A Plan for You

“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 a hope and a future.”  (Jeremiah 29:11)

If you feel disheartened, discouraged or anything in that “what’s the point or why bother?” category, cling to this promise above. God STILL has a plan, even when events seem completely upside down, confusing or lack order or purpose.

Trust in God.

Purpose over Plans

“Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.” Proverbs. 19:21

Busy, busy, busy. Go, go, go. Plan, plan, plan. In the midst of your planning, what might God have for you today? A message? An opportunity? A conviction? A different direction? Perhaps it will be an encounter, an idea or an unexpected conversation.

Enjoy the fulfillment of your plans and intentions today, moms, and look for God’s purposes in them. You may be heading for fun in the sun at the beach, enjoying a hike, getting together with family and friends, hearing a sermon, serving or worshiping.  You have your ideas about what your plans look like and God has His ideas about what He wants to accomplish in your plans.  His purposes will prevail so be on the lookout for what might be happening in your head, emotions, relationships or home. And you might be surprised at what you discover your plans bring!

What purpose(s) may God be trying to accomplish THROUGH your plans today?
