God has plans. From the very beginning when He created this world, He had a plan. For day and night, heavens and earth, land and sea, sun and moon, birds and fish, animals and humans, He has always had a plan.
God has a plan when we don’t know which way to go.
And just four verses into His Word, we see that He likes His plan. He calls it good. Indeed, near the end of creation, He calls His plan very good. Genesis 1. His plan is good because of the purpose it will serve.
It is good because of the hope it will give. It is good because of the lives it will save. But really, it is good simply because of the God who calls it so. Creation had only to be created for it to be called good.
But still, God has plans.
He has them for you. He knows the hairs on your head, the thoughts in your mind, and the hours that you will live on this earth. He would not leave such attention to detail merely to chance. God has plans for you, and they are good.
Here are fifteen Bible verses that prove that God has plans for your life.
Releasing control draws us into a deeper place of trust.

\r\n\twhat does god's plan look like for me?
Forgive me, but I believe we must give balance of also emphasizing our free choice. I do not think God has a completely plan for everything, for example which tea we will drink tomorrow. Thanks, David S.
In the Galilee. Hi David… Could I offer my thoughts to you? First, Jeremiah does not question free will. It affirms it. Meaning: You have the freedom to recognize the truth of the statement — that a God created you; and b as such, He God through Jeremiah is telling you He did it for a specific reason; and c that He God willingly will help you discover what that purpose is. All you need do is ask. During that process, can you drink the brand of tea you wish? You see: That step of being quiet and listening Psalm is crucial to enabling God to fulfill his promises to you.
In fact, you may receive the opposite of your desires. Yes, God may not choose the tea we are to drink, however, His Spirit in us directs us to make the right choice. They can cause a great amount of anxiety, fear, and stress, especially when one is completely clueless about what the future holds for him or her.
Thanks for this. One correction. This verse is listed wrong. Hi Mark! Thanks so much for catching that! Blessings to you! To say that God has a plan is completely true.
He is Sovereign and all knowing. This means, as Psalm says, each day was planned before one of them came to be. Because God knows everything, He already knew your poor mistakes, your choosing of sin, and the consequences that will come to be because of these rebellious choices.
8 encouraging verses about god's plan for your life
He has already planned how to bring good out of our rebellion, how to bring you closer to Him through your sins. And yes, He knew which tea you would pick. One must expand their view of God. I completely agree with what you have written. I hope this post could reach more people as this was truly an interesting post. We all have a purpose; something destined by God for our lives.
Yet to fulfill our purpose, we need to be rooted and grounded in our Faith. His plan is for our salvation.
We are under the new covenant, not the old. We have total and complete free will. I am really encouraged by your sharing! Thanks so much for the great insights as well! God Bless!
America is looking for something real, the practical life of Jesus needs to be seen in our lives every day. May God use your ministry to help people see this simple fact. My ears stopped completely up and I could not hear.
Never miss a chance to do the most good
I was called stupid, made fun of…. It almost took my will to live. I cry as I type this… still releasing the pain from so many years ago. WOW, just overwhelming. I had not had one issue since then. Not being able to hear I felt lost and in my own locked mind. I can not read lips since everyone is wearing a mask … it is overwhelming.
During meetings I could not hear and I could not figure out what was going on. I prayed and ask God to reveal.
Now look author of 13 books and 11 in the last year. English, spelling, grammar and punctuation… I failed. I created a Hearing Loss and Deaf campaign to bring awareness. After 7 weeks and changing my medication 3 times and a lot of prayer, my hearing has been completely restored!
Sometimes we have to look back to see what we have overcome makes us realize how grateful we need to be. To God be all the Praise and Glory… we all have purpose…. The hurt, pain and shame God will use for His glory. We must share our trials and our stories to encourage others. SO still asking the direction from on how to go about it.
