The Box of God's Plan, 2

March 8, 2023
How many of us have God’s plan for us in a box? We map it out, determine the most efficient path – life is good. The problem is life doesn’t stop there. And we serve a God that changes our plans. I had my life all mapped out - but God had a different map. And God’s map is motivated by His love, plotted by His wisdom and implemented by His power. He knows exactly how to get the very best out of me. And that's the plan I want to follow.

The innermost person of who we are – the heart. the core, the “guts” – you might call the operating system. It is the driving force of our mind and emotions – the driving mechanism of our core issues.  The flesh is our corrupt nature and it is still an operating system for many Christian’s lives. It wants to keep you in a box – keep you functioning the same way, relating to life the same way, and operating the same way.  But put no confidence in your flesh -don’t give it that much attention.

"The Christian Faith turns its redemptive energy into transforming the individual unto perfection and into transforming the present world order into the Kingdom of God." (E. Stanley Jones) It is a life lived above the World and its evil system. The world has no power over me; I do not need its security, its values or its manmade religion. I do not need its "normal". It is a life not driven by the flesh with its needs and wants - insecurities and fears. With this said, the devil has no place of attack in me anymore. Take the world and my flesh away from the devil; he is not left with much to work with. This is a life of freedom and absolute victory. In losing our life, we find it!

The problems we face are created within the realm of bios life - a life created in time. We are subject to this world system and all of its wickedness. Bios Christians are at the mercy of the wounds that the world system and its inhabitants inflict upon us. And unfortunately as Christians we are more often than not bios driven. We live much of our lives the same way the world does - not necessarily sinfully or immorally - but we live a life that is controlled by, influenced by and dominated by our bios existence.

About Tim Kelley

Tim Kelley, at the age of 18, surrendered his life and heart to Jesus Christ. After receiving his degree in Biblical Studies, he relocated to St. Petersburg, Florida. In July of 1989 he became the senior pastor of Grace Connection Church and launched a local radio broadcast called “Grace Thoughts”, a daily radio program broadcast in the Tampa Bay region http://wtis1110.com/ and is now heard at www.oneplace.com. Pastor Kelley is now in his 33th year in public ministry here in the Tampa Bay area. He is an avid sports fan of the Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots, and the Boston Celtics. As you may have guessed, our pastor grew up in New England in the Plymouth Mass. area. Pastor Kelley’s two greatest and heartfelt passions are teaching and preaching a clear gospel of God’s grace and its impact in our daily lives, as well as his love and compassion for people (even if they are not New England Fans).  Pastor Kelley has a Master’s Degree in Biblical Studies and is currently pursuing a second Masters in Counseling, graduating in May 2013.  He is happily married to his beautiful wife of 27 years, Peggy. They have one child at home, Sadie Lynne.  Their beautiful daughter Hannah Grace, in February 2012, went home to be with the Lord, due to a firearm mishap after a church service. Pastor Kelley and Peggy have started the Hannah Grace Foundation in memory of their daughter, which raises funds for the housing, care and education of children and young adults, here locally in the Tampa Bay region, throughout America as well as the third world.
