The Lord’s Purpose Prevails


Proverbs 19:21

“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.”

We are all born for a purpose…to fulfill our God-given destinies. Our purpose is already predestined, all we need to do is submit and surrender to God’s will. We need to ask God to show us His purpose for our lives. We may have many plans for ourselves but in the end it is the Lord’s purpose that will prevail. We should always plan in partnership with God. When we have a plan, spend some time with God praying about it and ask for guidance and revelation. If God reveals that our plan is in accordance to His will than we need to have faith and perseverance. If it isn’t in His purpose than let it go and move on to God’s plan that always succeeds. There is such serenity when we surrender to God’s plan for our lives. Oppurtunitites appear, people will arrive to assist you, and the spiritual gifts you have will awaken. It is when we fight our purpose that we spend years frustrated and searching aimlessly. So let us not become discouraged when our plan doesn’t work out the way we wanted. Just know, that God has a better plan for us in mind.
