Proverbs 19:21 says, “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails. I’ve always been taught that God has a purpose for everyone and everything that he created and I often wonder what exactly my purpose is because I have been living for thirty three years and I have yet to feel like God has shown me what his purpose is for my life. I wonder how it happens, is it something that I am supposed to figure out for myself or is God actually going to show me, will he give me some kind of sign? I have accepted that it will happen because I keep living which means God isn’t done with me, he has something for me to accomplish in this life.
My perspective on Proverbs 19:21, is that regardless of what we want for our lives, no matter what we plan for our lives, it doesn’t matter because God is always in control and his will, his predestined plan is always what is going to happen in our lives and we must learn to accept that fact. Earlier this week, I wrote a note to a family member in which I discussed how I think that when God shows someone their purpose, his reason, or at least one of his reasons for placing them in the world, that has to be an awesome occurrence in one’s life.
Romans 11:29 in the New International Version of the bible says, “For God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable., the New Living Translation version of that same scripture says, “For God’s gifts and his call can never be withdrawn. Therefore once God has shown you the gifts that he has given you to fulfill your purpose, or his calling upon your life no matter any circumstances you may face, other people’s opinions of your life and your own wants are really no longer your focus, because fulfilling God’s purpose becomes your sole passion in life, because many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.💜
