That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him”. 1 Corinthians 2:9 (NLT)
Think of this today, beloved one—you have a whole year ahead of you, day upon possibility filled day, that add up to weeks, that turn into months—all spread out before you in the most wonderful ways. Will they be days of joy and life? Hope and happiness? Freedom and favour? Or will they be days of doubt and despair? Pain and pretending? Anger and frustration?
That may actually depend a little on who you listen too! Friends, family, or foes all want a say in what your days should, could, or might be like? But there is only One Who knows the truth and exactly the way your life is meant to be. And that is your God, Who has planned and purposed your every moment, thinking each one through before anyone else ever could.
Silence the sound of other voices, pressures, demands, fears, or regrets, and listen most especially to what God has to say! Dear heart, you can’t even imagine what love has planned for you. It is all too wonderful to comprehend!
Slip your hand into His and walk into these grace gift days with Him. See the miracles He has prepared; the love that is yours; the wonders waiting to unfold. It’s all for you, beauty, because He loves you. Oh, how He loves you so!
Gracious and loving Father, I thank You that You care for me so deeply, so truly, so kindly, with such tenderhearted and devoted love. You know my days and understand all of my ways. Forgive me for trying to manage all the decisions on my own, or bowing to the pressures of others. For listening to the lies that say I am not enough or I am too much. In You I am perfect and I am complete! And on Your paths of peace, perfectly planned for me, is fullness of joy!
Lead me and guide me Jesus, I pray. Keep me close to the Father’s heart, walking in His ways!
