God has a plan for you. Not only that. God is working on you as well. 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?
God has plans of good for you
“‘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. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. I will be found by you,’ says the Lord. ‘I will end your captivity and restore your fortunes. I will gather you out of the nations where I sent you and will bring you home again to your own land.'” (God in Jeremiah 29:11-14; NLT)
Run to God when trials come, not away from Him
Are you running away from God? Or are you looking for His proximity 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). • Do you draw near to God with fear?
Or do you always go to God, your loving heavenly Father? Jesus has taken on all allegations, 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.
Becoming more like Jesus
The most beautiful and greatest thing here: you should and will become more and more like Jesus. Never forget (especially when you don’t understand what’s going on in your life): God has everything under control.
God knows why this is happening or why something hasn’t manifested yet. And everything only leads to good for you (Romans 8:28). What do you do? Stay on track. Read the Bible. Talk to God about everything. Seek His advice. And: faith and trust.
“These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor …” (1 Peter 1:7; NLT)
