Have you ever needed to make a decision and felt the weight of the world sitting on your shoulders? In these times it’s so easy to feel like we can mess it all up. It’s a really challenging thing to come to a crossroad in life and not feel like the stakes are high. I love the Bible verse Jeremiah 29:11, “‘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.’” Did you catch that God has plans? Not just one single plan? He’s a good Father, not a circus ring leader trying to get you to walk a tightrope through life! Check out this week’s Flashback Friday to hear more about God’s many plans for your life:
I really want you to get this—You cannot mess up God’s purpose for your life! He has many plans to get you to your purpose. So today, let’s take the high stakes out of the equation of our destinies, take the weight of the world off of our shoulders and take a deep breath. God wasn’t surprised or panicked that there was no room for Jesus to be born in an inn. In the same way, He’s not surprised that your life has not been perfect. Perfection was never the plan. And guess what? Whatever decisions you’re facing today, He is with you in them and He’s championing you into the incredible purpose He has set before you. I want to encourage you that no matter where you’re at in your journey, keep pressing forward and pressing into Him. He’s good, and He’s got your back! Do you struggle with a religious tightrope mentality? How do you work through that? I’d love to hear from you in the comments!
