God loves you, and His plan for you is always good. And that changes EVERYTHING!
Good afternoon- If you missed Part 1 or Part 2, I strongly encourage you to find it in your email feed and read it. I want to share the last points on “things you should not do when things don’t go as planned.”
Point #3 Don’t throw away your belief and confidence in the goodness and kindness of God.
Psalm 27:13–14 (NLT) 13 Yet I am confident I will see the LORD’s goodness while I am here in the land of the living. 14 Wait patiently for the LORD. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the LORD.
You will never understand everything that happens in your life, but this truth stands; God is still a good God. No matter what has happened or hasn’t happened, don’t let life’s struggles dictate what you are going to believe about God. Repel the enticement to throw away your confidence that you will see the “goodness while I am here in the land of the living.”
Point #4 Don’t panic, stay calm.
Your Father in heaven, God Almighty, knows the future. He does know what He’s doing. Did you know that He has already delivered an answer, a solution, an escape? God said in Jeremiah 29:11–14 (MSG) 11 I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for. 12 “When you call on me when you come and pray to me, I’ll listen. 13 “When you come looking for me, you’ll find me. “Yes, when you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else, 14 I’ll make sure you won’t be disappointed.” GOD’s Decree.
You can count on it. When things don’t go your way, take a deep breath and take a leap of faith and relax. He has a plan. Your future is bright. It’s going to get better!
