Are you living according to the purpose that God has for your life? Life is filled with ups and downs, doors closing, and new opportunities opening. If we’re only doing what we think is best, we’ll quickly get off the track that God has planned out for us. We must all strive to recognize God’s plan for us is better than anything we could ever come up with and live it out to the best of our ability!
The first step in this process is putting our own plans aside. We have to recognize our limited capacity and God’s ultimate knowledge. His plan for us is far greater than anything we could ever conceive. When we recognize our plans are outright inferior, we can step into the new plans that God has for us in confidence, and know He will lead us to where we need to be!
Once we open ourselves up to God’s plan for us, we can begin to make an impact for His Kingdom. Putting His plan first will inevitably involve steps of faith, moments of uncertainty, and at times, it will seem like we’ve hit a wall. When we’re following God’s plan for us, He will make sure we have a way to get done what He wants done—Have faith in His plans for you!
Don’t let your own selfish desires chart the course for your life’s journey. God already has made a plan that is unique to you, realize this and step into His purpose for your life in faith! Put your plans to the side and follow our Creator’s intention. Are you ready to step into all that God has for you?
