God’s Divine Plan (Exod 7:1-7)
We are to carry out God’s divine plan according to His pre-determined will. God will reveal and also prepare us to carry out His divine plan. However, He will only reveal certain aspects of His divine plan to us so that we will not be overwhelmed by the tasks and become discourage. God knows how much we can bear and will only reveal enough of His plan so that we can answer His call and do His work. There are 3 aspects that we need to consider when we carry out God’s divine plan.
We too are representing God when we carry out God’s divine plan. As God’s representatives, we must exercise the godly authority that is vested in us. We are to defend and not let others undermine this godly authority. We must make a stand and not give in to the world’s standard or norm which can greatly impact our Christian testimonies and ministries. We must remember that this godly authority is given to us so that we can carry out God’s divine plan. Thus, we must be careful not to let pride come in. We are but representatives of God, and must never act according to our own plan, experience or opinion, but purely according to what God has commanded in His Word.
When we carry out God’s divine plan, we must know the scope of our responsibility. This will enable us to have the right focus, i.e. what God wants us to do according to His Word, and not on the results or things which we have no control over.
