Even after all these years, I still had to be constantly reminded that’s we can make our own plans but the One who directs our steps is still our Sovereign Lord. Only He knows where each path will lead us.
In all your plans, when a door is shut, praise Him. When a door is opened, praise Him. Cover each and every one your heart desire in earnest prayers. Prayer is a fragrant offering to our Lord because it shows our dependency and submission upon His power to make things happen.
Yield to His will and Lordship in your life. God has a plan too; He has a plan to prosper you and not to harm you. It may be lacking in details but we could trust the big picture that He has for us. Today, I could testify that though not all of my carnal plans come to fruition, He has opened different doors that lead to much greater blessings and I’m unable to boast that all the victories attained are purely of my own efforts. In this, God is glorified.
In addition to that, my spiritual self is replenished daily and in it I find much better deals such as joy and peace knowing that I have a wonderful future to look forward to.
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.
