God’s Plan
April 08, 2024
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare[b] and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 (ESV)
There are some people who are very detail oriented. Before they can start anything, they need to know exactly what the plan. Once the plan is put into motion there cannot be any deviating from the plan, or they will not be able to function. Then we know people who go into some things with no plan at all, and they just hope things work out for the best. It does not make a difference if you are a planner or not, because God always has a plan and a purpose for our lives. We may not always understand the plan or the purpose, but we can rest assure He has one. The Scripture reminds us that God knows the plans that He has for us, and they are for our good. I encourage you today to remember that no matter what you are facing or what you are going through in your life, God has a plan for you. It may be difficult right now, but God has a plan for you. You may not know why things are happening like they are happening, but God has a plan and purpose for all that you go through. Keep trusting God and allow Him to lead you in all situations and you will find that in the end, God knew what He was doing. I know God has great things ins store for my life, and I may not always understand what He is doing or how He is doing it, but I do know that it is for my good, and His purpose for my life will bring Him glory. Since I know that God has a great plan for my life, I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”
Lord thank you for the plan that you have for my life. As I walk in my purpose, I am reminded that you are with me, and you know what you are doing. I trust you and I love you Lord. In Jesus Name Amen.
