Your Plans

Your Plans

Have you ever made plans, and they did not work not work out?

Oh, boy, can I raise my hands to yes on that question!

Now, I will asked you a bigger question, “did you asked God what He thought about your plans.”

I have found out the hard way, God has a sense of humor.

God seems to have a unique way of upsetting the plans we have made, when we have not taken His advice into account. He tells us in His word He is with us, and He will guide our path, if we just let Him.

“Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” Then said I: “Ah, Lord GOD! Behold, I cannot speak, for I am a youth.” But the LORD said to me: “Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’ For you shall go to all to whom I send you, And whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of their faces, For I am with you to deliver you,” says the LORD. Then the LORD put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the LORD said to me: “Behold, I have put My words in your mouth. See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, To root out and to pull down, To destroy and to throw down, To build and to plant.” Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying, “Jeremiah, what do you see?” And I said, “I see a branch of an almond tree.” Then the LORD said to me, “You have seen well, for I am ready to perform My word.””
‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭1:4-12‬ ‭

We get ourselves into in a mess when we leave God out of our plans.

When if we had sit down (and had a little talk with Jesus, He would have made it aright), from the very beginning.

Jeremiah 29: 11-13. 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. 12. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

Seeking God in our lives is more than just words. It is a personal relationship.

When we are apart from God, we do not remember to take into account, everything that God would have already planned out. Things He knew that we would face. Obstacles that may occur.

We must realize God already knows about us. He knows our voice. He hears our prayers.

““It shall come to pass That before they call, I will answer; And while they are still speaking, I will hear.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭65:24‬ ‭

So, if you have hit bottom, and you think there is no way out. Reach up, for God is ready to reach down and set your feet on the right path.

Psalm 49: 1-3 1. I waited patiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry. 2He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. 3He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the LORD and put their trust in him.

HAVE A LITTLE TALK WITH JESUS
(Cleavant Derricks)

I once was lost in sin but Jesus took me in
And then a little light from heaven filled my soul
It bathed my heart in love and it wrote my name above
And just a little talk with my Jesus made me whole

Have a little talk with Jesus tell him all about our troubles
Hear our fainted cry answer by and by
Feel a little prayer wheel turning know a little fire is burning
Find a little talk with Jesus makes it right

Sometimes my path grows drear without a ray of cheer
And then a cloud of doubt may hide the day
The mists of sin may rise and hide the starry skies
But just a little talk with Jesus clears the way
Have a little talk with Jesus…

I may have doubts and fears my eyes be filled with tears
But Jesus is a friend who watches day and night
I go to him in prayer he knows my every care
And just a little talk with my Jesus makes it right

Have a little talk with Jesus…
Find a little talk with Jesus makes it right
