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
Somedays you wonder, what is my purpose, what is my destiny? But God has a plan for you. He has not forgotten or ignored you. Timing is everything, we need to learn to follow Gods timeline and not our own.
When we make our own plans for our life, we don’t fulfill our destiny. What we might think is our best, might only be a fraction of what God has in store for you.
(Isaiah 55:8) “”For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD.”
Many times we believe what God is thinking or we know what’s best for us. But we can’t imagine or comprehend what God’s plans are for us.
Take Moses for example, spent the past 40 years in the wilderness now God called him to go back to Egypt and lead the Israelites. Do you think Moses ever thought he would go back to Egypt? Or become a great prophet for a nation he used to enslave?
(Proverbs 3:5) “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;”
Our biggest problem is we try to use our own logic and not trust God. Man can’t comprehend how God created the Heavens and The Earth so man created up the Big Bang Theory. Man can’t comprehend that God is the creator of life so they created Evolution. Why do we do this?
Because it make us feel like we’re still in control when we make up our own logic. The reality is were not in control, God is in complete control, lean not on your own understanding.
(Romans 8:28) “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
Key words here at “According to his Purpose” Sometimes we believe were doing Gods will, but were only pleasing ourselves. How can we know what his will is then? God will open the doors to where you’re supposed to go. If you have to break down a door to reach your destiny, it probably wasn’t meant to be.
God never said it was going to be an easy path either, you must remember you will be tested, you will be tempted to quit, but remember “all things work together for good” just follow God and his plans for you. In Jesus name Amen
