Everything Works Out

(Begin with 1-2 minutes of silence)

Have you ever experienced a challenging situation and wondered, Does God really have a plan for this?

You’re certainly not alone. We all experience confusion, doubts, angst, and even fear. So when difficult circumstances come our way, it’s natural to wonder if God really has a plan. 

But the Scriptures regularly remind us that God is sovereign. This means that He and He alone is in full control. While we have free will and can make our own decisions, He is still in control of a grand plan. 

Ephesians 1:11 reads, Furthermore, because we are united with Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for he chose us in advance, and he makes everything work out according to his plan.

Read that last line again slowly: …he makes everything work out according to his plan. 

Today, take two or three opportunities to pause and reflect on the truth that God has a plan and He will fulfill it. 

READING & PRAYERS:

EPHESIANS 1:11-14, ROMANS 8:28-30, ROMANS 11:36

On a scale of 1-10, what is your level of confidence that everything will work out according to God’s plan? 

Today, take two or three opportunities to pause and reflect on the truth that God has a plan and He will fulfill it.

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I confess that I often want to feel like I have full control over my circumstances, but today I am reminded that there is a lot that happens in life that falls outside of my control. Nevertheless, You continue to ensure that everything works out according to Your plan. This is a great mystery! But it’s a mystery I can rest in because I can trust that You are in control. Help me to rest in this truth today. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
