When God Changes Your Plans

I often find that no matter how much I try to figure out the outcome of a situation, God always has a way of changing my plans.

I’m a planner.  I like to figure things out, and choose the best way to approach life.  And yet, life never turns out quite like I expected, but in a good way.  God always reveals just what I need to know, but in His timing and in His ways.

I’m finding that life is much better when I leave it up to the God of the universe. He knows what He’s doing.  All I have to do is trust.

But often we set God aside and try to do life on our own.  We live according to our sticky note to-do list, instead of seeing the incredible life itinerary that God has for us.  We miss out on seeing the gospel in action and changing the lives of others, because we want to follow our own schedule.

I’m done trusting myself to make the plans.  I don’t know what the future holds, but I know Who holds to future.

The song “God is God” by Steven Curtis Chapman speaks so well to my life, and all our lives.  Please enjoy.

“God Is God”

And the pain falls like a curtain
On the things I once called certain
And I have to say the words I fear the most
I just don’t knowAnd the questions without answers
Come and paralyze the dancer
So I stand here on the stage afraid to move
Afraid to fall, oh, but fall I must
On this truth that my life has been formed from the dust[Chorus]
God is God and I am not
I can only see a part of the picture He’s painting
God is God and I am man
So I’ll never understand it all
For only God is GodAnd the sky begins to thunder
And I’m filled with awe and wonder
‘Til the only burning question that remains
Is who am I

Can I form a single mountain
Take the stars in hand and count them
Can I even take a breath without God giving it to me
He is first and last before all that has been
Beyond all that will pass

God is God and I am not
I can only see a part of the picture He’s painting
God is God and I am man
So I’ll never understand it all
For only God is God

Oh, how great are the riches of His wisdom and knowledge
How unsearchable for to Him and through Him and from Him are all things

So let us worship before the throne
Of the One who is worthy of worship alone

God is God and I am not
I can only see a part of the picture He’s painting
God is God and I am man
So I’ll never understand it all
For only God is God

Trust God with your future, my friends.  His plans are so much more that we can imagine.
It’s all for His glory!
