Trust Him…

Jeremiah 29:11

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.

Jeremiah 29:1

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

Psalms 23:1

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.

I used to wonder all the time why my plans didn’t work out, why I was always so close but couldn’t quite reach the goal. It wasn’t until I brought it to God and said, Here, I’m tired. I pray, I fast, I read the bible, I go to church, I share your message and I just don’t know what I’m doing wrong. Then, God spoke, It’s not you. It’s who you’re allowing in because they are not part of my plan for you. What a revelation that was! At the same time so, so uncomfortable to think that if I was going to walk in God’s plans for me I was going to have to leave some people behind. I thought, how do I tell them, how do I explain myself, what excuse, what reasons do I give? None, you don’t have to do anything or say anything but follow my instruction, God said. At that time I had to make my choice, was I all in? Was I ready to really leave behind those that were very much part of my life but not part of God’s plan for me? Have you ever found yourself holding on to what is actually holding you back? It can be people or it can be a job, it can even be as simple as something that you’re so comfortable holding onto that you don’t even realize it’s the very thing that is making you stuck. I encourage you to trust God, trust His plan. If we don’t put our trust in Him, Him who has created us, Him who has known us before we were made then who?  All you have to do is take the first step, God takes care of the rest.

Heavenly Father, I pray today that you make me bold enough to walk in your plans, I don’t need to know what it is all I need to know is that it comes from you and that I trust you. Give me the strength that I need to walk away from those things or people that are obstructing your plans for me. Let your will be done today and the rest of my days. In Jesus name Amen.
