Devotional: When Plans Change
Christian Devotion about our disappointment when plans change
"...Come now, you who say, Today or tomorrow we will
go into such and such a city and spend a year there
and carry on our business and make money. Yet you do
not know [the least thing] about what may happen
tomorrow. What is the nature of your life?..." -
James 4:13-14 (AMPC)
We have all been in the situation of making plans or
thinking that something will happen in a certain way,
and then it all changes. It brings such disappointment
and takes a lot of adjustment even causing us to
question whether we have heard from God or not.
Things don't always happen in the way that we hoped it would.
God allows it to happen differently for a reason. We may
never know why this side of Heaven—but no experience
is ever wasted. I guess we can only trust that God knows
what's best for us. I don't think making plans as such is
wrong, but I guess maybe we need to be more adaptable,
prepared for a re-direction if God has other plans for us.
What we've planned may not go our way,
For God has a better plan that He's made.
