Fresh Hope – 12th August 2017

Everyone has a plan and purpose for their lives.. It’s a God given plan. Yet, we all have free will as to whether we choose to live it out or not.
God is the one who made us, whether you believe that or not, He did. He knows you better than you know yourself and HIS plan for you is IDEAL. He is your Maker.

You can buy a new car and totally ignore the manufacturer’s¬†instructions if you’d like. You can try putting Coca Cola in the fuel tank, instead of petrol or diesel, but you won’t get very far. Because the maker knows best.
It’s like that, with the life God has planned for you.

Some time ago, I went to speak to a group of women who had in the world’s eyes ‘made a mess of their lives’. Some had made mistakes that had life altering effects on them. Yet, the beautiful thing was, they had all got one thing in common – they¬†had realised their mistakes and returned to ‘The Maker’s Instructions’. Each one had devoted their lives to God and now it was as if their lives were brand new. They were living out purposeful and rich lives.

You see, God isn’t fazed by where you’ve been and what you’ve done. He welcomes your return with open arms.

The sooner you realise that God’s plan is actually perfect, the sooner you can live fulfilled and purposeful.

Refer to the Maker’s instructions.
