It’s normal for we humans to plan; plan for our future, plan for kids, plan for our business, in fact, plan for all things. But have we ever taken a moment to think that God might have an entirely different plan for you. And when we humans fail to see this, we tend to struggle with life. We naturally think that God is either not listening or He has finally shut the door on us. That is not the case.
When you notice that you are always frustrated, anxious, generally angry or almost always irritable, especially when you feel that your life is on a ‘stand-still’ or you are far from achieving your personal goals, then it’s time to be calm and spend that quality moment with God. This moment is the moment to ask Him what He’s plan is for you.
I don’t mean to sound preachy but that’s just the reality of life for those who believe in God. We need to genuinely ask Him to let His will be done in your life. Quit fighting! Don’t be like Jonah in the Bible, who kept running away from God’s plan for him until he got swallows by a whale. He eventually had to obey God and his life returned to normalcy.
I’ve never been one to make long term plans as such;I may have thought of it but I don’t dwell on it because I know God, He may just have an entirely different plan for me. So my strategy generally is to flow with the flow.
The day I discovered true rest of mind and happiness, was the day I quit struggling with God’s plan for me. He knows best. He knew (and still knows) my needs, desires even before I was born. I trust Him enough to take the wheels. I don’t worry when my plans don’t go accordingly. No, I don’t. If my plans are in line with God’s plan for me, I notice I don’t struggle with finding that path to success. I notice that doors easily open without having to struggle with the handle. Favours from all directions begin to occur. Even ‘enemies’ are used as helpers in your favour. Isn’t He a marvellous God?
So my loves, I’m telling you this moment to stop fighting God’s plan for you. Learn to listen to that inner voice of God. What is yours is yours, no one can take it away from you. Just relax and allow God to do His job. If you have request from God or you’ve made plans that don’t seem to be working, then it’s time to look towards God. It may be that it’s not yet time to have it or that God has a different plan for you. If you have asked Him to help you in prayer, then back off!
Enough said ‘Biko’!
