For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. (Jeremiah 29:11 NLT)
For as long as I can remember I have watched the love my parents have for each other and have longed for my Father in Heaven to send me that kind of love. Everyday I remind HIM of what HIS word says :
Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.” (Genesis 2:18 NLT)
To me, this is a promise!! But, my plan was for this promise to be fulfilled many years ago! HIS plan has been not yet!!
HIS plan has been to grow me, to change me,and to work on me daily. To turn me into the woman HE wants me to be.
Maybe your plan is like mine. To find the person HE created you for. Maybe your plan is for a child of your own, a new home, to be financially secure.......... Our plans can be any number of things. BUT, all that really matters and all that will really bring us peace, hope, a future is HIS plan!! To listen to and obey HIS voice!! And to remember the words that Moses spoke to the Israelites :
The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.” (Exodus 14:14 NLT)
I pray that we will all let our Father lead us according to HIS plans!!
