Scripture: A man’s mind plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps and makes them sure; (Proverbs 16:9 Amp.).
“Today is the day that I take my destiny into my own hands!”
Perhaps you’ve made this declaration to plan your way to success. You’ve weighed your strengths and decided that you’re business savvy and level-headed, and you’ve concluded that you can do things on your own. But, are you able to create a bright future using your plans? Do you have the power to make all things work together for your good?
Romans 8:28 assures us that God can make all things work together for the good of those who love him and are called according to his purpose.
Consider this, God has a million different ways to accomplish a single feat. He has predestined an excellent plan for your future. He calculated every detail before you were conceived in your mother’s womb. God knows all about you.
Let’s be clear, wisdom must have her say in any future plans of God’s children. Before the world’s foundation, every step you’ve taken has brought you to this day! God knows about the damaged areas and the adversity you’ve gone through. He knows who left you and who stayed. All of the crooked places, He made them straight. All matters concerning you are covered. God’s plan is to prosper you and give you an expected end; (Jeremiah 29:11).
Often, we try to handle things outside of the scope of the covenant that God established for us. Operating this way opens a door for fear, doubt, confusion, and unbelief to interrupt our plans. But, when Jesus is leading the way, and we’re following Him, our minds are free from insecurities. As a result, he’s able to put an end to our struggles, and we’re able to relax as we place our trust and faith in Him.
So, why not trust God’s plan? He’s waiting for you to surrender your will and accept His will. It’s your choice! The Best is Yet to Come in 2020!
Abundant blessing to you!
