Reading Verse: Exodus 9:1-35
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Everyone has plans and desires, and we are ambitious to reach our dreams. But keep in mind that only God has the power to determine our destiny. God has already had plans all the best for each of us. Therefore, we have to live according to His plan. His plan has the most perfect and the best plan. He is our perfect Father.
It is written in Isaiah 29:11 that God plans beautiful future full of hope, so we have to believe His beautiful plan, and live within it. In the Word of God, Joseph experienced many challenges and problems, but he remained faitful and loyal to God. After he had gone through a long process, in the end God revealed His beautiful plan for him. Joseph was used to be a blessing for his brothers. So, in order to live in His plan, we’ve got to believe that God is always the best despite of our problems and processes. Believe that God will never leave us. Romans 8:28 says that in all things God works for the good of those who love him. In each process that we go through brings the best for us. Keep being strong so that we can see the revelation of His plans.
We must surrender only to God, because He is the only One who leads our lives and directs His people to the perfect path. Let Him take control so that His best plan happens in our lives. No matter how our situations are at this moment, surrender to the Lord. We may not be able to understand God’s way, because His plan is different with our wants. But, we have to learn to obey His will so God can reveal His best plan.
When we have chosen to live according to His plan, don’t be afraid but keep your faith and follow God’s way until His plan is revealed.
We have to have faith in His beautiful plans, and live according to God’s plan.
