Life begins with important things such as your thoughts, decisions, choices and plans. If you allow God to lead in everything you do, you will always be a blessing. That is why He says His thoughts are not your thoughts. God has the best for your life.
The Lord God Almighty is omniscient and omnipotent. He always has better plans for his children. He rewards, destroys and gives out righteous judgment at all times. The Bible says God knows the thoughts he thinks towards you —and they are the best you could ever have; again it says “My thoughts are not your thoughts.” Christians should, therefore, trust God and allow Him to fulfill His good promises of a beautiful future.
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end”(Jeremiah 29:11).
It would be hard for some Christians to embrace the fact that God’s plans are not exactly as we have planned. Instead, if our thoughts and plans correspond with that of God then surely it will manifest for everyone to know. Without saying much, I would like to remind you that how God does his work is still a mystery to the human brain, we only need to trust him.
Surely He has better plans than we ever have. Just like He has said “My thoughts are not your thoughts” I would recommend reading my full article about God’s will to understand how He is planning to make you a Successful person in the presence of your enemies and doubters.
Don’t Stress To Figure It Out All The Time
Although God has given you a functional brain to think, plan and solve problems. But this ability is limited. In cases where you feel like everything is lost, that is the moment that proves that with man it is impossible but with God all things are possible.
Don’t overthink or feel anxious about tomorrow or what will happen in the future. If you truly believe in God, then maintain your faith and surely you will move mountains through the power of God.
Worries can steal your joy and every good thing you have. God knows best so go down on your knees and pray for his help. He surely has better plans for you.
What Is The Meaning Of Jeremiah 29:11?
In Jeremiah 29:11 God drew the attention of the Israelites that He is all-knowing so they should submit to His plans without being doubtful or afraid of the future. Because He has something good for them in the long run.
It all happened in 597 BC when several thousand of Jerusalem’s most capable people were captured by Babylon. They thought all hope was gone. But the Lord spoke to assure them that there is something better that is yet to come. He knows the beginning and ending of everything.
“Who announces the end from the beginning and reveals beforehand what has not yet occurred, who says, ‘My plan will be realized, I will accomplish what I desire” (Isaiah 46:10)
What Does “My Thoughts Are Not Your Not Means?”
God said his thoughts are not the thoughts of His people to prove that He is unlimited in knowledge and strength. He is still a just God who rewards people according to their deeds. So He promised them a brighter future if only they will obey Him.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” says the LORD. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8 – 9)
It was a condition given to the people of Israel to obey God and enjoy a blessing far beyond borders. If these rebellious people respond to God’s purposes for them, then the divine blessings will be given to them in abundance.
In addition, everything they had lost would be restored through the unrestricted power of God.
Interestingly, after the Israelites became slaves in Babylon for 70 years, God brought them home through His magnificent plans and restored to them everything they lost. He can do the same to you so believe in the mysterious plans of God for your life.
This is a call-up message for all Christians living today to be obedient to God in all circumstances. God rewards people who trust and worship Him in truth. He is a miracle-working God whose thoughts are always higher, bigger and better than the best plans of humans.
God is incomparable so allow Him to lead you in every decision you are making. Let Him take the lead by praying for guidance for your life, marriage, job, business, etc.
The Lord sees what is ahead in the future. He will take you through the best route and give you a successful future full of peace, happiness and blessings.
