Sometime today, I had the most excellent idea for a blog post. It was so perfect. I thought about writing it down, then thought “nah…I’ll remember.” Yeah. Right. Alas, my over-40, mom-of-two-kids, too-much-to-think-about brain just can’t quite piece together the amazing blog idea. I know….tell your plans to God and He laughs. Okay, maybe that’s not the exact way the Bible puts it, but sometimes it feels like it!
The LORD nullifies the counsel of the nations; He frustrates the plans of the peoples. ~Psalm 33:10 NASB
The mind of man plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps. ~Proverbs 16:9 NASB
See….told you! Despite our best laid plans, sometimes, it’s just not the way God wants it. Although sometimes it’s a delayed reaction on my part, I am thankful that He loves me enough to redirect me when my plans aren’t His plans. Because, of course, His plans are best!
For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. ~Jeremiah 29:11
So….has God changed your plans? Take heart, He knows what He’s doing!
Be blessed and share God’s love with someone!
