God loves you and He has a plan for your life. You are a wonderful creation made by God and you have a unique purpose to fulfill in this world. Ephesians 2:10 (AMP) says that as Christians, “we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].”
It’s so exciting to know we are each created with a purpose and God has a good life that He has prepared in advance for us to live. But it’s important to understand that we have an enemy, Satan, who wants to keep us from having the life Jesus died to give us. Satan has a plan for us, too, and his plan is destruction and death. John 10:10 (AMP) says the enemy “comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).”
The good news is we have everything we need through Christ to overcome the enemy. We just have to know who we are in Christ, believe that we have His authority, and know how to release the power God has given us.
The Measure of Your Faith
Faith in God is required for us to release the power and authority we have in Christ. Romans 12:3 (NASB) says, “…God has allotted to each a measure of faith.” This means God has given you enough faith to do His will, whatever it may be and no matter what the enemy throws at you to stop you.
There are many challenges and difficult situations we have to face in life. You may have a child with special needs to care for, or maybe you’re in a difficult marriage. You could be facing a devastating illness or have serious financial problems. Whatever your situation is, God has given you everything you need, through Christ, to keep you moving forward in His plan for your life.
