PSALM 16:11 NKJV You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore
If you’re experiencing tough times, you may be asking yourself, “What does God want me to do next?” Perhaps you might be pondering your future, uncertain of your plans, unsure of your next step. But even if you don’t have a clear plan for the next step of your life’s journey, you may rest assured that God does.
God has a plan for the universe, and God has a plan for you. The Lord understands that plan as thoroughly and completely as He knows you. If you seek God’s will sincerely and prayerfully, He will make His plans known to you in His own time and in His own way.
Perhaps your vision of God’s purpose for your life has been consumed with your own desires of what God should do for you! If so, you have probably experienced more disappointment than satisfaction and more frustration than peace. A better strategy is to submit your will to God’s (and not to struggle manipulating God in an effort to have His will meet your will).
There are times, God’s plans and purposes may seem undeniable and clear to you. If so, push ahead. But other times, The Lord may lead you through the wilderness before He directs you to the Promised Land. So do not be anxious about the Lord’s will for your life (Philippians 4:6). You will definitely be amazed at the marvelous things that our God can do for you!
Quote: C. H. Spurgeon “Underneath each trouble there is a faithful purpose.”
Prayer: Dear Lord, let Your purposes be my purposes. Let Your will be my will. Let your Joy be my joy. Let Your Plan be my plan, today and every day in Christ name. Amen
