“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.”
This verse has been really encouraging to me lately. In many ways and places.
I’m the type of person who likes to have plans. I usually like to know what I’ll be doing today, tomorrow, or even next week. But God doesn’t always work like that. He has His own time schedule. And He does what’s best for me too. I’m the one who is sometimes impatient.
So when I don’t understand which direction I’m headed, it’s challenging. I have to remind myself that
even when I may not see what’s ahead of me very clearly, I do know the One who sees everything.
“This is what the LORD says—
your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel:
“I am the LORD your God,
who teaches you what is best for you,
who directs you in the way you should go.”
So I drink tea while I wait on God’s timing. I need to wait for God to make His plans happen.
