Many a times you have plans with regards to your future, perfect plans. You spend your energy, time and resources preparing,organizing and setting up plans that you can literary see and touch, … this perfect future. After all, the word of God says, “The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance, but everyone who is hasty comes only to poverty”.(Proverbs 21:5). What then happen after all the planning catches you off guard, NOTHING WOKS!
Doesn’t the word of God say, “You have given him his heart’s desire, And You have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah. (Psalms 21:2). The Lord surely gives me the desires of my heart and all things work together for me…. Why did God let me do all this running around? What about the things I let go of following this plan? Is time on my side? Does God even know that time is not on my side? What have I missed? You scrutinize your life… any sins, generational curses, enemies and “spirits” working against me and so forth? You agonize.
Hold on my beloved, God knows the desires of your heart and knows all that you need before you even ask of Him (Matthew 6:8). His eye is on you and will never let you miss a step.( Matthew 10:29-31). Do not ever think He has left you for He says, “ The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” (Deutoronomy 31:8).
Trust in the Lord with all thy heart and lean not on your own understanding. (Proverbs 3:10).
But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. (2 Timothy 3:8)
Indeed all things work together for you but it may not be according to your plans.
