“I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good not disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
“I don’t know what to do after I graduate,” he said with a disappointed tones, “that’s why I do this.” Definitely my friend was having a difficult moment of decision. He’s not stupid, he just don’t want to graduate so soon. His famous line was: “I don’t want to get a job. I love my student life. I know it’s hard to get a job. Plus, the future is so fragile now. I’m worry about my future.” In short, he was not certain about his future.
He could graduate sooner but he made a decision to stay for a while and purposefully failed his exam paper. Over and over again he said, “I’m worry about my future.” I said to him, “Trust God.” I knew back then that I wasn’t really convinced by what I have just said to him. We all afraid sometime that if we trusting God, He may lead us to where we don’t want to go. If I trust Him, what would my future be? Me and Michael anak Bujang shared the same concern.
God’s plans are always good. Sometime it might seems so blur but the only way we can be sure that it’s always right is by trusting God. Don’t put your hope into things that change; relationships, money, talents, beauty and even health. Set your sights on the one thing that can never change: trust in God, your heavenly Father.
“I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. If He holds my future, why shouldn’t I trust Him? “They are plans for good not disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” His desires for you will fulfill and satisfy you. Since God alone knows the future, no one can plan for it better than He. He doesn’t care whether you’re been as pure as saints or as sinful as I am; all that matters is your trust in Him.
