God Has a Plan for Your Life

Divider

For I know the plans I have for you.

Jeremiah 29:11


Have you ever had a plan B just in case your plan A fails? But what happens when plans C, D, and E fail as well? We can get caught up in our own plans—to be married, to have children, to be gainfully employed, to move to another location, etc. However, some or all of our plans don’t happen even remotely as we desired. Married couples get divorced, couples struggle with infertility, people lose their jobs, and some of us move to a worse location.

It’s disappointing when our plans fail because we thought God’s plans and ours were on the same level. If we aren’t careful, we may fall into the lie of believing that our lives don’t have any plan or purpose. However, there are plans; but they are God’s plans for us. His plans were sealed before we were even born.

God’s plans take in everything—our strengths and weaknesses, our victories and failures, our mistakes and accomplishments. Because He is God, He can turn every situation in our lives for our good. Our responsibility in God’s plans is to trust Him even when everything looks like a great mess.

The first step in trusting in God’s plan is to relax. We need to take a deep breath and remember that He is faithful to fulfill our purpose in Him. When we resist anxiety and pray for His help, we find a different level of peace that we’ve never experienced.

The next step is to take the actions taught in His word. We need to let go of our temporary plans and trust in His infinite one. We need to sacrifice our desires on the altar of God’s will. In doing so, we find that our plans ultimately align right where God wants us.

Prayer

Dear God, I want Your plans to be my plans and Your will to be my will. Help me to release all of my plans into Your faithful hands. In Jesus’ name, amen.

In His Service,
