From the time we get up in the morning, we oftentimes have a laundry list of plans for the day. Yes, we have made lots of plans in our lives, over the years. Some of them just wishful thinking, some very concrete and detailed.
Most of us would probably agree, they were all good plans mentally. But not that many have worked out the way we thought that they would. Some we were not conditioned for, even when we thought that we were; others would take us two lifetimes to complete, while others started off well and ended terribly.
Its good to have some idea of where we want to go and what we will need along the way. However, not all our plans are in the will of God, even when they sound like good plans to us. When they are not, God shows us a much better purpose and plan for our lives. Isn’t it good to know that we have a Father, that offers flaw-less guidance. He is going to get us to a sure destination, and place us in the presence of the right people.
Trust that God knows where He needs you, today and tomorrow. Just keep walking. God is taking all of us somewhere. Follow His plan….its going to be good.
A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps. Proverbs 16:9
I’m sure many of us have left home, headed for a destination only to find that we must turn around and go back home. Whether it was to get an item we forgot, turn off something, or in my case to make sure I let the garage door down.
Well, when God interrupts our plans, at first we may squirm and shout like little toddlers. But when He brings us into full view of His plans, we are awed into reverence and changed from deep inside. Not one person who has ever been in His presence has remained the same. The moment we find ourselves face to face with the Divine purpose of God for our lives, we also find that it leaves us changed for good. Isn’t it Good News, to know that God allows and welcomes U-turns, and is continually nudging us in the right direction.
Whatever your path today, welcome those change encounters (people, places, and things) that appear radical in nature, they will fulfill the purposes of God in our lives. One thing is certain, God’s purposed destination is a sure destination.
