His Plan Is Greater

We love God on two levels: Positionally, “we love him, because he first loved us” (1 John 4:19), and experientially, we love Him by allowing the Word of God to dwell richly in our hearts (Colossians 3:16).

Without the Word dwelling richly in my heart, I can never understand the plan of God. The Word of God reveals the will of God for every believer. It allows me, as a believer, to choose to live in God’s permissive will. But once I repent and forsake my sin, God overrules the consequences of those negative choices and works them together for good.

As the Word of God dwells in my heart, I will begin to understand grace, and my conscience will control my thinking. God’s plan is greater than our sin, greater than our iniquity, greater than our mistakes, greater than our failures, greater than our successes. His plan is greater than every single thing about us.
