God has a plan for you. Not only that. God is working on you, too. All the time. Are you standing in the way? Or are you opening yourself to God and helping to make you more and more well-off, happier, more free, more obedient to God, more joyful, healthier, all-around provided for?
“For I know the plans I have for you … plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you” (God in Jeremiah chapter 29, verses 11-14; NIV)
Are you running away from God? Or are you seeking his comforting presence?
Those who are afraid of God are going in the other direction (there devils and demons love to receive such people and lead them further away from God with feelings of guilt and anxiety).
Or do you always go to God, your loving Heavenly Father? Jesus has taken on all condemnation, accusations and punishments, so that you can have an unclouded relationship with God. Because only there can you find all the blessings that God has ready for you.
The most beautiful and great goal: you should and will become more and more like Jesus. Never forget (especially if you don’t understand what’s going on with your life right now): God has everything under control. God knows why this is happening or why that is still not yet happening. And all things work together for your good (Romans 8:28). What do you do? Keep going. Read Bible. Talk to God about everything. Seek His advice. And: faith and trust. “These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor …” (1 Peter 1:7; NIV)
