Topic: Was This Part Of The Plan?

“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” – Isaiah 55:9

Withdrawn from the crowd and every activity of the day, she sought a quiet place where she could just relate with God, pour out her heart, and let Him know how she truly felt. She couldn’t talk to anyone else and couldn’t take this anymore; she had reached her wit’s end. She felt any moment from now, with one more word, scenario, or even a whisper, she would explode.

Getting to a familiar spot where she had at often times poured her heart and shared her concerns with God, she sobbed out loud “Lord, I never bargained for this! This is too much for me to handle! I only wanted a husband that would love and understand me, but this work; I don’t think I can take it anymore.”

This might be your story.

Yes, you probably did not see this aspect coming. All you wanted was a “normal” life with your family all to yourself; but God had a greater plan for you that would make you an ambassador for Him on the earth. He has plans to culminate in an outstanding miracle for you, if only you would let Him.

Don’t be deceived by the lies of the enemy, trying to steal and trample on your joy. Yes, you may have had your plans which are completely different from what is obtainable now, but remember that God’s plans are higher than yours and His way are far beyond yours (Isaiah 55:9). His plans are to bring you to a greater future, far more than you expected. So, rejoice and grab the opportunity to serve Him with both hands, no matter where you are serving. An understanding of this will make you seek to please Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. This might not be your plan, but it is His plan. So, enjoy the ride with Him.

He has this all figured out.

Trust Him.

Remain Blessed!
