When Your Plans Fail


The plans of the Lord stand firm forever….

Psalm 33:11 NIV

Even if you know a plan or dream is from God, sometimes it is easy to get ahead of yourself and take the details of the plan into your own hands.

How many times has God given you a plan in which you decided not to include Him in all the decision-making? Did those plans turn out the way you thought they would? It’s likely, they brought you some pain and disappointment.

Consider the plans that God has laid out in your heart, especially the ones that were above and beyond what you could do on your own; the plans that He completely worked out, from start to finish. Did those plans turn out better than your own?

When you follow God’s plans for your life, you will include Him in the details. He is the One who is able to bring your dreams to fulfillment. He is the only One capable of bringing every detail of His plan together in a perfect way.

God has a plan for your life and desires to give you a life of joy! He only asks that you follow His every step to get there.

Prayer Focus

  • Thank God for sending you His Word.
  • Pray that God would have His way in every detail of your life.
