“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.
Most times in life we experienced alot of challenges, disappointments, negative criticisms from even some of the closest persons in our circle. But one thing we can rest assure in is that God’s plan for us is totally different than the plans that we have lay out for ourselves, we just have to trust in him and let him lead. Sometimes in life it takes a great disappointment for us to strengthen our faith or put us in the right direction with God. Nobody knows what the plans of God until we submit ourselves fully to him.
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.
So no matter what our thoughts may tell you, in doubts:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.
And we can rest assured in him.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Whenever in doubts always remember that God believes in you and he will equipped us with the right tools. He does not gives us what he knows we cannot bear. So just remember that:
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Another thing that can discourage us is when we pray and expects an answer from God right away. But we need to understand that God’s timing is different from ours.
Wait on the Lord : be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord .
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:28 KJV
We can surely rest assured in the Lord!!!
