Your Plans Or His?

From the breaking of the daylight
Help us see the world through Your eyes
Finding beauty in the broken
Trusting promises You’ve spoken

You’ve got plans to give us a future and a hope
We are not forgotten
We are not alone
Plans to lead us home into Your heart
You are always with us
Everywhere we are

On and on Your love will never stop
Shining down upon us
Never letting up
On and on Your love will see us through
Even in the shadows
We will trust in You

You stay loyal for a lifetime
Through the shadows and the sunlight
When our worries overtake us
We believe that they won’t break us

If you are making plans for your life and you are not seeking God then you probably won’t be successful at what you are attempting to do. God doesn’t usually bless your plan for your life, in fact He seems to take delight in upsetting the plans that we have made without Him, just when you begin to move with your plan it can all fall apart in a heartbeat.

 “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD. “And My ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so My ways are higher than your ways and My thoughts higher than your thoughts.”

Isaiah 55:8-9

We all have dreams, we tell our kids to dream big, we all have ideas about what we want to be when we grow up or how we want our life to turn out. God did not put you on Earth to live for yourself and He didn’t put you here to make your own plans. There isn’t any good reason that I should settle for my plan when His plan is for me to do far greater things than I could even imagine.

Are you in a place you never expected to be? Has God taken you on a path you never would have chosen?

God has not deserted or forgotten about you, usually it is the other way around, we forget about Him. We get ourselves into circumstances that were not chosen by God, and suddenly we realize that we have been making our plans without Him and it isn’t working out so well.

God knows exactly what He is doing. Most of the time we need to slow down and wait for him so that we can hear Him speak into our life over all of the noise. You need to realize that He is desiring to accomplish more in you and through you than you could ever think or imagine.
