“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
-Jeremiah 29:11 ESV
God desires good for His children (Romans 8:28). You can see this throughout the Bible.
Paul tells us more specifically what God’s will for our lives looks like in 1 Thessalonians 4:3, “For this is the will of God — your holiness.”
God does have a wonderful plan for your life, but that plan is salvation from His wrath that we deserve. And it is truly a wonderful plan. While we deserve eternal punishment, God made that payment through His Son, Jesus. God’s wonderful plan for our life is that we continually surrender the evil desires of our wicked flesh and conform to His image (Romans 12:2).
God’s perfect plan for our life is that we repent, believe in Him, and with His help, do not sin. God’s plan is for us to have sober-mindedness, sexual purity, and that we “walk not as unwise, but wise, making the most of our time because the day is evil” - Ephesians 5:15-16.
God’s plan is that He is glorified through us as we walk according to His will, and when we are walking in His ways, we will feel peace, joy and contentment in our hearts.
As Christians, we know that true joy is only found when we fully surrender our lives to Jesus!
