Stay In God’s Plan - January 1st, 2023

(Discover God’s Plan And Fulfil It This Year)

By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome


TO THE BIBLE: “It was you who set all the boundaries of the earth; you made both summer and winter.”

(Psalm 74:17 NIV)



“Jeffrey, when you’re mowing the lawn, make sure you don’t go into Miss Matilda’s garden like you did the last time. Remember she wasn’t too happy the last time you did that.” “Okay, Mum. I will be careful this time. I’ll follow the boundary she’s set in place,” replied Jeffrey. “Good job, son!” Jeffrey’s mum praised.

Nobody can be more or do more than what God has allotted or assigned to him or her. In other words, you can’t achieve more than whatever God has planned and destined for you to achieve; you’ll not go beyond it.

Our opening verse says, “It was you who set all the boundaries of the earth.…” (Psalm 74:17 NIV). He set the boundaries that no one can go beyond. So, the wise thing to do is to discover what God wants you to do, and then, go all out to fulfil it.

God will always send you the Word that’s meant for you. He gives us the Word for the year, to guide our thinking, planning and actions. That Word is for you to live by; take it, and run with it. You can be as successful as God has ordained for you to be this year if you’d walk with Him by the Word, through the Spirit.

Real success is achieving God’s set goals for you at different levels of your life. Measure your success by what you do with the Word of God and how you live to fulfil God’s purpose for your life. Be definite about the things you want to achieve for the Lord and run with the visions He unveils to your spirit.

Take some time to fast, pray, and meditate on the Word for the year, and as you do, you’ll be better positioned to experience the victories and blessings ordained for you by the Spirit. The more you study the Word, the more you discover God’s plan for your life and know exactly how He wants you to live.

Go Deeper: Proverbs 19:21 MSG; Ephesians 2:10 AMPC; Ephesians 1:11

Speak: Dear Father, you’re able to carry out your purpose in me, doing superabundantly, far over and above, and infinitely beyond my desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams. You’re mightily at work in me, both to will and to do your good pleasure and delight. I’m guided by your Word to fulfil your purpose for my life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
