A Life of Significance

If you’re like most people, you spend your days just trying to survive. You’ve probably said things like, “I’ve just got to get through the day,” or “Will this day ever end?” Now I know you’ve had those bad days and, sorry to say, you will probably have a bad day or two in the future. That’s life! But just getting by is not what God has planned for you. His plan for your life goes far beyond survival. His plan is one of significance.

But just getting by is not what God has planned for you. His plan for your life goes far beyond survival. His plan is one of significance.

Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Now doesn’t that sound like a great plan?

I want that kind of life. Don’t you? Yeah, I thought so!

So how do you tap into this plan that God has for you? The first thing you to need do is submit your life and plans to God.

Proverbs 16:3 says, “Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed.” Do you want to succeed in life? Then commit your plans to God.

When you commit your plans to Him, what you’re saying is, “God I’m not so good at this life planning thing. In fact, most of my plans end up in utter failure. I want to move from a life of survival to significance. I need some help. I need your help.”

If you begin to think, pray and live this way, get ready for a radical life change. You see, when you give God permission to plan your life, He does a good job.

The Bible keeps no secrets about God’s designed significance for your life. The problem comes in when you keep your plans a secret from Him. People often think, “Oh man this is going to be really good. I love this idea,” only to leave God completely out of it. Then they wonder why they fail.

If you really want a significant life change, then you have to stop leaving God out of your plans. And if you really want your life to succeed, you have to commit your plans to Him.

The reality we all must face is that God is the only One who knows what’s best for us. He wants you to live a life of significance.

Live on purpose,

Pastor Zac
