, faith and righteousness and would need HIS help due to the choices of Adam. So even before the world was Created, Christ Jesus was in the planning of redemption due to the misuse of free will. So even though Adam caused the whole of the human race to be born spiritually dead GOD made provision for those who would choose for HIM, TRUTH, LIGHT and Righteousness and provided for their redemption.
So actually, “Who so ever will may come and drink of the waters of life freely.” So it is totally up to you as to staying in the darkness or coming into HIS light. GOD already knows what you will do but you don’t. So each day is a choice for walking towards the light of God or in walking in the lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes and pride of life and ending in absolute darkness for eternity. It is totally your choice to have a life of eternal blessing or eternal rejection. So, already, through foreknowledge, knowing your choices in light, HE has extended mercy, grace and answers to your prayers that are in HIM even before you pray. But our Creator God is much more interested in our spiritual growth than in our comfort zone. That is why it took a while for Paul to receive his eye healing. God was helping Paul with his spiritual pride issues.
In the past year or so, my body, this old house I live in, has gone through a very painful and incapacitating time. For a long while I could not even drive nor walk very far. My lack of balance made me appear to be drunk at times. And all this while I was selling an Inn and relocating to Kealia. And the new property had to have a total overhaul and remodel. I have learned a lot over the past year or so concerning God’s loving grace. And today I am running at about 70% again, Gardens are in, stairs are going in for a guest loft. Wife is happy with the gardens and new home and seems a new day is dawning with the Friday Bible fellowship gatherings. So hope to finish the testing for this grade level soon with good grades and go on to the next. This temporary dimension of time was created by GOD as a place where we could learn to experience free will without destroying the universe. When the 7,000 years allotted for us in this dimension of time is complete, GOD will take out the trash and burn all of it and have created a Heavenly Family of Righteousness in HIS IMAGE and LIKENESS in a very clean new solar system. Even the space junk will be trashed. You will want to live there, for sure. And today, the door is wide open but you need to get into the Maker’s Manual (Bible) for yourself and make sure you are on track, and keep on”The Way” with the Holy Spirit.
Yours, in HIS great love and wonderful Grace and Mercy, Ken<>< www.Trinity-Aloha.org
