We all make plans. Business plans, weekend plans, wedding plans – the calendar is full and, if you’re like me, the to-do list starts afresh each new day.
God’s a planner, too. But unlike us (well, me anyway), his plans are always good, and he never fails to finish what he starts.
If you need a fresh awareness of God’s good purposes today – or simply a reminder that you can rest secure in the knowledge that He is on the job, no matter how upside down things may look right now – consider the promise in Psalm 138:8. As the NIV puts it, “The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me.”
Here’s how this verse appears in the New Living Translation. Pray it for yourself, or for someone you love:
Work out your plans for my life – for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever. Don’t abandon me, for you made me. (Psalm 138:8, NLT)
