YOU CAN TRUST GOD'S PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE!
I'm reminded that everything isn't for everyone. While God may allow others to do it, He may not allow you, or I, to do it, or He may limit our participation in it. There's a reason we may not see or understand but we must trust what God is doing in our life.
"I’ll show up and take care of you as I promised and bring you back home. I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for." (Jeremiah 29:10b-11 MSG)
You can trust that God will show and that He knows what He's doing. He has a plan for your life, and for my life. It's a good plan that gives us the future we hope for. I believe His plan gives us the future He uniquely planned for each one of us.
Just as each one of us has unique fingerprints and DNA we should also know that everyone's journey is not the same. Each journey was created specifically for us by God. We may be going to the same destination but how we get there is in the Potters Hands! Let that be enough for you.
Let me encourage you, God shapes and mold us and He remolds us when we move surrender to His plan for our lives. He's not going to allow us to be derailed or His plan aborted when we're obedient to His direction.
Let this Scripture encourage your heart:
The Lord gave another message to Jeremiah. He said, “Go down to the potter’s shop, and I will speak to you there.” So I did as he told me and found the potter working at his wheel. But the jar he was making did not turn out as he had hoped, so he crushed it into a lump of clay again and started over. Then the Lord gave me this message: “O Israel, can I not do to you as this potter has done to his clay? As the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand." (Jeremiah 18:1-6 NLT)
He's the Head. We are His body. We must go where He directs while doing what He has called, and equipped, us to do. It's never just about us. God wants to use us to impact lives because people matter to God and we must allow them to matter to us - even when it's hard.
Don't let comparisons cause you to become dissatisfied with your journey. Don't let comparisons cause you to stumble, or to give up. Trust God's plan for your life. He knows what we don't and sees what we can't. We can trust Him.
"Declaring the end and the result from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure and purpose." (Isaiah 46:10 AMPC)
No matter how it looks God is working it out for our good and His glory!
"So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God’s perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfill his designed purpose." (Romans 8:28 TPT)
