“The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord upholds them by His hand” (Psalm 37:23-24 NLT).
God promises to guide your every action as you take steps to achieve His will. The catch is to seek God’s dreams for you, not your own dreams. He knows you better than you know yourself, and He wired you from conception to live out His will. You can trust that His plans will bring you a satisfying and fulfilling life.
Here is an application step for you. This [upcoming] week pray every day for God to show you your next steps. What are the God given dreams He has for you for the days, months, and possibly year ahead? Ask a close friend or family member who knows you well to pray for you. As things come to your mind, talk to this person about it. See if she/he brings confirmation to what you sense God is telling you. Spend time in the Word to allow Him to use Scripture during your time of seeking. As new dreams come, begin to take steps toward them.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope” (Jeremiah 29:11 NLT).
Today’s Bible Reading: Proverbs 13:12 and Jeremiah 29:11
A Moment to reflect:
Do you believe in your heart that God has a plan for your life? That His plans will lead to a satisfying and fulfilling life?
How is your level of trust in Him right now? Are you willing to trust Him in those most vulnerable places? What is holding you back?
Put this week's action step (paragraph above) somewhere visible where you can remember to pray each day and have follow-up conversation.
God loves you sister, His dreams are greater than you can even imagine <3
