Jeremiah 29:11- for I know the plans that I have for you, says the Lord, plans for peace and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
We are born, we grow up, the teenage years come and we begin to make plans for our lives and our future, convincing ourselves that we know what is best.
I too had plans for my life and thought I knew what was best for me too, but God had another plan.
What happens when we have one plan for our lives and God has another? Whose plan will we follow?
In growing up over the years, we begin to ponder on which college we will attend, which degree we will pursue, which career we will pursue, who to marry, where to live, what car to buy, what home to buy, how many children to have and on and on with one plan after another for our lives.
Most of our younger years are years of planning.
My question to you on today is "what happens when all of a sudden your dreams and plans fall short of your expectations"?
Planning for tomorrow is good, but not good without the advise, guidance and direction of God.
When God leads the way, His Word becomes a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path that leads down a different road from that which we have already mapped out for ourselves.
Only God knows the plans for our lives that will lead us to fulfillment in Him. His plans are always best for us.
God's plan for our lives are plans of peace and not evil, plans of a future with Him and hope in our wait for Him.
In following God's plan we will end up at our expected end that God has already mapped out for us in eternity with him.
Remember this, regardless of the detour, God's leading will assure us of getting to His destination for our lives safely.
Who's plans are you living out in your life? Your plan or God's plan?
If you are living out your own plan, it is one that is temporary. I invite you to try God's plan for your life. His plan is eternal, full of hope, joy and peace that is unspeakable, even in the midst of life's storms.
When God has another plan! Yes, His plan is not our plan.
When God has another plan. Is His plan your plan? God declares that He knows the plans He has for you. Will you seek Him on today>
God bless and I love you all.
