God's best plan

God's thoughts are way bigger than our thoughts. Our thoughts may be, "Oh, I am not good enough, I have so many problems, I can't live like that person, I am failing in this area always, I have no future", but God's thoughts are always for our good and is always good. He desires to deliver us from all our sicknesses, from all our pain. He thought to die for us and to give His life for us. That is how big His thoughts are about us. It is because He loves us. So we can put all our burdens, our sicknesses, our failures, our problems and everything upon Him. When we do that He gives us His freedom. Because we believe Him, He will give His thoughts to us teaching us the way we should go, the things we should do and the future we need to walk into. He will guide us with His thoughts. He will fill us with His wisdom to lead us into a good life.

In the Bible, we read about the life of Peter. He was a fisherman. Once, as Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.”  At once they left their nets and followed him. Peter loved fishing but at the call of Jesus, he left his fishing net and followed Jesus. But after Jesus rose back, Peter again went back to fishing. He forgot the call of God in his life. So Jesus appeared to him again by the sea while he was fishing and makes breakfast for him. When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” “Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.” Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.” The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my sheep (John 21: 15-18).
 Jesus kept writing on the heart of Peter about His call to become fishers of men. Peter was a very timid person. He betrayed Jesus during the night of His arrest. But Jesus knew what Peter would become. So He revealed to Peter that he would save souls. Just as Jesus said, Peter waited in the upper room for the anointing of the Holy Spirit. God sent His Spirit just as He said and being filled with the Spirit he ministered to 3000 people and they were added to the church on that day. Peter did mighty miracles and the church was established by him. Today, are you also wondering how God's call will fulfil in your life? Just ask Jesus to reconfirm His will. God will surely show His plans that are bigger than yours and lead you through it.
Prayer:
Loving Lord,

Thank You for reminding of Your call on my life. Lord, confirm Your call to me once again by speaking to me again. Mould me for it. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and give me the power that I need to carry out Your call. Let Your will be done in my life. This I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.
