Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.
It’s funny how we always sit and plan for our Future, imagine our wedding day, how many children we will have, where we will stay and the type of job we wI’ll have. But we never for a second wait and ask ourselves if those are God’s plans for us. We are always too quick to decide and conclude on what we have decided on.
We have a full life plan all planned out for our lives. Some of us have planned what we want to do with our adult lives since we were little children. While some of us only figured out our plan during our varsity years. Where ever you stand on the spectrum, you probably have some idea of what you want the rest of your life to look like. And you probably feel like a failure when you realise that, those plans might not come to pass.
We are nearing the end of 2018 and it’s a crazy time of the year. Everyone is rushing around trying to fulfil all the plans they declared in the beginning of this year, because many times the plans we lay out don’t always follow through the way we would like for them to, and because of that many of us are going a little crazy, as we love to be the architect of our lives.
Every new year comes with even more new plans and resolutions that many of us are so determined to see happen or accomplish. We make a list, we write everything down in our journals, books, our phone’s or we simply promise ourselves that one specific thing is going to happen for us, the way we want it to happen. We pray about it and often ask God to help us reach our goals and to help our plan along. However, what happens when that perfect little plan falls completely apart?
What we always fail to see is that we never include God is our planing. We always think for ourselves and think we know what is right for us and what we deserve.
We need to know and Remember that the plans we have for our lives are radically different from the plans God has set in stone for us when He formed us. We must remind ourselves of that. We must trust in the Lord because He will light the way. He will make straight our paths. He loves us and He wants only the best for us.
when a plan does not come to pass the way you imagined, trust in God and have faith that God is aware of your situation and that He is planing something bigger and better for you. Know that God is actually in the center of what we call failure and is doing something even greater than we could have imagined. God is closer to us in the middle of our failed plans, He is guiding us toward a greater plan.
I know that it’s hard to trust in a plan we cannot physically see or one we didn’t plan ourselves but God would never lead us down the wrong path. God’s plan’s are never easily revealed to us. He wants us to grow closer to Him by learning to completely trust in His plans without knowing what those plans are. Because when we place all our trust in the Lord, we aren’t scared of the outcomes of the hidden plans He has for us.
So, those plans you have made that you hold so close to your heart, maybe let them go just a little bit. Know that God’s plan is even more amazing and holds more promise than your own.
Know that Our God is a God that sees the Future and we can’t. We can take educated guesses, but God knows for certain what will happen tomorrow, next week, and for years to come.
Allow God to be the architect of your life
