We want the blueprints of our house to be just perfect and for the building process to go without a hitch. Those of you who have built a house or are in the process of doing so, know that is never the case. There is always at least one glitch, if not many. Our life is like that. We have such grand plans on how our life is meant to turn out and for some, if it doesn’t happen, disillusionment sets in. Disappointment after disappointment, nothing goes according to plan.
We want God to give us the blueprints of our life. God doesn’t work that way. He may give you glimpses of what your life could be like, but nothing is ever set in stone. Our choices shape our consequences. Even if you feel like you’re doing everything right to get what you want, if it is not God’s desire for you, chances are it will not pan out.
Ask God not for the blueprints, but for the wisdom to know where He wants you to go or what He wants you to do. If you walk in God’s will, things will slowly fall in place. Trust the master builder; He has the best plans for your life, far exceeding what you could even hope for or imagine.
2 Chronicles 1: 10-12
Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of yours?” God said to Solomon, “Since this is your heart’s desire and you have not asked for wealth, possessions or honor, nor for the death of your enemies, and since you have not asked for a long life but for wisdom and knowledge to govern my people over whom I have made you king, therefore wisdom and knowledge will be given you. And I will also give you wealth, possessions and honor, such as no king who was before you ever had and none after you will have.
