I have always had a desire to help others. When I was little, I had so many plans for myself. I wanted to be a teacher, then lawyer, then detective but my plans changed. After I earned my Bachelors and Masters degrees, I have been in the social work career and while I am not in the profession that I planned when I was younger, God has given me everything i asked for and more. See, while I sit in my office as a manager and look back at my life thus far, I realize that God allowed me to walk into different experiences to do everything that I wanted to as a child.
“I told you my plans, and you answered. Now teach me your decrees.” Psalms 119:26 NLT
I have taught Sunday school to children and adults, I have interned with the public defender’s office and written petitions and testified for many different cases in court, and I have even worked with law enforcement for many different cases. See… before I got into the career that I am in now, I never knew that it existed, but God did. God also revealed that I have assignments to fulfill every day with the clients that I interact with. He let me know that there is something that HE will do through me every day, that HE will not do through others when I trust in him.
“You can make many plans, but the Lord’s purpose will prevail.” Proverbs 19:21.”
God knows everything about us before we were even conceived. He takes delight in us being happy and loves to grant the desires of our hearts when we are obedient. His plans are for us to prosper and he guides us every step of the way.
“For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
What has God confirmed for you in regards to plans?
