Fresh Hope – 20th January 2018

Did you know that God’s plan for your life is perfect?
Yet unfortunately, many people mess up in life. They make mistake after mistake. Someone said “if you make the same mistake more than once, then it’s not a mistake, it’s a decision.”

The simple thing in life is to work out where you went wrong and try not to do it again. Ask someone to help you, ask God Himself.

If you left the tap on every time you left the house, you’d probably get a flood. You wouldn’t need a plumber to tell you that, it’s just common sense.
Sometimes the things we do are obvious and others can easily see them.
However, some of us don’t like to live by rules, yet when we don’t, we make a mess of things.

God has perfect rules for our lives.
You may say “I don’t like rules” – yet you should always listen to the One who knows best.

Like the plumber when he tells you to turn the taps off when you leave the house , or the electrician who tells you your wiring is dangerous, or the pilot who says we have to land in Ireland, instead of Canada, because there is some fault with the plane. We trust experts opinions and advice, so why do we have problems following the best guide book in the world – The Bible?

It doesn’t matter how much of a mess you have made of your life, or how many mistakes you have made.

Jeremiah 29 v 11 – God knows and has a wonderful life planned out for you, one to bless you and not to harm you, one to give you hope and a future.

As a parent you will give rules to your children, rules that they may see as ‘unfair’ at the time, yet you know that they are for their best.

Don’t be offended by God’s rules. See them for what they are. Ways for you to be blessed and successful in everything you do.
