God always has a better plan for you.
He always sees a better outcome for you when you give yourself over to the true meaning of His intent.
So, what is His intent for your life?
Where His Word says “Why do you labor for that which doesn’t satisfy…..” then He must have a plan for your life that will meet the greatest level of satisfaction than you can ever imagine.
If His Word is saying to you “I have seen his ways and I will heal him….” then the LORD has a great remedy He will manifest that will restore and heal, the broken ways of someone’s lifestyle.
If His Word is saying to you “I know the thoughts I have toward you, thoughts of peace and not of evil,to give to you a future and hope…” then the true meaning of what He is saying to you would be, “Come unto Me all who are heavily laden, and I will give you rest. Come and learn of Me for I AM meek and lowly in heart and you will find rest for your soul.”
His true meaning would also say, “Be anxious for nothing, but in prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God that surpasses all understanding, will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”
Then what would be the true meaning of Jesus Christ dying on the Cross of Calvary?
What was His intent?
The true meaning of His intent is in what He said in John 3:16.
“God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son; so that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world, through Him, would be saved”.
For this purpose was the Son of God manifest; to destroy the works of the evil one.
The evil one, your adversary the devil, has been roaming around your life keeping you from knowing God’s intent for you because that enemy, the evil one, fears the power that you will possess; because his work against your life has been totally destroyed by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
When you come to fully realize what this means, you are truly going to give yourself over to the true meaning of God’s intent. “Get behind me Satan. You do not savor the things of God but the things of men!”
The true meaning of the LORD’s intent for your life is “for the eyes of your understanding to be enlightened so that you will know the hope of your calling.”
The true meaning of the LORD’s intent for your life is:
“That Christ will dwell in your hearts by faith, so that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend what is the width,the length, the depth and the height, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge. that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Now to Him Who is able to do far above all that we could ask or imagine, according to the power that is at work in us, unto Him will be all the Glory in the Church by Christ Jesus, to all generations, now and forever, Amen,” (Ephesians 3:17-21).
Give yourself now into the true meaning of His intent, for He Who calls you is faithful, and He will do it.
