Daily Delight

Recently, I have battled with feelings of unworthiness. I have battled with stress over the decisions I’m making and I’ve struggled with doubt. 


But I came to a place of trust and joy when I turned to God to put my life into perspective for me. And He spoke to me through a story in the bible. He told me, “Mankind’s weakness has never stopped My plans. I am faithful. Through your running, your mistakes, your shame, your doubt, I remain faithful. And when I come through with my purposes for your life despite your failures, it brings glory to Me alone! Child, this is about My strength, not your inadequacy.” Through Thomas’s doubts, through Jonah’s running and through the harshness of Saul, God's perfect plan prevailed. We can have trust in God’s plans for us because they don’t depend on our ability to “measure up” but on His Sovereignty, His grace, and His unending love. 


For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. - Jeremiah 29:11(NIV) 


God's plan for your life will not be stopped by your mistakes, your doubts, or the opposition of others. Our God is faithful. His love is relentless. His promises are true. Nothing will thwart Gods purpose for your life! So may we trust the Lord in everything for He is good and He is sovereign over all.
