WAITING ON HIS PLAN

YOUR DAILY MOMENT: Inspirational thoughts to begin your day
January 5, 2017

It is hard to trust in God when things are not going according to your plan. I was talking with a neighbor about how our plans don’t always work out the way we want them too. Have you ever been through a time when nothing went according to your plan, only to look back later and see how God had a better plan for you all along?  My neighbor commented the difficult thing for him is waiting upon the Lord: allowing Him to work His plan for us in His time.  A scripture verse comes to mind; “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.” (Jeremiah 29:11).

What a powerful verse.  If God’s plan is to prosper us, to do us no harm and give us hope for the future, and to do these things in His perfect time, (ref Ecclesiastes 3:11), then we must learn to wait upon the Lord. It has taken most of my life to realize it, but if I do not have peace about something, I wait until I have peace.  When waiting upon the Lord and peace comes, you have the green light to proceed.
