God's Plan For You
God’s Plan For You
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” -Jeremiah 29:11
Sometimes God makes his way clear, and when he does, we need to guard against demanding other answers or being given more options and walk in obedience. It is easy to understand He has a plan for our lives because that is in keeping with His nature. He didn’t create us, drop us into the world and say, “Do the best you can.” He has a special plan and purpose for every believer. He relates to us as individuals and gives each one of us unique spiritual gifts and callings. Let go of the life you planned, God has a better life waiting for you.
Jeremiah reminds us that God has plans for us, there are even prosperous ones.-Ephesians 1:11 Stop second guessing His clear signs as to which way to go. So often it is as simple as turning away from closed doors and walking through others flung wide open. God has a plan for every moment of your life. Every day that you live and survive is through God’s mercy and grace. He saves your life daily so you can serve and praise Him tomorrow. Through His Word and the Spirit, He is saying, “I am reliable, I created you and saved you, I have a purpose and design for your life, and I will support you and enable you to accomplish all I have in mind for your life. Trust ME, I will never leave you.” You may not understand His plan but He is with you.
“Therefore, do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised”-Hebrews 10:35-36
Father God, help me pay attention to clear signs you provide regarding my future. Help me see your ‘no’ as ‘no’ and your ‘yes’ as ‘yes’ that I may enter the doors you open for me. Amen.
