A path to peace ...
Instead of trusting God to unfold His perfect plans in His time and His way, we want to know what God knows so we can micro manage His work in our lives.
God doesn't work that way.
We shouldn't either.
God does know what He has planned for us, and knowing He knows should ignite peace in our minds and hearts.
"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.
Not only does God have plans for us, He assures us His plans will be good for us. Trusting God with what He knows is our path to peace. We don't have to know everything when we know God knows. We can find rest in trusting His perfect knowledge, and have peace in His promise of His plan being good.
Do you trust God to know your future? Or are you anxious about His plans for you?
