His Plans

The LORD will work out his plans for my life—

for your faithful love, O LORD, endures forever.

Read Psalm 138:8, NLT

What a wonderful promise! The One who knows you best, the One who designed and created you, is will stay right with you through this employment journey and every other experience of your life, working out the plans He has for you. The psalmist who wrote this request lived before the time of Jesus. He knew that he wasn’t equipped to deal with life on his own, so he begged God to stay with him. Because of Jesus we don’t have to ask for His abiding presence—He will never leave us or forsake us because He now dwells within us! Never think that you’re in the job search alone or that God is waiting to re-enter your life when you become employed again. He’s with you and leading you now. You will not miss His destination for you if you seek His will. See yourself putting your hand into the Master’s hand and following wherever He leads.

I trust the plans that God has for me are good and only good.

I believe that God’s love towards me will never fail and I will never be left on my own.

By faith I trust that I will hear God’s voice and follow where He leads me.
