As a relatively new Christian I still sometimes fail to get my head around how great God’s plans are for my life and when he answers prayer I kind of get real stoked, like jumping up and down stoked! Yet surely I should trust that he is always going to answer my prayers. I also need to remember that I don’t have to do the planning, because God’s in control of all that, of course his way is always going to be the best way.
Isaiah 55:8 – 12 – ‘For my thoughts are not your thoughts neither are your ways my ways’ declares the Lord. ‘As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. As the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth it will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.
He knows the plans he has for me, and you know what it says in the Bible those plans are to prosper and not to harm me yet here I am again, trying to plan, forgetting to scan the Bible or get down on my knees, so please God, have it your way, I’m trying again and this time it’s with you God, I may find it hard to understand what you’re doing, but I’m choosing to trust that you’ve got all the balls up in the air, juggled not muddled, trusting in you with all of my heart cos let’s face it compared to God I am nothing, yet I know that I am everything to God, he tells me daily he will never fail me, never let me fall, he is my all and I have to stop measuring his power by my limited expectations, his plans are even greater that I can imagine, I am just scratching the surface of all he has in store, he opens doors no man can shut, he puts us where we need to be, so pray, seek, trust him and obey, no need to look further than the Lord, his ways are higher, his thoughts are better, I no longer need to figure it out, trust in God and have no doubts.
