2 Peter 2:9
The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
Are you confident in God’s plan?
“I got this.” That is the phrase used when a person is confident in their ability to handle the problem at hand. The Lord God says “I got this” all day, every day.
Philippians 2:13 For it is [not your strength, but it is] God who is effectively at work in you, both to will and to work [that is, strengthening, energizing, and creating in you the longing and the ability to fulfill your purpose] for His good pleasure. (Amplified Bible AMP)
He has a plan for you, and He always provides a way of escape. God knows you better than you know yourself. He knows what to allow for your making and what to hold back to prevent your demise.
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,” says the Lord, “plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” (Amplified Bible AMP)
His plan also extends to the unjust. Though it may seem they are getting away with misdeeds, not reaping what they have sown, laughing in the face of God and living beyond consequences, the Bible says,
Psalms 27:1-2 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. ( KJV)
Always ask the Lord to help you be confident in His plan for your life, not yours. Refuse to let anything move you. Live a fixed and committed life and ask God for the strength, power, and conviction to stand by His plan until you see it come to pass. Be at peace knowing “God’s got this!”
Please agree with me as I pray:
Father, I am so glad You promised to keep me and bring me into Your presence faultless. It’s not my job to do it, but it is my job to stay out of Your way and allow You to do it. I don’t have to look around me, compare myself to others. I repent for the times I did, and it made me feel like I was failing. You showed me how that attitude meant I was diminishing Your sovereignty, trusting what I saw, and not trusting You. You knew the end at the beginning. You have a purpose for my life. The work You began in me, You will perform. These are truths I am armed with, stand on, and hold on to. I don’t have to fix myself. I must trust in You. I must allow You to correct me. I must heed Your word and do what You say do. If I do, it shows I am confident in Your plan. I don’t have to know all the details about what You’re doing. I know You love me…
