Let me hold fast the confession of my hope, without wavering for He Who promised IS FAITHFUL! (Hebrews 10:23)
I am very thankful for the connection with God's Master Plan for Your Life class. It has shown me that God REALLY does have a plan for me. It's just up to me to choose to walk it out. I have to choose to TRUST God, and believe what He says and thinks about me. When I do that and am careful not to let in the doubt, keeping the door shut to the devil, I am able to stay focused, avoid distraction and let God move on my behalf - allowing Him to show me what He has had for me.
The thing that helped me the most was Psalm 139 as outlined in Session 1. God has been using that psalm to work out a lot of hindrances that have been blocking me from fully walking out His Master Plan in my life for the past year. It really drove it home when I read it in the New Living Translation.
You watched me being formed in utter seclusion...You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed (verses 15-16). Exit hindrance No. 1. I am definitely not the "accident" I was always referred to as being.
How precious are Your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! (verse 17) Exit hindrance No. 2. He loves me and cares about me and THINKS about me constantly.
There is so much more, but let me summarize by saying this class, and Therese's teaching of it, has been exactly what I've needed at exactly the right time in my life. It has allowed me to let God love me as a Father, which has opened the door for me to allow my Pastor to be my father as well. I now see that I could never have come to the place where I am ready to be married until I was able to really receive love from a man and my Heavenly Father. As a result, I've learned to love and like myself!
Thank you, Gloria Copeland, for writing the book and turning it into this study guide. Thank you, pastor and Therese, for bringing it to us in this way. Thanks also to the person who blessed me with the actual book prior to the class even being announced! Just look what the Lord has done! Look at how much He loves ME!!
