Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a future and hope.”
How many of us try to plan our own lives? Oh, probably just about all of us I would bet. And I’m just as guilty as anyone… But should we be? Of course we should take initiative and do something with out lives, but maybe we should just take a step back and wait to feel God’s hand pushing us towards the path He has.
I always thought I had it figured out – what I was going to do with my life, where, when, how, etc. But I have realized these are not my decisions to be made. They are the Lord’s.
While that frightened me at first, I now know that it is better this way. For who is smarter than the Lord? Stronger than the Lord? Loves me more than the Lord? no one.
Our dreams can still exist! Tell God your dreams, allow them a place in your prayers to Him; He will mold and shape them and make them aline with His amazing plan. God-given dreams will blossom into the life He is preparing for you.
How lucky are we all to have the most loving, brilliant, Creator of the Universe writing the humble story of our lives for us!
So today I will let go of all my fears and anxieties and them them to God – for He will take care of everything if I only let Him. How amazing the journey of my life will be if Jesus is the Pilot. I look forward to the ride and even more so the Ultimate Destination He is taking me to.
Psalm 138:8, “The Lord will work out His plans for my life-for Your faithful love O’Lord endures forever.”
May God’s love guide you through the special plans He has for your life today and everyday!
