"For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11 NASB

The Lord has a plan for each and everyone of His children and no two plans are alike! And in Scripture God has revealed His will that applies to all of His children alike. His commands and promises are all through out Scripture and in some of the epistles of the New Testament several elements of God's will for the body of Christ are grouped together. Today's example comes from 1 Thessalonians chapters four and five.

1 This is the will of God, your sanctification, abstain from sexual immorality
2 We are to stay alert and sober, wearing the breastplate of faith and love
3 Encourage one another and build one another up
4 Appreciate those who have charge over you in the Lord, pastors, teachers
5 Live in peace with one another

6 Warn those who are lazy
7 Encourage those who are timid
8 Take tender care of those who are weak
9 Be patient with everyone
10 Never pay back evil with evil

11 Strive to do good to each other and to all people
12 Always be joyful
13 Never stop praying
14 Be thankful in all circumstances
15 Do not stifle or quench the Holy Spirit

16 Do not scoff at prophecies
17 Examine everything carefully
18 Hold fast to what is good
19 Stay away from every kind of evil
20 Walk in a manner pleasing to the Lord

21 Excel still more in your life as a believer
22 Never ever settle in your pursuit of the knowledge of Jesus
23 Love one another
24 Put on the helmet of the hope of salvation
25 Share these things with other believers

All these are God's will for you in Christ Jesus!
