But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.
For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews' religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it: And profited in the Jews' religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers. But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace, To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood: Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus.
The journey of our lives, our experiences, good or bad, all have come to make our way to God’s will and purpose for our lives. God when He created us, even from our mother’s womb, God had a plan and purpose. As we discover, through our experiences, the purpose and plan of God, we are revealed and God’s power through us to exercise authority to Drive Our Narrative toward what is His declared well-lived and joy filled life. Absolutely nothing in your life happens by happenstance or accident, it is all Divinely ordered. As a result of our ordered lives by God we must seek, through our relationship, with clarity, direction to move forward and command the things of our lives toward our promise. God’s Word is true and sure it is just up to us to operate in it and co-create with Him the promise for our life and life more abundantly. You and I can LIVE if we choose to and it is through our experiences that we grow into the full purpose of God. Do not hesitate to move in the faith of what God’s plan and purpose is for you by giving of yourself, including your ideas, thoughts, traditions, customs to the purpose and plan of God for you to LIVE. Paul, whose history would indicate that in no way would he be used of God to glorify Him and His purpose for taking the good news to the Gentile world but every step of Paul’s life lead him to God’s purpose and plan. Paul being sensitive to the God that he knew, grew and gave, and as a result glorified God. The same is true for you and I, release yourself and the stuff of your life to God’s clarity, fulfilling His purpose and plan for you to LIVE!
