Topic: God’s Plan for Our Life
Today’s Scripture: 1 Peter 2:1-12
In Touch Daily Devotions | 12 January 2022 | By Dr. Charles Stanley Message
Many Christians today want to find God’s plan for their life but, sadly, often overlook the one place it’s revealed—the Bible. His overall goal for each of us is that we would bring Him glory, and He uses both His Spirit and Word to accomplish this.
Today we’re going to focus on three ways we glorify God.
1. With our behavior. Righteous living stands out in stark contrast to lifestyles of the world around us. Godliness shines like a light pointing others to Christ and bringing glory to the Father.
2. With our character. God’s purpose is to conform us to the image of His Son. As the Spirit’s fruit is produced in us, we display Christ’s likeness in our attitudes and responses to people and situations.
3. With our obedience. Scripture reveals what God has commanded and how He wants us to live. When we do what He says, we glorify Him.
We usually focus on finding God’s plan for our life with regard to circumstances, relationships, and other practical matters. But the Lord’s priority is our spiritual development. When we obey what His Word reveals to be His will, He’ll sovereignly direct our path in every other matter.
Bible in One Year: Genesis 39-41
Thought for Today: We may wonder what God’s plan is for our life, but we can be certain it includes our spiritual development.
