Isaiah 43:18-22( KJV) Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. The beast of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls: because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen. This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise. But thou hast not called upon me, O Jacob; but thou hast been weary of me, O Israel.
Juliet was born into a wealthy home but she was raised in a very moderate fashion. She had no special privileges but was brought up like every other child in the community. Her parents met her needs but she was not pampered. As she grew older, she became uncomfortable and would always ask “Dad, why am I being treated like a commoner when it’s obvious I’m not?” Her Dad’s response was always the same “I have good plans for you”.
Since her Dad will not change, she became angry, gave up on him. “I can fend for myself,” she said. But this did not ease her condition, it only worsened it.
Do you still trust the God whom you know created all things and owns all things but who ‘failed’ to grant your little request? Can you hear his gentle voice as He says “I have good plans for you” (Jeremiah 29:11)? Or are you going to give up on him and stop depending on Him?
The first step in appropriating God’s promises is believing and seeking God diligently. Hebrews 11:6 says “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”.
If you will ever benefit from the promises of God, you must believe Him against all odds and seek His will diligently.
Go into today knowing that God has good plans for you and the wise thing to do is to trust Him.
