We all have these ideas of what should happen in our lives, but as we know, things do not always go as we planned. Why does this happen? Well, life is life and no matter how much we prepare, things will go wrong. Do we need to worry, be anxious, or lose sleep? No, we must take peace in the words of Jeremiah, “that God has plans for us, for our welfare and not for our calamity.” God wants us to believe in Him and have eternal life with Him in heaven. The ultimate peace, the ultimate gift, the ultimate plan is God’s plan.
Questions for further thought:
1. What do you do when things don’t go as you planned?
2. How does it make feel to know that God really wants what is best for you?
Challenge: Instead of looking at the bad in things you face, see what God is teaching you through them.
