Trusting God with Your Plans and Future

Our Almighty God, carries the highest honor in this world. Because He is the Master of this universe He has created us with a purpose. We need to spend time with God to understand that purpose. When we spend time with God in prayer, He speaks to us thereby revealing His will to us. We cannot take independent decisions on our own after we commit our lives into His hands. We must wait patiently to allow God to work in our lives. That is how we become God's children: Obedience and complete surrender is what God appreciates in us.

Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Think About It

Most of the time, we are worried about our lives-our food, clothes, bank balances, savings, insurance, health, career and jobs. We make our own plans in setting up our career, employment and salaries; and we trust and rely on our own intelligence for day-to-day living. We believe we are worthy to make our future plans well in advance.

Have you tried to listen to the voice of God saying, "I am here to take care of you"? God says, "Cast your entire burden on Me. I will take care of you, and I have a plan for your life." All that God requires is your absolute surrender to Him. The Bible says that those who trust in God never fail, but those who trust in human strength always have witnessed failures and defeats.
