God Has a Better Plan

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29: 11

When you give your heart to Jesus, one of the most obvious changes in your life is your attitude. That’s because, when you fall in love with Jesus, His love flows through you and affects everything that you do. Without God, life is dark and hopeless! But when you give your heart to Jesus and are fully surrendered to Him, your whole attitude changes. You won’t be asking, “Is life worthwhile?” or “Why am I even here?” because God will fill your mind with purethoughts, and the Holy Spirit’s strength will cause Satan and his evil angels to flee. So when your day doesn’t go the way you planned—you were passed over for that promotion, the rent is due and your bank account is empty, or you didn’t get the diagnosis you were hoping for, instead of pouting or blaming God, remember your life belongs to Jesus. Choose to have a Christian attitude and say, “God has a better plan!”
