God’s Plans or Your Plans?
What are your thoughts for today?
What are your thoughts for tomorrow?
What are your thoughts for your life?
Have you become consumed with planning but never getting anywhere? Plans are good but they can also consume you. My life was consumed with ‘To Do Lists’. I had scraps of paper everywhere with a list of things I thought I needed to get through the day.
There was a time in my life when I could not make a move without my list of things to do.
So what changed? I changed. Priorities changed. God became FIRST!
God taught me what was really important. God says in His Word, I know your thoughts. (Some versions say “plans”).
God knows everything about us. There is a peace which cannot be described nor understood when you allow God into your life.
Always remember God comes first in everything.
Jeremiah 29:10-14 (kjv)
10 For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place.
11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.
13 And ye shall seek me, and find me when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
14 And I will be found of you, saith the LORD: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the LORD; and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive.
