Jeremiah 29:11 tells us that God has a plan for each one of us and that His plan is to prosper us, to give us peace, to give us hope, and above all, to give us a blessed future. This is a promise from God, but the only way we will inherit that promise is to completely submit our will to the will of God.
The Bible tells us that God’s ways are not our ways nor are His thoughts the same as our thoughts, and this truth was evident in the biblical story of Gideon when he fought the Midianite army. Gideon’s battle plan was based on having an army of 32,000 men, but God ultimately reduced that number down to just 300 men. In the natural, God’s battle strategy looked hopeless but it wasn’t Gideon’s job to question God’s plan, it was Gideon’s responsibility to obey and do what God commanded him to do. Because of Gideon’s submission and obedience to God, Gideon and his 300 men were victorious.
You might find yourself in the middle of something that looks humanly impossible to overcome, but God has a plan for you – a better plan, and if you will surrender, submit and possess an unwavering level of faith in Almighty God, you will see God begin to work everything out for your good. Whatever Satan has meant to use to do you evil, God will turn it around. There is nothing impossible with God. Do not lose hope. Do not settle for less than God’s best for you. Trust your heavenly Father at all times and be confident of this one thing – that God loves you and He expects you to have the future that He has planned for you – a future better than you can even imagine.
