5/12/06 “Faith in God’s Plan”

We’ve been praying like crazy for God’s will, and for God’s plan for us to be revealed. Waiting is one of the hardest things to do, but we have been getting better at it.

A possible new job opportunity is being dangled in front of us right now. Maybe it’s too good to be true, maybe it won’t work out. But maybe it will. So many little things have fallen into place; we are convinced that God’s hand is in this opportunity. We just don’t know exactly what His plan will turn out to be.

We have complete faith in God’s plan. Clearly, whatever He has planned for us is much better than anything we could do on our own. This faith we have in His plan puts us in a mindset that what ever happens with this job will be exactly what God wants for us. There is no need to worry. It’s not up to us.

We thought we would get an answer this morning. Things didn’t fall into place the way we hoped and expected they would. So for now, we continue to wait to see what God’s plan for us will be. Waiting is really hard sometimes (I want to know RIGHT NOW!). I could get discouraged, or I could start worrying about things. Maybe making us wait just a little bit longer is part of God’s plan. It is giving us a chance to use our faith in Him, and know that no matter what, God will come through for us. He will never let us down.

This plan he has for us is not about us anyway. It’s all about Him, and what He wants.

I pray for His plan to be carried out perfectly, and I pray that He will abundantly give us His Mercy, His Favor, and His Love. I also pray that we will gratefully accept whatever He has planned for us, and that we are pleasing to Him in all we do.
