Part 1: Wonderful plans for you

(This is part 1 of 10 parts in this class)


God has plans for you. They are the "plans of His heart". (Psalm 33:11) They are plans for you to have a future full of well-being and a knowledge of His care for you. They are plans He longs to see you benefiting from but He can't carry them out without your involvement in them.

God needs your co-operation and your active participation in His plans in order for them to happen for you! He's got to have you working with Him on His plans.


Apostle Paul wrote to the Corinthians about this,

Each one will receive his own reward according to his own labour. For we are God's fellow workers.

1 Corinthians 3:8b - 9a - NKJV


Jesus sends to you His Holy Spirit with this in mind. As a believer, the moment you receive the Holy Spirit, the Spirit begins to disclose to you God's plans. At the same time He begins to reveal to you how marvellous they are and to guide your participation in those plans so that you may prosper.

The Holy Spirit is God's discloser of His plans, His revealer of His intentions, His guide in His ways. God's Spirit has been given to us so that we may know the things that are freely given to us by God. Paul taught this by inspiration of the Holy Spirit in his first letter to the Corinthians.


He wrote,

God's Spirit is with us to reveal the things of God to us. We must know how His Spirit communicates with us so we can receive these revelations.

Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him. But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit...Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.

1 Corinthians 2:9-10, 12 - NKJV
