Promise or a Plan?

Yesterday, I got some disappointing news. Normally, this would not have been a big deal but with all of the other things going on in my life, this sent me over the edge. I left work and drove to church to have friends pray for me.

After our impromptu prayer session, I was in the parking lot leaving, and The Holy Spirit said, “All things work together for your good. This will work to your benefit. This will turn out better than you can ask, think, or imagine.” Driving home, blasting worship music in my car, the peace of God flooded my car and my soul as was prayed for by my friends. I was at peace.

God does not always reveal the plan but he always reminds of the promise. Honestly, I prefer the plan. Give me next steps. Show me what I can do to make this better. I feel in control with a plan. But the promise requires trust. The promise builds faith muscles. The promise breeds hope, anticipation, peace. The promise causes us to rest.

I don’t have an answer to my problem. All I know is God is sending a better solution. All I know is that this will work out for our good because we love God and are called to according to his purpose. All I know is that his promises are yes, and amen. I have a promise. I choose to rest in the promise.

“And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose.”
‭‭ROMANS‬ ‭8:28‬ ‭AMP‬‬
