Who's Plan is it anyway??


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)


Sunday morning Pastor Ant questioned the congregation as to who's favorite scripture was Jer. 29:11. He went on to say that we sometimes forget the first part of the scripture. You know the part! The part where He tells us that HE has plans for us! I think that many times we forget that part!! We are all about OUR plans. We are all about the hope for OUR future. The future we have planned!! BUT, what if HIS plans don't line up with our plans?? What if HIS plans are not what we think we want?? What then??

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!!

    1. động tâm.

      Vương Lâm thở sâu, nhìn Thiên Vận Tử không chuyển mắt. Cuộc đời hắn chưa từng thấy qua Tiên thuật. Thứ cao nhất mà hắn chứng kiến chính là Cấm pháp, bắt chước từ hạ phẩm tiên thuật mà thôi.

      Uy lực của Cấm pháp đã cường đại như thế, Vương Lâm cũng không tưởng tượng ra được, rốt cục Tiên thuật cường đại đến độ nào nữa.

      Ngay tại khi toàn bộ mọi người đều chăm chú nhìn Thiên Vận Tử, chờ đợi hắn thi triển trung phẩm Tiên thuật thì bỗng nhiên từ chân trời phía xa truyền đến từng trận sét đánh. Chỉ thấy đạo đạo kiếm quang, như vô số sao băng điên cuồng bắn đến.

  2. Great devotion I myself half to trust what Isaiah 55 says when it says His ways are higher than ours. That's Sens to be the hardest thing to grasp.

  4. I have often asked why and later found the hand of God in the situation. As the song lyric goes "When you can't trace His hand, trust His heart."
