God has a plan for you.
I hear this phrase often. Many times, when difficult situations arise it will be said, God has a plan for you, or for this situation, or you don’t know what God’s plan is yet.
Does God really have a plan for me?
Often, this phrase said with a measure of genuine trust, that even though the situation is hard, our God is still in control and is still working for our good.
But so often, we feel that God’s plan is a mystery, something we have to discover or something we may never really know. It can get frustrating feeling like we never know God’s plan or that somehow we have failed it or messed it up.
Fortunately, God’s plan for you is not a mystery, never has been. The familiar passage of John 3:16 says it well.
For God so loved the world that he Gave his son that whoever believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
That is God’s plan. For you to have life through Jesus with hope and peace, both now and eternally.
That simple and that amazing.
The beautiful thing is that when you are baptized and believe in Jesus your savior, you don’t have to guess, you are already in God’s plan for you and always will be.
Yes God has a plan for you and Yes in Jesus you are already there.
