It’s a Perfect Plan!
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” Jeremiah 29:11
Jesus is our model. All our striving is aimed at becoming like Him; thus, it’s imperative to learn how Jesus responded to difficult situations. Problems don’t automatically produce what God intends. Many people become bitter rather than better and never grow up. You have to respond in the way Jesus would respond to every situation.
As a Christian (Christ-like), whenever you’re faced with challenges and difficult situations, the first thing to remember is the sturdy ability of God, and that God’s plan for you is good. God knows what is best for you and has your best interests at heart. Do not allow challenges or tribulations to break you, but believe, and rely wholly on God. It’s not about our plans or problem; it’s about what God is doing through it.
It’s essential to stay focused on God’s plan, and not on your pain or problem. That was the secret of Jesus’ sustenance even while death was beckoning on Him. Endurance requires you to remember that your pain is temporary, but your reward is eternal. It is not comfortable being in a situation where you are constantly being pushed down by life’s circumstances. But base upon the infinite wisdom of God’s plan, you can overcome any obstacle. When we have faith in God’s will for us, we know He will turn the tide of our troubles into victory.
Therefore, I submit to you this day that your focus will determine your feelings, and your feelings will determine your reaction. Don’t give in to short-term thinking; stay focused on the result. Hold on and hold out. Endure and be refined, that “Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.” God does not forget His own; it’s only humans that neglect God. Do wait on God! Psalm 62:8 says, “Trust in God at all times, you people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us.”
1. Lord, let what I’m passing through bring You glory in Jesus’ name.
2. Isaiah 10:27; Every yoke of delay in my (mention that issue), in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, be wasted, broken, and destroyed now by the anointing.
