God's Plan and Purpose

God has a purpose and plan for every child of His: “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plan to give you hope and a future’” (Jeremiah 29:11). He knows this plan from even before we were conceived—in fact even before the foundation of the world: “For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight” (Ephesians 1:4).
If we make our plans apart from the Creator of the Universe, these plans will always be “less than,” or even completely opposite of what God truly wanted for us. “Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails” (Proverbs 19:21). It’s very important to communicate and listen to Him as He always wants the very best for us.
