“I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.” Jeremiah 29.11 MSG
God has a plan for your life. Yes—your life and mine. The tragedy is that we often are too busy—too preoccupied—to hear Him or see His work in our lives. If you slow down and begin to “see” Him and spend more time with Him, you’ll see how God gently takes us by the hand and leads us, a little at a time, to the future that only He can see.
By moving us along gently, He gives us the time we need to mature, to develop the skills we need for the work He has planned, and to get us used to the idea that all that has happened in the past may, in fact, be part of His grand plan for us.
By revealing His plan a little at a time, God helps us adjust to the idea that His dream plan may be bigger than we ever imagined.
Prayer:O Lord. I trust that Your plan for my life is perfect for me. Reveal to me, even in small ways, how You are getting me ready to fulfill what You have dreamed up for my life. Amen.
