Think Again

It Is Written, Proverbs 16:9, a man's heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.
I guess that the majority of us would agree that life can be exciting, disappointing, happy, sad, and everything in between.
For many of us life is a real challenge.  We make plans for just about everything.  Some of them are successful, and some are a disaster.  Things that we feel should happen, often don't, and things that shouldn't, do.
Before we were born, God knew who would accept Jesus and those who wouldn't.  God came up with a master plan for each of us, based on what He knew of our ultimate decision.  He also took into account our free will.
As we follow our plan, we usually run into unforeseen obstacles.  While this is going on, the Holy Spirit is constantly talking to us, and trying to get us back on His path.  We can ignore Him and do it our way, or we can do it His way.
When we listen for the voice of the Holy Spirit, and choose to follow it, things become much easier.  Obstacles are removed, we meet the right people, and we are blessed.  The problems we face, we are able to conquer if we follow God's plan.
God has a way of getting back the people who are His.  Sometimes He lets us hit the bottom, because that is the only way our rebellious nature will come to realize that we need Jesus.
One last thing for atheists to realize.  Some of you will come to Jesus by choice, even though you don't believe in him now.  That also applies to all the Jesus haters.  Some of you will come to know the Lord too.
Kick and scream, rant and rave, Jesus still loves you and will forgive you, if you ask.  Have a blessed day.  Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me.  Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation.  Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
