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.
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.
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 valley lows, or at the crossroads of life you may be assured that God is there, and you may be assured that He has a plan.
If you manage to align yourself with God’s plan for your life, you will be energized, you will be enthused, and you will be blessed. That’s why you should strive mightily to understand what it is that God wants you to do. But how can you know precisely what God’s intentions are? The answer, of course, is that even the most well-intentioned believers face periods of uncertainty and doubt about the direction of their lives. So, too, will you.
When you discover God’s plan for your life, you will experience abundance, peace, joy, and power, God’s power. And that’s the only kind of power that really matters.
Point to ponder- God has a wonderful plan for your life. And the time to start looking for that plan and living it, is now.
