"God Has A Plan"
by Lorraine Ezell

"Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life" (Genesis 45:5).

Are you going through a situation this morning that you can't figure out? Are you wondering how you are going to make it? Are you fearful of the outcome? Do things look hopeless? Are you wondering how you are going to get out of it? Be encouraged this morning. You may not understand it, you may not have it under control, you may not be able to figure it all out, but you don't have to — God has a plan.

Whatever you may be going through this morning don't worry, don't fret, don't be anxious or fearful because while you may not understand it all or see anything good — God has a plan. His plan may be to reveal who He is to you in a greater way than ever before. It may be to work out His likeness in you. His plan may be to use what you are going through as a testimony to someone else. Who knows what His plan may be? His ways are not our ways and neither are His thoughts our thoughts. But know this — things don't just happen, our trials are not in vain and when they come, God has a plan. And His plan is to "work all things together for your good."

When you don't understand it, when you can't figure it out, when you don't know what you are going to do, just remember — God has a plan. So don't worry.
