With the holidays just behind us, you've probably recently heard (perhaps from some dear extended family member) the question, "what're your plans for your life?" in some form or another. It's normal as humans to attempt to map out our lives as we please, but the Christian life is designed to be lived in a different way. God, the creator of our being, also has created a plan for us. We will not know every piece of that plan now, but how often do we even take the time to ask? Or dream?
The Bible says, "Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!"(Psalms 34:8) so let's start tasting! It also says God will, "give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed." (Psalm 20:4)
In this physical world it's easy to think it's up to us to figure it all out, or know our limitations and stick to them, but we are call to live life in a not so normal way. Today take some time and dream! Ask God what he has for you, and allow your heart to dream, because He is limitless in power and loves to give good things to those who seek Him.
Here are a few more promises to hold to as you dream today:
In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps-Proverbs 16:9
Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans. In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps-Proverbs 16:3
In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will-Ephesians 1:11
