Here is what most of those who truly love the LORD do not get – to have His protection, His promises, His plans, His Divine guidance and His perfect will expressed in our lives.
We have to fully yield and submit ourselves to Him and to His plan at all times and in all things.
We cannot make some choices and in others choose to seek His plan.
We cannot live our dreams and yet somehow expect what He has dreamed for us to find its way into our lives.
Many people fail to see God’s best for them, and suffer circumstances that He never intended for them to have to go through, simply because He does not have full access and full control over their lives.

We cannot say that we believe God when we cannot trust Him enough to lead and guide us into His original plan for our lives that He has foreordained for us.
So long as we still have our own plans and dreams that seems more attractive to us, we have not come to the place of believing that no dream for us could ever be better than what He has chosen for us, before we ever had the privilege to draw our first breath on earth.
“I know the plans that I have for you, says the LORD, plans to prosper and not to harm you…” Jeremiah 29:11.
