I have been reading Genesis and what amazes me is how God prevails His plans. Even when evil arises and people are disobedient – God’s plans still prevail. It makes me think of my own life in how I tend to fear the “what ifs” of my own plans. Instead I need to think of “what is”, which is God already going before me and working out His plans for my good. So my life’s “story” becomes a life’s testimony of who God is! He redeems, restores, saves, loves and is merciful.
Faith in God’s plans never fails because He has what’s best for us.
It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.Deuteronomy 31:8
Game plan with scripture – learn the promises of God.
- God gives me strength when I am weak – 2 Corinthians 12:9
- Prayer relieves my unbelief – Mark 9:23-25
- Every opportunity teaches me to persevere and draw near to God – Romans 5:3-5
- God works out everything for good – Romans 8:28
- I trust in God, He gives me the desires of my heart – Psalm 37:4
God’s plans will always be better than whatever we can dream of.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.Jeremiah 29:11-13
Thank you God for wanting and knowing what is best for me. I pray for belief to take over my unbelief. May you guide me to learn to seek you with all of my heart. I pray for faith to increase over my fear. Thank you for the plans I have yet to see and thank you that it has already worked out for my best! Amen.
