Devotional - God has a plan for your life

Where is the plan for my life I cried out to God…. and then realised I was standing in it.

God promises us that He has a plan and a purpose for our life – that it is a plan to give us a hope and a future – a plan to prosper us and not to harm us - but He never says what it is going to take along the way.

Perhaps you changed completely the minute you said yes to God but I know for me it was a process (and still very much is). At every stage of the process there was both pain and joy.  Surrender and resistance – letting go (and letting God) - learning, growing closer to the Lord, weeping, laughing…

But perhaps today you find yourself at a painful time in the process - trust God in it. 

Maybe it doesn’t look like or feel like that plan you hoped for or expected – trust God in it.

Sometimes things don’t make sense. But stay with it, God works out all, not some, but all things for good.

So dear brother or sister, I pray God would comfort you in whatever season you are in, may you  know that Jesus walks beside you…goes before you and hems you in from behind.

He knows your every thought and He has a plan…for good…not evil….to give you a hope….

So – with all this in mind – I made a decision to change my position and stop questioning and moaning (isn’t that what the Israelites did and their journey lasted far longer than it had to) and to start declaring and thanking.  

Thank you God that you have a plan for my life – perhaps it doesn’t look like what I thought it would look like but I trust you Lord.
