GOD’S PLAN FOR MEN IS . . .

TO WORSHIP GOD

And you shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day. Then it shall be, if you by any means forget the LORD your God, and follow other gods, and serve them and worship them, I testify against you this day that you shall surely perish.

DEUTERONOMY 8:18–19

God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.

JOHN 4:24

The LORD is great and greatly to be praised;

He is to be feared above all gods.

Give to the LORD the glory due His name;

Bring an offering, and come into His courts.

Oh, worship the LORD in the beauty of

          holiness!

Tremble before Him, all the earth.

PSALM 96:4, 8–9

For the LORD is the great God,

And the great King above all gods.

In His hand are the deep places of the earth;

The heights of the hills are His also.

The sea is His, for He made it;

And His hands formed the dry land.

Oh come, let us worship and bow down;

Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker.

For He is our God,

And we are the people of His pasture,

And the sheep of His hand.

PSALM 95:3–7

The world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

1 JOHN 2:17

Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.

REVELATION 14:7

Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord.

We are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.

PHILIPPIANS 3:1A, 3

Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls.

HEBREWS 12:2–3

Now I, John, saw and heard these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things.

Then he said to me, See that you do not do that. For I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the words of this book. Worship God.

REVELATION 22:8–9

Exalt the LORD our God,

And worship at His footstool—

He is holy.

Exalt the LORD our God,

And worship at His holy hill;

For the LORD our God is holy.

PSALM 99:5, 9

GOD’S PLAN FOR MEN IS . . .

TO OBEY GOD’S WORD

From there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul. When you are in distress, and all these things come upon you in the latter days, when you turn to the LORD your God and obey His voice (for the LORD your God is a merciful God), He will not forsake you nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them.

HEBREWS 4:12

The law of the LORD is perfect, converting

          the soul;

The testimony of the LORD is sure, making

          wise the simple;

The statutes of the LORD are right,

          rejoicing the heart;

The commandment of the LORD is pure,

          enlightening the eyes.

PSALM 19:7–8

I understand more than the ancients,

Because I keep Your precepts.

I have restrained my feet from every evil way,

That I may keep Your word.

He is a shield to all who trust in Him.

PSALM 18:30

GOD’S PLAN FOR MEN IS . . .

TO COME TO GOD IN PRAYER

Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.

MATTHEW 7:7–8

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.

Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints.

For the eyes of the LORD are on the

          righteous,

And His ears are open to their prayers;

But the face of the LORD is against

          those who do evil.

Attend to my cry;

Give ear to my prayer which is not

          righteousness!

You have relieved me in my distress;

Have mercy on me, and hear my prayer.

PSALM 4:1

GOD’S PLAN FOR MEN IS . . . TO LISTEN

TO THE HOLY SPIRIT

As His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

2 PETER 1:3–4

But those who wait on the LORD

Shall renew their strength;

They shall mount up with wings like eagles,

They shall run and not be weary,

They shall walk and not faint.

ISAIAH 40:31

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

GALATIANS 5:22–25

Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying,

This is the way, walk in it,

Whenever you turn to the right hand

Or whenever you turn to the left.

ISAIAH 30:21

If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.

          If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.

          But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.

JOHN 14:14, 15–18, 26

Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.

          However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.

JOHN 16:7, 13

If the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

          The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.

          For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

          Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

ROMANS 8:11, 16–18, 26–27

Being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, which, He said, you have heard from Me; for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.

But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.

ACTS 1:4–5, 8
