A Great Plan!
"For I know the thoughts and plans I have for you", says the Lord, "thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome".
The Lord sees not only what you are right now, but also what you can become. He knows the plans He has for you and they are good plans for progress and success, not defeat and failure.
God does have a plan for our lives, but we have to participate in that plan for it to come true. God is not likely to do anything in our lives without our cooperation. We need to cooperate with God each and every day of our lives in order for our potential to be developed. Every day we ought to learn something. Everyday we ought to grow. Everyday we ought to discover something new. Everyday we ought to be a bit further along than we were the day before. We should be "lifetime learners".
We must understand that no other human being on the face of the earth can develop our potential for us. We must each discover our own God-given gifts and talents, what we are truly capable of, and then put ourselves to the task of developing those gifts, talents, and capabilities to their fullest extent.
God has a plan for each of us. It is a good plan, an uncommon plan, a great plan!
