Recalculating: When Plans Change
What happens when the future we envisioned doesn’t come to pass. We all had high hopes for 2020 but some of us have had to change our plans. God had other things in mind. When things go terribly bad, how can we trust God? Let’s take a deep dive into what it means to make plans, how we should follow God’s plans for us, and whether or not those can be aligned together.
 
The Lord foils the plans of the nations; he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.
But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever …                                              
– Psalm 33:10-11a

We must understand, embrace, and accept the biblical principle that God is in control of our everyday lives. All believers’ plans must be couched within the context of God’s will and based on his Word. But does God MAKE you do things. Does His sovereignty mean you have no choice in the matter?

There are times when the Lord changes our plans and/or makes his plans very evident. The simplicity and beauty of knowing God’s plan for a season in a believer’s life depends on their “seeing” and then obeying his will. THEN, there are times when believers’ plans are changed by their own actions. Like Simon Peter, who we think we are and who God knows we are can be revealed to us which, in turn, results in a change of plans.

Text: Matthew 11:1–6
We are not guaranteed our preconceived conclusion (in this world) of God’s plan for us. Preconceived conclusions to God’s plan can create doubt as a believer experiences a change in their predetermined, though erroneous, assumption. So how do we turn doubt into faith?
