Learning God has a Plan

I should have learned this a long time ago. I most likely will forget it soon even now as I am going through it. God has a plan. We have plans, but God really has a plan. God's plans will always override your plans. When your plans don't work out, it is most likely because your plans did not line up with the God's plans.

Dreams and visions come from God. They usually begin with a 'right now' and end with the dream or vision in mind. But the plans to accomplish your dreams and visions have been laid out and prepared by God. We need not get frustrated when our plans don't work out like we thought they should. They just didn't fit in to the overall plan God had.

Jeremiah 29:11
I know what I'm doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.
The Message

1 Corinthians 2:9
No one's ever seen or heard anything like this,
Never so much as imagined anything quite like it—
What God has arranged for those who love him.
The Message
