Daily Devotional – 6/5/15 “Trust God’s plan!”

I am a stern believer in faith and I also believe that if you do right by people that right will be done to you. I’m sticking to that belief. Even after having obstacles placed in my path, I still know there isn’t a man alive that can stop what God has for me. They can try but they cannot succeed and someone reading this post, at this very moment, needs to be reminded of that. Man cannot stop what it meant for you; stop giving them the power to think they can. Stop frowning in the midst of adversity, smile instead and show them you are not defeated. Stop getting angry when you think you’ve been overlooked, it just wasn’t your time. Stop giving up when doors keep closing, God may have stairs He wants you to take instead and you do know they take time to get you to your next level, don’t you. Enjoy the walk up. Stop fussing about the fact that others around you are getting blessed; rejoice with them because your time will come. You know this scripture but I’ll share it again just to remind you that no matter what it looks like – “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11).” Yea, you’re facing trouble but “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world (John 16:33).” Yea, man said you couldn’t but “Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans (Proverbs 16:3).” Yea, it may not look like it’s working in your favor now but – “We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28).” Oh, it doesn’t matter what “they” try because “those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified (Romans 8:30).”

You are right where you are supposed to be! Stop rushing the process and trust God’s plan! Stop worrying about the image man sees, trust God’s instruction! You might not be moving fast enough for your schedule but you’re right on time for God’s.
