Are you worried that you will miss out on God’s plan, specifically by missing out on “The One”?
Guess what – you can not screw up God’s plan for your life.
Early in college, I dated a guy who was a Christian, but was not running after Jesus. I was afraid to break up with him because I thought, “What if I mess up God’s plan? What if this is the guy I’m supposed to marry?” Throughout the relationship, the Holy Spirit kept showing me that I should break up with him. If he was “Mr. Right”, there would not have been so many red flags.
I had to continuously remind myself – I can’t screw up God’s plan. Even after the break up, I worried I had screwed up. I believed I had made a mistake, so I actually tried to get back together with him. Thank goodness God did not allow that to happen.
I tried to get back together because I still believed that a boyfriend would fill the hole in my heart, and if I did not make it work with him, I could miss out on God’s plan.
Thankfully, the Bible tells us to not worry about God’s plans for our lives.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:6-7.
What can we learn from this?
God wants us to not be anxious about finding “The One”.
God wants us to pray to him and thank him for all the gifts he blesses us with daily.
God wants us to pray to him and ask him to meet all our needs, including the desire in our heart to be married.
God will provide peace in our season of singleness.
God will guard our hearts and minds because of Jesus.
If you are worried that you will miss out on “The One”, remember those truths. You can not miss out on God’s plan for your life – that is just impossible.
Action Step: Ask God to help you trust him that his plans are perfect.
Prayer: Dear God, I pray that you would help your daughters know how much you love them. Help us trust you in our season of singleness. Help us know that we can not mess up your plan for our lives. Give us patience and meet our every needs. Love, Joy.
