Do You Trust God’s Plan for You?

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.”

Proverbs 3:5


Ponder This

God has a special plan for you. God doesn’t deal with us en masse. He deals with us as individuals. God makes no duplicates. Everything that God makes is an original. Just like every snowflake has its own specific pattern, God made you as an individual, and God has a plan specifically for you. The Bible says in Psalm 37:23, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord.” Is that not incredible? Every step you take is in His plan and in His purpose.

You may say, “Well, that’s true for those who God has called into His full-time service.” No. Listen to me. It is true for you. The same plan that is true for the preacher is true for the plumber. The same plan that is true for the missionary is true for the secretary. God has a plan for every individual life.

  • In what ways have you seen God’s specific plan implemented in your life?
  • What are some specific ways God might use you in the places He has put you that He might not use others?

Write out some ways you have seen God’s specific plan working in your life and the way He has used you uniquely for His purposes.
