God's Plans Revealed In You

God is not silent.  

"For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse." - Romans 1:20

The world needs to know that God is not silent.  He's revealed himself in so many ways.  We often make things more complicated than they need to be.  So many people who are fascinated with the concept of a God wonder why he's so quiet when in reality he's more visible than we often acknowledge. What many of our friends and neighbors need is a simple nudge to look at the creation of God in a new way.  What's more readily available to observe than ourselves?  

Often when we consider this verse in Romans 1, my mind jumps to thinking that "what has been made" are the stars, the mountains, the powerful ocean.  I have to recalibrate myself quickly and remember... it's not just those things... it's all of creation.  You and I need to keep in mind that in God's eyes we are the center of his handiwork.  Everything was created for us to enjoy.  So learning more and more about ourselves is also learning how God is speaking through our unique wiring.  

Sometimes people think finding God's plan is akin to fairy dust.  I think things are a little more straightforward.  We don't have to "find" it so much as look at all of the signs he's already given.  God has his fingerprints in your DNA... in my DNA.  Learning who you are, what you're good at and not good at will help keep your frustration down and your thankfulness up.

I encourage you to take time in worship today studying the people, places and created things around to asking "God, please show me yourself in all of this."  Also take some time to learn more about how you're uniquely created to not only perform certain tasks with excellence but more importantly to reflect God's glory in a specific way.  The more you see how you bring glory to Him, the more you'll find peace in not trying to do the job as someone else.  

God's plan and design is amazing.  He's not silent.  Far from it... He's ready to share more of His plan with you if you'll just pause and observe. Have fun worshipping today!
