A Change of Plans : Part 1
It is said that “we can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.” Proverbs 16:9
We all have plans, dreams and desires.
We see ourselves doing something, accomplishing something and being someone.
But what if those plans had to change abruptly?
What if God has a different plan for you, would you be willing to let go and let God?
Mary had big plans being a young Israelite woman.
She was going to be married, maybe even have one of those nice Jewish weddings, where glass is broken, gifts are given and everyone Hebrew shuffles down the street.
The dream! She might have even envisioned herself with a nice normal family.
Suddenly Mary is visited by an angel sent by God, and everything changes.
Her life would never be normal having the Son of God in her possession.
God, through an angel, reveals His plans for Mary’s life, she never argues, she doesn’t hold on to her past dreams or desires. She simply gives it all to God and follows His plans.
In fact, Luke 1:47-55 shows Mary rejoicing and praising God.
“For He who is mighty has done great things for me, and Holy is His Name.”
Can we, like Mary, accept Gods plans for our lives?
Can we humble ourselves before the Lord and walk in obedience?
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11
Gods plans are far better than anything we can think of. How will you accept the changes he gives you today?
If you don’t know Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, we want to pray for you.
Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. I believe You died for my sins and rose to give me life. Right now, Lord, I turn from my sins opening my heart and life for You to come in. I receive You as my Lord and Savior. Thank You for saving me. Amen.
