Plans


         

Proverbs 19:21New International Version (NIV) 

Many are the plans in a person’s heart,    but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.


                    I seat here wondering about all the plans I had and have laid out for my life and I have to admit they haven't always lined up with what God has had planned for me. Several scriptures come to mind first being Proverbs 19:21. Which states that we may have many plans but the plans that God has prevails. So no matter what our plans are if they do not line up with what God wants for us, things may not happen as we desire/plan. 
                    Jeremiah 29:11 is another verse that talks about plans God has for us and it says, 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. This verse reminds us that God already has plans made for us and that they are for our benefit and not to harm us.  Imagine our life is already planned we just have to trust the Lord with it.  Psalm 20:4 says May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed. Which lets us know that he also plans to give us the desire of our hearts as well. Job 42:2 I know that You can do anything and no plan of Yours can be thwarted. Is the final verse we will look at and it tells that no plans of God will be thwarted. Meaning that His plans cannot be prevented.
                So there we have it God has plans they are plans for our good and not to hurt us. He also as stated above gives us the desire of our hearts and the plans he has will not be prevented because they are His Plans. Wow, God is an awesome God and gives us all we need. We just need to be still and hear His direction for where He wants us to go.
