THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: God’s plans are better than our own

Have your say

Daily we hear news and it seems that life can look quite bleak. Nations fighting their own! Is the Euro going to survive? So many people are experiencing redundancy and unemployment? It all seems very insecure.

Having experienced redundancy from an organisation I had worked in for nearly 30 years, I know first-hand how hard it is to manage the emotions of anger, financial insecurity, sadness and loss of status.

As a Christian I realise that my confidence does not come from what I own or possess, what I do or my status in life, but from God.

The Bible states clearly that God has a plan and a future for those who choose to follow Him. We read in 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.”

I felt secure in the knowledge that my life is in His hands and I can put my trust in Him. God’s plans for our lives are better than any we can make.
