Discovering God’s Plan For Your Life by Gina Valdez

Discovering God’s Plan For Your Life

We were all created by God in His image. And when He created us, He had a plan and purpose for our life.

The bible tells us in Jeremiah 29:11, “‘For I know the thoughts that I think towards you,’ says the LORD, ‘thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.'”

We know that God’s plan for us is good, if we find ourselves struggling and stumble, this is what it says. In 1 Peter 2:8,

They stumble, being disobedient to the word, to which they also were appointed. (1 Peter 2:8)

It seems that when bad things happen people seem to want to blame God for it. It’s not God’s fault. He did everything to help us. He gave us His only begotten Son that died for our sins so we can have eternal life.

And He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again. (2 Corinthians 5:15)

He gave us the Bible, which has the knowledge to help us to have a good bless life and for us to fulfill the will of God. If we choose not to read it, to get the knowledge that we need, then that’s our own fault.

The Bible tells us in Hosea 4:6, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge”.

One of the plan that God has for us is for us to be saved and then be used for His Glory.

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. (Ephesians 2:10)

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. (John 14:12)

And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever. (1 John 2:17)

Our life here on earth is only temporary. We should seek God’s plan for our life as it will lead us to eternal life. This book has knowledge from the word of God to help you understand the plan that God has for your life. Once you have the knowledge you can apply it for a changed life.

My Journey to Discovering God's Plan for My Life

My Journey to Discovering God’s Plan for My Life

This book is about my life story. My childhood days, teenage years, and adulthood. It’s about my life before I was saved and all the struggles that I went through because of a lack of knowledge from the word of God that led to wrong choices and wrong relationships.

It’s a story of restoration from the Lord Jesus. From my story, you will discover how God changed my life and anointed me with His power to heal the sick, cast out demons, and use me for His glory to change other people’s lives.

If God can take someone like me with a messed-up life and turn it around and use it for His glory, He can use you too. I don’t know what you have been through, but I know that He can change your life too.

I would like to encourage you to surrender your life to the Lord and allowed Him to make something beautiful with it as He did for me.

How To Be Used For The Glory Of God (Part 9)

Author Gina Valdez shares part 9 of How To Be Used For The Glory Of God.

How To Be Used For The Glory Of God (Part 9)

This video is the first teaching on speaking in tongues. Here is the scripture reference for the lesson. Acts 2:1-4, Acts 2:5, I Corinthians 12:10, 1 Corinthians 14:1-3, Mark 16:17, 1 Corinthians 14:4, Jude 1:20, 1 Corinthians 14:5-6, Acts 2:4, 1 Corinthians 14:12, 1 Corinthians 14:23.

Verses Below:

When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. (Acts 2:1-4)

Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. (Acts 2:5)

(T)o another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. (1 Cor. 12:10)

Follow the way of love and eagerly desire gifts of the Spirit, especially prophecy. For anyone who speaks in a tongue does not speak to people but to God. Indeed, no one understands them; they utter mysteries by the Spirit. But the one who prophesies speaks to people for their strengthening, encouraging and comfort. (1 Cor. 14:1-3)

And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; (Mark 16:17)

Anyone who speaks in a tongue edifies themselves, but the one who prophesies edifies the church. (1 Cor. 14:4)

But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit… (Jude 20)

I would like every one of you to speak in tongues, but I would rather have you prophesy. The one who prophesies is greater than the one who speaks in tongues, unless someone interprets, so that the church may be edified.
Now, brothers and sisters, if I come to you and speak in tongues, what good will I be to you, unless I bring you some revelation or knowledge or prophecy or word of instruction? (1 Cor. 14:5-6)

All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. (Acts 2:4)

So it is with you. Since you are eager for gifts of the Spirit, try to excel in those that build up the church. (1 Cor. 14:12)

So if the whole church comes together and everyone speaks in tongues, and inquirers or unbelievers come in, will they not say that you are out of your mind? (1 Cor. 14:23)

Author Gina Valdez shares part 8 of How To Be Used For The Glory Of God

How To Be Used For The Glory Of God (Part 8)

Continuation of How To Be Used For The Glory Of God, this is the second teaching on the Holy Spirit. Make sure you watch How To Be Used For The Glory Of God Part 7 for the first teaching. Here are the scripture references for the lesson. Luke 11:9-13, Mark 16:15-18, Genesis 1:2, John 16:7-11, John 16:13-14, John 14:10-12, Mark 1:8, Acts 2:17-18, Ezekiel 36:27, John 14:13-21, John 14:26, Psalm 143:10.

Verses Provided:

“So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
“Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” (Luke 11:9-13)

He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.” (Mark 16:15-18)

Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. (Gen. 1:2)

But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment: about sin, because people do not believe in me; about righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer; and about judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned. (John 16:7-11)

But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you. (John 16:13-14)

Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves. Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. (John 14:10-12)

I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.” (Mark 1:8)

“‘In the last days, God says,
    I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
    your young men will see visions,
    your old men will dream dreams.
18 Even on my servants, both men and women,
    I will pour out my Spirit in those days,
    and they will prophesy. (Acts 2:17-18)

And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. (Ez. 36:27)

And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.
 “If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—  the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.” (John 14:13-21)

But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. (John 14:26)

Teach me to do your will,
    for you are my God;
may your good Spirit
    lead me on level ground. (Ps. 143:10)

How To Be Used For The Glory Of God (Part 7)

Author Gina Valdez shares part 7 of her series, How To Be Used For The Glory Of God

Training classes: How to be used for the Glory of God (Part 7)

In this lesson of How To Be Used For The Glory Of God, I will teach on the Holy Spirit. Here is the scriptures’ reference. Acts 1:2-5, Acts 2:1-4, Acts 2:5-6, Acts 2:13-18, Acts 2:36-41, Acts 19:1-6, Luke 3:16.

Verses Provided:

(U)ntil the day he was taken up to heaven, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen. After his suffering, he presented himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God. On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.” (Acts 1:2-5)

When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. (Acts 2:1-4)

Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken. (Acts 2:5-6)

Some, however, made fun of them and said, “They have had too much wine.”
Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd: “Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you; listen carefully to what I say. These people are not drunk, as you suppose. It’s only nine in the morning! No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:

 “‘In the last days, God says,
    I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
    your young men will see visions,
    your old men will dream dreams.
Even on my servants, both men and women,
    I will pour out my Spirit in those days,
    and they will prophesy. (Acts 2:13-18)

“Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Messiah.”
When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?”
Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”
With many other words he warned them; and he pleaded with them, “Save yourselves from this corrupt generation.” Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day. (Acts 2:36-41)

While Apollos was at Corinth, Paul took the road through the interior and arrived at Ephesus. There he found some disciples and asked them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?”
They answered, “No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.”
So Paul asked, “Then what baptism did you receive?”
“John’s baptism,” they replied.
Paul said, “John’s baptism was a baptism of repentance. He told the people to believe in the one coming after him, that is, in Jesus.” On hearing this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. When Paul placed his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied. (Acts 19:1-6)

John answered them all, “I baptize you with water. But one who is more powerful than I will come, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.  (Luke 3:16)

How To Be Used For The Glory Of God (Part 5)

In Part 5, Gina Valdez Shares How To Be Used For The Glory Of God

How To Be Used For The Glory Of God Part 5

This lesson is on, Are you serving the right Jesus?

The Lord gave me this message to warn you to exam yourselves to see which Jesus you are serving. If you are one of them that is serving the false Jesus you will have an opportunity to know the truth after watching this video and make a swift to the real Jesus and be qualified to make it to eternal life. If you have the real Jesus you won’t be living in the flesh and worldly, if you are then you have the false Jesus.

Verses Include:

Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you are disqualified. (2 Corinthians 13:5)

“And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32)

In the last days, there will be the coming of the lawless one which is Satan working with all power, signs, and lying wonders. There will be another Jesus being preached in the last days to deceive many. This Jesus will promote lawlessness and images and idols of Jesus. Some will claim to see Jesus make sure they are not preaching a different Jesus and make sure their beliefs are from the word of God.

Verses Include:

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs and lying wonders. And with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. (2 Thessalonians 2:9-10)

“For false Christs! And false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. (Matthew 24:24)

But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he who comes preaches another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted–you may well put up with it. (2 Corinthians 11:3-4)

There are some people that call themselves Christian and they have a false Jesus too. There are two kinds of Christians also, there is the religious one that doesn’t live or serve the Lord, they are the lukewarm ones, and living in the flesh, world and for themselves and haven’t died to self. The Lord is going to vomit them out of His mouth because they are not hot and on fire for Him.

Verses Include:

“I know your works, that you neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. “So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.” (Revelation 3:15-16)

There is also another group that follows the false Jesus. There is a Jesus that the Catholic likes to worship. That Jesus comes in the form of an image and statue, which is idolatry. A person that has idols is considered idolaters. According to the dictionary definition, idolatry– the worship of idols, images, or anything which is not God; the worship of false gods.

Verses Include:

‘You shall not make idols for yourselves; neither a carved image nor a sacred pillar shall you rear up yourselves; nor shall you set up an engraved stone in your land, to bow down to it; for I am the Lord your God. (Leviticus 26:1)

Do not turn to idols, nor make for yourselves molded gods, I am the Lord your God. (Leviticus 19:4)

God does not want us to have any gods before Him, we should not make ourselves a carved image or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or any images of any form at all, not a form of females or males, that includes Jesus too.

Verses Include:

“Lest you act corruptly and make for yourselves a carved image in the form of any figure: the likeness of male or female. (Deuteronomy 4:16)

‘You shall have no other gods before Me. ‘You shall not make for yourself a carved image–any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. (Deuteronomy 5:7-8)

Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry. (1 Corinthians 10:14)

The Bible informs us to repent and turn away from idols otherwise we will end up in the lake of fire.

Verses Include:

“Therefore say to the house of Israel, “Thus says the Lord God: “Repent, turn away from your idols, and turn your faces away from all abominations. (Ezekiel 14:6)

“But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderer, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” (Revelation 21:8)

To be used by God we need to die to self and be like Jesus. When we become like Jesus it won’t be you living but Christ living in you.

And He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again. (2 Corinthians 5:15)

We need to glorify God in our bodies.

Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s. ( 1 Corinthians 6:19)

How To Be Used For The Glory Of God (Part 3)

As Christians, the Lord wants us to separate ourselves from the unbeliever. This also includes family members that want to continue living for the devil. Then the Lord will receive us as sons and daughters. Please see 2 Corinthians 6:14-18

Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? 15 What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? 16 What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said:

“I will live with them
    and walk among them,
and I will be their God,
    and they will be my people.”

17 Therefore,

“Come out from them
    and be separate,
says the Lord.
Touch no unclean thing,
    and I will receive you.”[d]

18 And,

“I will be a Father to you,
    and you will be my sons and daughters,
says the Lord Almighty.” (2 Corinthians 6:14-18)
