I say this because I know what I have planned for you,” says the Lord. “I have good plans for you. I don’t plan to hurt you. I plan to give you hope and a good future.
Did you know that God has a plan for your life? The plans that he has for you may not be what you expected it to be or what you planned it to be, but whatever God's plan for your life is, know that it will be great no matter if he has planned for you to be a teacher, a preacher, an author or a chef. But what God has planned for you is for his Glory.
In verse Proverbs 19:21 says, "People can make many different plans. But only the Lord’s plan will happen.
So no matter how much we plan, God's plan for us will always happen. God knows what is best for us because he created us for his special plan which is our purpose in life.
Jeremiah 1- 4:9
4 The Lord spoke these words to me:
5 “Before I made you in your mother’s womb, I chose you.
Before you were born, I set you apart for a special work.
I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
6 Then I said, “But Lord God, I don’t know how to speak. I am only a boy.”
7 But the Lord said to me, “Don’t say, ‘I am only a boy.’ You must go everywhere that I send you. You must say everything I tell you to say. 8 Don’t be afraid of anyone, because I am with you. I will protect you,” says the Lord.
9 Then the Lord reached out with his hand and touched my mouth. He said to me, “See, I am putting my words in your mouth. 10 Today I have put you in charge of nations and kingdoms. You will pull up and tear down, destroy and overthrow. You will build up and plant.”
God had called Jeremiah to be a prophet and to speak to many nations. But Jeremiah thought that the plan the Lord had for his life had to be a mistake because he thought that he was too young and did not speak so well to be a prophet. But God knew that Jeremiah would be a great prophet because that is what he created him to be.
