GOD HAS A PLAN FOR OUR LIVES

Today’s devotion, entitled God Has a Plan for Our Lives, is at the very core of our being. For God knows the plans that He has for us…plans for us to prosper and do good. It does not matter what our status in life may be. God has a way of blessing us beyond our understanding.  We may face trials and tribulations. We may be overcome by burdens and cares. Yet, God is able to turn that around. He knows what is best for us. Today’s devotion scripture reference is Psalm 40:17.

 “As for me, since I am poor and needy, let the Lord keep me in his thoughts. You are my helper and my savior. O my God, do not delay.”

In this closing verse of this psalm, the psalmist states his condition. Throughout this psalm, he shares his life’s journey. There are those who sought to harm and destroy him. But his faith and trust in God never wavered. He knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that if he waited on the Lord, the Lord would come to his rescue. He knew his life was in God’s plan and that the Lord had a divine plan for his life.  Because he knew these plans, he could maintain his faith and trust. In other words, he knew that trouble would not last always. So, today, whatever state you are in, know that God knows where you are, and in His time, He will bring you out so that you might continue to look to Him. It may well be that the plan for your life includes some difficult days in order for God to get you to where He wants you to be. So do not give up on God. He will not give up on you.
