Stay In God’s Plan - A Nugget of Gold - By Dr. Luauna Stines
The price of rejecting the knowledge of God is far more than one can bear. We understand many walk in darkness and may be blind to the God’s Word. I too was once blind, until someone shared God’s Word with me. The eyes of my understanding were then opened to His light, the Truth that changes a heart and makes them brand new.
Many even called Christians, don’t believe God’s Word. They might believe some of God’s Word that pertains to their blessings only. But when it comes to something that goes cross grain against the desire of one’s flesh, the battle begins! God who gave His Word to Adam and Eve, yet Eve wanted the fruit. Satan deceived her and blinded Eve to the Truth. It is so important we study, we need to know Satan’s tricks or schemes if not we can become a victim of defeat, and become trapped in a web of darkness and deception.
Satan has a plan, he blinds one from the end result. I want to share a true story of a young woman a while back who came to our church. She was so talented, gifted, and could attract people to herself. For a year she was doing great. Leaving her old friends, and finding new ones. Then her old friends started calling her. She thought she would just hang out with them for a little bit. But in time she was hanging out with them more and more. She was still coming to church. One Sunday morning I noticed from the other side of the building something was up with her. I motioned to one of our workers I asked them to stop her before she leaves; I want to talk to her. She slipped out of the building; my assistant didn’t catch her before she drove out of the parking lot.
II Corinthians 6:14 “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?”
John 10:10 “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
Let’s remember and never forget Satan always has a plan! He has always wanted what belongs to God.
Ephesians 6:12 “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”
Long story short, the following week, I didn’t see her in church, sending someone to check on her. They found her ready for church, dressed and almost out the door, when she decided to sit in a chair by the door. She shot up a bag of heroin her old friends gave her, that day she overdosed and died. She was amazing, beautiful, and God had a great plan for her life.
Don’t allow your old friends to influence your life or steal God’s plan right out of your hands. Hold on dear saints, God loves you so much. We live in times of great temptation, don’t give in. Fight the good fight of faith.
