God’s Perfect Plan for You Comes From the Inside Out

God’s Perfect Plan for You Comes From the Inside Out


KENNETH: Thank you my dear Lord.
We come before the word tonight, expectant hearts, and we thank
you and I’m asking you for the anointing of God tonight.
Rise up and live big within me tonight, oh greater one, my
teacher, my comforter, my stand-by, my intercessor, my
strengthener. Thank you, Lord Jesus, that I speak this word
accurately and that the people are anointed to hear equally as
accurately, and together not one person in the sound of my voice
will leave this service tonight untouched by the power of the
living all mighty God. I pray it in the name of Jesus and I fully
expect it to come to pass. In Jesus’ name, amen. Hallelujah.
Well, we’ve been talking about developing a God inside me now
consciousness. Amen. The great creator in the beginning God.
Oh, glory to God. Let’s open our Bibles to the book of Genesis,
right at the very beginning. “In the beginning God created the
heaven and the earth. The earth was without form and void and
darkness was upon the face of the deep. The spirit of God
moved upon the face of the waters.” One translation said up
on the face of the deep waters. He was moving upon the face of
the deep. God said, “Light be,” light was. Hallelujah. The
spirit of power. And at the close of the first 24 hours,
16 billion, 74 million, 704,800 miles of universe in 24 hours.
Come on. Ah, come on. But now something happened before he did
that. Let’s go to Isaiah chapter 40. Thank you, Lord Jesus. This
was before the foundation of the world. Thank you Lord. Now
tonight I want to read this, a portion of this. All right.
Isaiah 40, now this happened before he said, “Let there be
light.” Verse 12, question, “Who has measured the waters in the
hollow of his hand, and measured out heaven with a span,
comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed
the mountains in scales and the hills in the balance? Who hath
measured,” this is the Classic Amplified, “Who hath measured
the waters in the hollow of his hand, marked off the heavens
with a nine inch span?” The first time I read that I quickly
grabbed a ruler. I have an eight and a half inch span. “Say,
well Brother Copeland, don’t you understand Jesus is a man? He
just gave us the dimensions of his hand.” A good amen
would have fit right in there. CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH:
Amen. Glory to God. Thank you Lord. “Weighed the mountains
in scales and the hills in a balance.” Think about it. One
drop of water and he weighed the oceans. When all the… he
had to plan the tides. When the oceans, if you could see it,
they heap up like that, like mountains and then they go back.
And then can you imagine what the Pacific Ocean weighs? God
can tell you to the ounce with one drop of water. Google will
never see the day. No, no human computer can possibly do
something like that. A piece of dust in the palm of his hand.
Come on. How do you weigh dust? Uh-oh. Oh glory to God. Hang on.
I got to get down there while I talk to you. Get down here
where I can look at you. Step on your toes. Get excited. Glory to
God. This is our God, the great planner. Come on. This is the
God that’s planning your life. This is the God that knew your
name before the foundation of the world. And he’s right there
on the inside of you right now. I’m telling you, he’s in there.
He lives there. And Jesus said when he comes he’ll abide with
you forever. Forever, ever and ever and ever and ever and ever
and ever and ever and ever, and then it’s just got started good.
Oh, hallelujah. CONGREGATION: Hallelujah. KENNETH: And you
know there’s coming a day, there’s coming a day… I
don’t think it’s very far away. There’s coming a day when all
of us are going to get together during the marriage supper
of the lamb, all of us get together, and we’re going to
go to school and get all the doctrines straightened out. Oh
yeah. Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Amen. And then the Lord, you know, I
mean you know, he’s been here, brother. He put up with this
mess. Think about the kind of doctrine he had to deal with.
Amen. He preached blessing. They preached curse. Anyway, it was
a doctrinal fight that got him killed. They thought. Oh the
glory, glory to God. He’s going to say, “Okay, now here’s the
way this was supposed to go, and here’s the way this was supposed
to go,” and all of us that want to get together for the first
time. No more questions. We got an eternity to think of more
questions and ask him, glory to God. And about the time you
think of one you think, “Oh, that’s the answer to that.”
Glory to God. Then you know what’s going to happen? This
doesn’t even sound reasonable. Then he’s going to praise
us. Read the book. Isn’t that what it says? Well, yeah. You
and I stayed with it. We came into
this pig pen down here and fought the good fight of faith
and wouldn’t quit, glory to God. And just stayed with him
anyway, and just let the devil hang himself,
praise God, who is he anyhow, zero. CONGREGATION: Zero.
KENNETH: Brought to naught. CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH:
Naught means zero. Glory to God. He’s been destroyed. He no
longer has the power of death. He’s over. CONGREGATION: Amen.
KENNETH: All he has left is the threat. I was meditating on this
one time and I had to… Jerry will remember this, I’d been
thinking about it and what I was thinking about is, we walk
through the valley of the shadow of death. We’re not walking
through death. We walk through the valley of the shadow of
death. Amen. CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: And I thought about it.
You know what? The shadow of a dog never bit anybody. And Jerry
came in, I don’t know, Jerry walked in there about the time I
was thinking about this, then he asked me some question. I don’t
even remember what it was. It was back in the very, very
early, early, early, early days when Jerry was just, you know,
hunting me to ask questions and everything. He asked me
something. I said, “Jerry, the shadow of a dog never bit
anybody.” And he thought, “The shadow of a dog never bit
anybody? What kind of revelation is this?” It’s big man, it’s
a huge revelation. Hey, hey, there’s a table prepared before
us. That’s not a heavenly feast in the 23rd Psalm. You don’t
have any enemies in heaven, glory to God, in the presence of
our enemies. But he can’t come to the table, Jack, glory to
God. Hallelujah, Jesus. He’s not… No, no. This is our
table. Pass me some healing. Pass me that bowl of prosperity
over there. Oh man, pass me that bowl of debt free life. Give
me that thing. Lick the platter clean. Glory to God, hallelujah.
Thank you Jesus. Amen. CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH:
The great planner. That’s what I want to talk to you about
tonight. Our lives, there’s the Lamb’s book of life, then
there’s the book of life. There you got everybody. The Lamb’s
book of life are those that know him, know Jesus as their Lord
and savior. We are a select group. Amen. Then there’s the
book of destinies. Now in that book of life, everybody is in
that thing, but everybody’s plan is in there. But you won’t find
in those life plans, you won’t find any sickness or disease.
No, God never planned that for anybody. CONGREGATION: Yes,
that’s right. KENNETH: Now we got selected out of there and
so we’re in the Lamb’s book of life, but that life book, that’s
destinies. Everybody’s life, all planned perfectly. Just laid
out. The devil’s not included in that. God laid that out before
the foundation of the world. And you want me to tell you
something else? God almighty could make everybody on this
planet, everybody ever supposed to be born on this planet, rich
beyond their wildest dreams all at the same time and never touch
his reserves. No. He said in my heart one day, he said,
“Kenneth, I’ve got a million ways, a million ways to make you
a billionaire. You can’t think of three.” Let’s see. Oh man,
somebody give it to me. Somebody give it to me. That’s how
limited we are. Now I get over in the spirit, start praying in
the spirit in tongues, that’s when you start praying those
things out because God had all these businesses planned for
you. He had all of these things planned out besides your
name before you was ever born. CONGREGATION: Yes. KENNETH:
Glory to God. Then you got in down here and you know, and
then the devil got in there and messed the thing up. But I want
to talk to you tonight about the great planner. The one that
weighs dust in the palm of his hand. Thank you, Lord Jesus. So
go with me to Genesis chapter 37. Praise God. Genesis 37.
“Jacob dwelt in the land wherein his father was a stranger, in
the land of Canaan. These are the generations of Jacob. Joseph
being 17 years old was feeding the flock with his brethren.”
So Joseph, just a young teenage boy, 17 when he had that first
dream. Just a kid had that first dream. Now then, turn to Genesis
37:20. You need to go through and just read all of this fluid.
We don’t have time of course to do that tonight, but I’m going
to point out some things to you here. 37, well let’s back up
before we get down that far. Verse 12, “His brother went to
feed their father’s flock in Shechem. Israel said to Joseph,
do not that brethren feed the flock at Shechem? Come, and I’ll
send thee unto them. And he said to him, here I am. And he
said to him, go, I pray thee see whether it be well with your
brethren, well with the flocks, bring me word again. So he sent
him out of the vale of Hebron and came to Shechem. A certain
man found him, behold he was wandering in the field.” He’s
lost out there. “He’s wandering in the field, the man asked him
saying, what seekest thou? He said, I seek my brethren. Tell
me, I pray thee, where they feed their flocks? The man said they
are departed here. I heard them say, let’s go to Dothan. And
Joseph went after his brethren and found them in Dothan.” Now
get the picture here. Here is a young 17 year old boy, highly
pampered. He’s never had to do a day’s work in his life. All his
brothers had to do all the work. Now you do understand that this,
they didn’t know it at the time, but this is the most
important family on the planet. CONGREGATION: Yes. KENNETH:
These are the tribes of Israel right there in that one
household. And they were really messed up. They didn’t know who
they were, of course not. So the first thing you see is this
little guy, I mean, he’s never been away from home. He
doesn’t know anything. He’s just wandering around out there and
he’s lost. But God had a plan. He already had somebody waiting
on him there. I’d rather debate the fact whether it was man.
It very well could have been an angel. But on the other hand, it
doesn’t make any difference one way or the other because God
already had the guy planned and already him moved around. Now,
may I remind you, the prophet Micah said there’s a baby going
to be born in Bethlehem. 715 years later that baby was
born right on time, right in the spot, and he had to put it in
Caesar’s mind… that word, put it in Caesar’s mind to have
everybody go back to their home town to pay their taxes. And
I may remind you of something else, poor folks don’t pay
taxes. Joseph, is a well to do man. He had to be in Bethlehem.
He had to be there and that word, that word spoken by
that prophet 715 years before, controlled armies, it controlled
nations, it moved people, it moved things, and right
until the very second, the very moment, the very absolute moment
in time that baby was born right in the right spot. Hallelujah.
CONGREGATION: Hallelujah. KENNETH: Praise God for
evermore. Oh, glory to God. Thank you, Lord. You talk about
a planner? A planner? The dust weighing God is planning your
life. How far back do you think the planning of this service
tonight? I’ll tell you, I’ve got it in my heart, I’m going to be
there. I’m going to be where I’m supposed to be. I’ll just seek
God and seek him and seek him and praise him and praise him,
because I found this out. A lot of times when you’re… Stand up
here Terri and help me a second. When you’re going your own
way, and you’re kind of bouncing around here and he’s doing his
best to bump you back over there on that line and you keep
fussing with him, and keep fussing with him. And there’ll
come a time when he’ll just let you go on. Come on.
CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: This is the God that planning
your life. This is the God that knew your name before the
foundation of the world, and he’s right there on the inside
of you right now. I’m telling you, he’s in there. He lives
there, and Jesus said when he comes he’ll abide
with you forever. ANNOUNCER: We hope you enjoyed
today’s teaching from Kenneth Copeland Ministries, and
remember Jesus is Lord.
