Jeremiah 29:11 (HCSB) For I know the plans I have for you”-[this is] the Lord’s declaration- “plans for [your] welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
Why did God put (us) me here?” It’s a simple question to ask and, at times, a very complicated question to answer. Especially in our human and Spiritual experiences.
As you seek to discover (or perhaps, to rediscover) God’s plan for your life, you should start by remembering this: You are here because God put you here, and the Lord did so for a very good reason: His reason and plans.
Interestingly enough at times, you may be confident that you are doing God’s will. But on other occasions, you may be uncertain about the direction that your life should take. At times, you may wander aimlessly in a wilderness of your own making. And sometimes, you may struggle mightily against God in a vain effort to find success and happiness through your own means, not His.
But wherever you find yourself-whether on the mountaintops, in the valleys, or at the crossroads of life-you may be assured that God is there, and you may be assured that He has a plan.
When you arrive at one of life’s inevitable turning points, that’s the moment when you should turn your thoughts and prayers toward God. When you do, the Lord will make Himself known to you in a time and manner of His choosing. When you discover God’s plan for your life, you will experience peace, joy, and power- God’s power beyond what you can think or imagaine (Ephesians 3:20).
Point to ponder: And that’s the only kind of power that really matters. God has a wonderful plan for your life. And today is time to start looking for that plan-and living it-is now. And always remember- discovering God’s plan begins with prayer, but it does not end there. You have also got to work at it family of God!
Quote Warren Wiersbe – “One of the wonderful things about being a Christian is the knowledge that God has a plan for our lives”.
