πŸ•ŠοΈ Following Myself or God’s Plan? πŸ•ŠοΈ

I love reading Joyce Meyer books and watching her YouTube channel. Today, I came across an interesting question in her book, Get Your Hopes Up!

Am I aggressively following God, or am I asking God to follow me?

I realized that I’ve been happy to follow God’s will… as long as it was also my own.

But why? Why would I do this when I should have faith? The answer was simple. I was afraid that God’s plan would be too sacrificial, too involved, too difficult. That it might be too painful.

I just need to remember God’s infinite love for me.

Of course, the only reason I thought those thoughts is because I’ve been hurt before. I’ve been taken advantage of and abused. Trust doesn’t come easy, but it should when it comes to God.

So now I am determined to follow God’s plan.

He is infinitely wiser than me. He wants me to live a good life. And I am trusting, child-like, in whatever He has for me and my future.

Yari πŸ™

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9 NIV
