Yesterday, we discussed some divine insights to help us fit ourselves into God's plan for our lives.
Today, we progress by saying that it is also important to note that you need to FIGHT OFF EVERY TEMPTATION TO YIELD TO THE FLESH AT THE EXPENSE OF SPIRIT-LED GUIDANCE. The flesh has always presents itself as an impairment and roadblock to the discernment of God's leading. Hence, succumbing to the flesh will cause you to lose sight of God's plan and would also lure you to back up the wrong tree.
The flesh will suggest to you offers that appear to be low hanging fruit but are actually forbidden fruit. If you eat such, you would render yourself as unfit to pursue and keep within God's plan for your life. Eve failed to fight off the temptation that was schemed to put her in opposition with God (Genesis 3:6). She bit on the bait the devil prepared for her and lost her place in the Garden of Eden.
Finally, deciding to FOLLOW JESUS WITH UNDIVIDED LOYALTY would set you on the journey to fit yourself into God’s plan and also to fulfil His plan for your life. Consumed with the desire to offer up Himself as the ultimate sacrifice for sin, Jesus fit Himself into God's plan. He made His personal desire to avoid death to fall by the way side, and allowed God’s will to prevail in His life (Luke 22:42).
It's worthy of note that those who follow Jesus wholeheartedly cannot be misled and swayed away by ungodly counsel. They are persuaded of God’s counsel because they have God as their Light (Psalms 27:1). Also, when the enemies make effort to rock their boat, they entertain no worry because they are assured of God's presence with them.
Hence, don't allow the devil nor your flesh to seduce you from pursuing God's plan for your life. God's plans for you are thoughts of good and not of evil (Jeremiah 29:11). May you enjoy the bliss and peace that comes from fitting ywerself into God's plan as you journey through 2019 in Jesus name.
