God’s Plans Are Different

FEBRUARY 24TH, 2022      |       Have you made plans that haven’t worked out? Something always seems to happen that you have no control over. There are many detours in life, but sometimes those detours turn out better than you first thought possible. 

In the end, God’s plan is always the best option. He sees the whole picture, not only your current story but your entire future. God knows the bigger plan and purpose for our current situation when we don’t. It’s been said, “We see down the street, but God not only sees down the street but around the corner as well.” 

God is God, and we know His plans are different from ours. Those plans may not happen according to our timing though, yet He always knows what is ahead for us. It is our job to trust Him and His infinite wisdom. As Jeremiah 29:11 says, “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’” So when our plans change, let’s wait on God to reveal His outcome.

God’s Plans Are Different

Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.

– Proverbs 19:21 NIV

Lord, help me trust that Your plan is always the perfect one.

Father, I believe that You have a purpose for everything that happens in my life. Help me to be willing to take Your detours, even when it’s scary!
