Have you been asking God what He is going to do?

As a faithful Christian, I want to sync my plans with God’s plans.  In order to do this, I simply need to know His plans.

According to Oswald Chambers, this is easier said than done.  Chambers writes: God will never tell you what He is going to do. (1)

In Jeremiah when God said:

“I know the plans I have for you, plans for your welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” (2)

He did not promise to tell us those plans.

In the verses that follow God’s announcement that He has plans for you, God tells us how we learn of those plans:

“Call upon me and come and pray to me.  When you seek me and find me with all your heart, you will find me.” (3)

The only way to know God’s plans is to know Him.

God likes to keep it simple!

“Know God, know His plans!”

That’s a good plan for your new year.
