And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. Philippians 1:6
God’s plan will always be greater and more beautiful than all our disappointments.
As human beings, we desire some sense of control; it’s natural to create plans according to the way we would prefer things to be. We trace our own plans which must be carried out to the letter. Yet in most occasions we see that our plans fall apart and wonder, where did I go wrong?
We may experience things we’ve never imagined much less planned, we even knew to avoid these! We may feel alone, abandoned, forgotten or feeling like a failure to some extent but the reality is, that if your personal plan has failed: the plans of God are at work in your life. We can have brilliant ideas or “perfect” plans except that 1st Corinthians 1:25 says, the foolish plan of God is wiser than the wisest plan of man. Most times it is that we may be mistaken in relying solely on our own preferences and plans.
It is God who has plans for us. He has plans that He will carry out in His time and in His way. If you are going through a wilderness: this is part of God’s plan. If you are going through situations that were unplanned: God is not finished with you, do not worry and trust instead.
God has not missed any detail. He has not forgotten. Everything is not lost and God is with you, He has not abandoned you. He has begun to manifest His wonderful and perfect plans for your life.
All knowing father, thank you for always thinking about us and our well-being. We acknowledge that your ways are better than ours and we pray that you continue to show us the path You have destined for us to walk. Help us not to be too busy to hear your voice or recognize your blessings. Thank you for waking us up each day with a new chance to get it right. Thank you for your everlasting love, never ending mercy and for all the blessed days ahead. In the holy name of Jesus, I pray, Amen!
