"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. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. "
As he spoke I realized that God had prepared my heart to hear this message and He was reminding me that He has a plan for me. I don't have to understand it. I don't have to know the end. I don't have to know the why. I don't have to come up with the plan! I just have to trust. The pastor pointed out that our job is to call upon the Lord.....not on other people, but upon the Lord.
I'm not currently in the middle of some crisis (although wait a little while, I'm sure one is coming!) nor am I trying to make some life-changing decision. I've just been stuck in the fleshly rut of thinking I can do things better than the Lord God Almighty, Creator of the heavens and the earth!!! He is so faithful. I'm so grateful for His grace and love. I'm so grateful for His plan.
