hqdefault“In and out of situations, that tug-a-war at me, all day long I struggle For answers that I need. Then I come into His presence, all my questions become clear and for a sacred moment, No doubt can interfere.” (Vicki Yohe In the Presence of Jehovah) My friends, “in His presence for a sacred moment all of our questions become clear.” But then at the end of that sacred moment, how do we remain focused on this journey Christ has placed us on.

Remember God is patient with His Children, not wanting anyone to perish. But sometimes He puts us to sleep before we have fulfilled His plan. I have witnessed many funerals of friends and love one’s in the past few years and most died in the Lord and at that moment they crossed that finish line, praise the Lord. So now it’s personal, because we must ask ourselves, entering the kingdom of God one day, is that all we should be seeking.

God knows the plans and thoughts that [He] has for [His elect],…plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster [but] to give [each of us] a future. Samson allowed Satan to continue to keep his focus on the desires of the flesh and the things of this world. And I can say with no reservations, that no matter what Samson did for the Lord throughout his life it was just not enough because he did not live to His life’s full potential that God had planned for Him.

And it was not enough because those few sacred moment He spent with God, was never about completely destroying self, while allowing God’s Spirit samsonto take full control and transform him into the image of Christ. But friends he is still among the hall of fame elect of the Bible’s patriarchs and prophets in Heb.11:30-40 (NKJV) who “through faith subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions.

And also quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword and out of weakness were made strong, became valiant in battle, turned to flight the armies of the aliens….were tortured, not accepting deliverance, that they might obtain a better resurrection.” My friends, God has a plan for our life and it can’t be just about getting to Heaven. In the midst of the noise of this world God is telling us He is the vine; [and we] are the branches.

imgres11Whoever abides in [Christ] and Christ in them,….must bear much fruit, for apart from [Christ] we can do nothing. ”John 15:15 (ESV) So our life must be all about doing the will of God while bearing much fruit. And during this short probationary period between life and death that is granted to His children must be lived in understanding God’s plan for our life that is laid out in His word as we allow God’s Spirit to guide us in all truth and understanding.

Samson last words before he died were “O Lord God, please remember me and please strengthen me just this one time, So Samson in spite of how he lived His life, in the end, gave it all to the Master. “And the dead whom he killed at his death were more than those whom he had killed during his life.” Judges 16:30 (NKJV)

My friends, what would we be saying about Samson today if he had lived his life completely as God had planned. And what about the thief on the cross and what about you and I. God has a plan for us, we just have to listen for his voice and follow it. And each day as we serve God, say to ourselves, I want to fulfilled God’s plan for my life then my reward will be heaven.


Every excuse we may give as the reason we cannot serve Christ, was challenged and answered at Calvary.
