Do you believe that God has a plan for your life? Do you know what that plan is?
Many of us are familiar with the passage of scripture Jeremiah 29:11 -- “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.”
This scripture is a promise that God not only has a plan for our lives, but his plan for us is GOOD!
However, some of us may find ourselves in a scenario where our lives feel more like disaster instead something good. When we find ourselves in this scenario, it often means that we are out of sync with God’s plan for our lives, and we are in need of a reconnection with God.
So how do we stay in sync with God’s plan for our lives?
Scripture is full of ways we can do this, but these are a few ways to make sure that we are synced up with God.
1. Call upon the Lord | Romans 10:13
If there is any uncertainty about your eternity, all you have to do is call upon the name of the Lord, and you will be saved. This is a good plan for your life, but to come into sync with it, you must be willing to call upon the name of the Lord.
2. Wait upon the Lord | Isaiah 40:31
There are a lot of people who feel like they are fainting. Many of us feel weary, and most of us feel like we have never truly soared to our true potential. This is a result of us being out of sync with God’s plan to wait on the Lord so we can experience our strength renewed according to His power. When we decide to wait upon the Lord, it puts us in sync with His good plan for our lives.
3. Choose the narrow path | Matthew 7:13
It is important that when we make decisions in our lives, we do not choose to live in the gray areas of scripture. Instead, we must choose the narrow interpretation of scripture because it is what leads to life. When we choose the narrow path, it results in living a life in sync with God’s plan for our lives.
4. Ask for wisdom | James 1:5
God does not desire that we go through life confused. That is not part of His plan for us. However, wisdom does not happen by default. We have to ask God for wisdom if we are to be in sync with His plan.
5. Lean not to your own understanding | Proverbs 3:5-6
God will use the foolish things to confound the wise. Rarely does God’s plan make sense when we try to rationalize it with our understanding. That is why we must choose not to lean on our understanding if we are to stay synced up with God.
When we stay connected to God’s Word, we stay in sync with Him. And when we stay in sync with God, we will experience the good plans that He has for us!
