Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.
- Proverbs 19:21
Have your plans ever been interrupted?
How did you react? For most of us, it can be frustrating when things don’t go the way we planned them to be.
Sadly, sometimes we plan so far ahead or so meticulously that we fail to stop and consider what God’s plan is.
Sometimes it is God Himself who interrupts us, because He wants to give us direction and reveal His plan.
Remember, His ways are not our ways, and His thoughts are not our thoughts. His ways are higher!
The busyness of life can numb or blind us to God’s will.
For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. (Philippians 2:13 NLT)
Not only is it God’s pleasure and responsibility to lead and guide us to His plan, it is also His responsibility to give us the desire and power to follow it!
When you accepted Jesus into your heart and embarked on this life-long journey with Him, the transforming power of the Holy Spirit made His home in you.
This means God is working in you, causing you to desire (as well as understand) His plan for your life.
The more you seek His face and fall in love with Him, the more your desires change to align with His desires!
Today, know that you do not have to fret about your future or worry yourself into a frenzy. God is in control. God knows your future. God has what is best for you. The next time your plans are interrupted, stop and take the time to see if it’s the Lord wanting to give you direction. You will never be disappointed in what He has in store!
