God has a plan and a purpose for each and every person alive on the planet Earth. However, the only people with any hope of fulfilling God’s plan for their life are those who personally know Jesus Christ, are forgiven and are following Him as a disciple doing as He has commanded and as He guides and directs.
These disciples have a song in their hearts that God has placed there. It is a song that God has written that speaks of what His plan is for their life – His purpose for them while living on planet Earth. He wrote the melody and the words and placed them in the disciple’s heart. Only that disciple can sing his or her song. No one else can sing it for them. If you are a disciple of the Lord and truly following Him – you have a song in your heart as well – and only you can sing the words to the tune that you were given. Only you can fulfill God’s plan and the purpose for that plan for your life. No one else can do it for you and, if you fail, no one else will do it after you. It is a unique song for you to sing.
I believe the greatest sin is to die having never sung your song – fulfilled your God-given dream. I believe that if your song is not sung and heard by all then it is because you have boxed God in and limited what He can do in your life. I have always believed that. I believe that too many disciples of the Lord have never let God out of the box that they built for Him. That most have severely limited what they can do for Him and what He can do through them by forming a god of their own imagination and then boxing Him in and not truly living by faith believing that with God “all things are possible.” Many have never said, as Mary said, “let it be done to me according to Your Word.” Many have allowed fear to keep them from stepping out in faith and risking everything – you heard me right … everything – for Him and His cause.
There is this young guy whose book I recently read while flying to Kazakhstan He travels the world encouraging people to believe in the Lord and lives a life of faith and adventure (they go together) and who has learned that with God all things are possible. You see, he was born without arms or legs … no limbs. And yet he has done things people might deem impossible for a man with such limitations. I like what he wrote in his book. He wrote, “When you give up on your dreams, you put God in a box. After all, you are His creation. He made you for a purpose. Therefore your life cannot be limited any more than God’s love can be contained.” Nick Vujicic.
I just want to yell – Preach it brother!!!!
So, you what is your excuse for not singing your song and keeping God in a box?
