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.
God created a plan for my life : master-plan. He thought through every moment, every detail.
The question is did I follow His plan, or did I deviate and travel my own path?
Somehow, I believe since He is all-knowing God who knows my future, that he weaved even my sins and mistakes into His plan so that He could fulfil the promises of Romans 8:28.
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose.
He knew the path I would take, every mistake, every sin, and every failure. He took those broken pieces and weaved them into the fabric of my life. When I thought calamity, he thought lesson and a chance to overcome in Him.
He turned my worse days into blessed days. He created an over-comer. He created a thankful heart in me.
The thankfulness never immediate, but it did flood my soul as I looked back and saw how he rescued me from even deeper failure.
Yet, even now in my present storms, I cry out the promises of these two scriptures. I cling to them like a lifeboat.
The waves may crash, the thunder boom, and life storms surround me, but my rescue is at hand. I just have to hold fast to His promises.
No matter what my outward circumstances look like, victory is on the way.
My failure will turn to blessings.
My sin and mistakes transformed to lessons.
A light of hope beaming in my darkness.
A hand outstretched to lift me up.
I just have to meet it and accept it in faith.
What kinds of storms do you walk through? Know God is the author and finisher of our faith. He planned our lives throughout eternity. He knew me. He knew you.
Will you accept the master-planner as author of your life today?
