Pastor Paula White-Cain shares her personal testimony and God's plan of salvation for YOUR life...

God's Plan For Your Life
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” JOHN 3:16 (KJV)

WHY AM I HERE?

Most people live their entire lives without ever knowing “Why?” They exist year after year with no idea of why they live or God’s purpose for their lives.

The most basic question a person can ask is, “What is the meaning of life?”  

WHAT IS HAPPINESS?

Everyone wants to be happy. People try many ways. Some look for happiness by acquiring possessions. Some look for happiness by experiencing pleasure. Some look for happiness by gaining prestige and power.

But real happiness comes from understanding your purpose in life.

God made you and loves you! He has a personal and purposeful plan for your life! God wants you to live your life to the full. Why then aren’t most people really happy? 

WHY AM I NOT HAPPY?

Man has a natural desire to be the boss and ignore God’s principles for living. The Bible calls this attitude sin. Sin keeps us from a close relationship with God. It causes us to fear God and try to live our lives outside of His will. When our relationship with God is not right, it causes problems in every area of our life – marriage, career, relationships, finances, etc.

“For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.” Romans 3:23 (NLT)

“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23 (NLT)

NEED FOR SALVATION

Romans 3:23 (NIV) says it this way: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Knowing Jesus is simply acknowledging your need for Him, believing what He did for you and accepting His amazing gift. It recognizes that you can’t live this life on your own, that you’ve sinned and are in need of a Savior.

And the good news about knowing Jesus, about being saved, is the beautiful exchange that happens in that moment. You give Him all the bad and sinful things you’ve done, and in return, God gives you everything He has for you. Whether you know it or not yet, His plan for your life is amazing, and this is the first step on that journey.

PLAN OF SALVATION

“No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God's seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God.” 1 John 3:9 (NIV) 

Because of the power of being born again, a new spiritual life and changes begins to happen in our lives. You will never completely overcome while here on earth, but there should be a change from “glory to glory” as time passes and as you grow closer to Christ. You’ll see progressive, mature growth as a believer and experience victories in Him!

Once we are born again, we have a new spirit and therefore new desires. This enables us to resist temptations, overcome sin and live to God! By His Holy Spirit and the power of the blood of Jesus, we are becoming holy. The reason why we can do this is because we have been born of God.

There is a permanent break from the ruling power that once dominated our lives. We now have been awakened spiritually and have power to overcome all things through Christ Jesus!

PRAYER OF SALVATION

Father, it is written in your word that if I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in my heart that you have raised Him from the dead. I will be saved. Therefore, Father, I confess that Jesus is my Lord. I receive Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and make Him Lord of my life right now. I renounce my past life with Satan and close the door to any of his devices.

I am a new creation in Christ Jesus. I have a new life in Christ, old things have passed away.

I thank you for forgiving me of all sins by the blood of Jesus. I am saved and justified by faith. Jesus became sin that I might become the righteousness of God.

I am now your child, God. I have been born again and am made new in Christ Jesus. Holy Spirit, help me to live the life that God has for me.

HOPE FOR A BRIGHT FUTURE

Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) tells us: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Isn’t it comforting to know there’s a plan for your life? Regardless of what’s happened along the way, regardless of the wrong turns and missteps, God has been leading you to this very moment. In fact, He’s been leading you right to Himself. The fact of the matter is your ultimate hope and future both lie in Him.

That simply means, you can live your whole life with and for Jesus. And because of Him, because of His promise to never leave you or forsake you, you’ve now got something to be very excited about!

WHAT'S ARE MY NEXT STEPS?

You may be asking yourself, What do I do now that I’ve accepted Christ? It’s a great question as you’ve taken your first step. Though today you may not feel any different, know that Christ has started working on the inside of you.

Colossians 2:6-7 (NIV) says, And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness. Those roots are established along the way through prayer, the reading of God’s Word, the Bible, and allowing the Holy Spirit to lead and direct you.
