Trusting God’s plan – Prayer for October 13. God gives us hope and dreams for our lives. But He does not always give us insight into His exact plan and schedule. While this is sometimes frustrating, it is often what keeps us on our toes. As we embrace and trust God’s plan, we learn to live with hope and enjoy life while God works on our problems.
Bible Verse for Today
“When Pharaoh let the people go, God did not lead them on the road through the Philistine country, though that was shorter. For God said, “If they face war, they might change their minds and return to Egypt.” So God led the people around by the desert road toward the Red Sea. The Israelites went up out of Egypt ready for battle.” (Exodus 13:17-18)
Exodus 13:17 reports that God led the Israelites the longer, more difficult way through the desert. He knew that they were not yet ready to move to the promised land. He needed time to raise them, and they had to go through some difficult things. But all the while, God took care of them and showed them what He wanted them to do.
The same goes for our lives. God’s plan requires us to do what He tells us and when He says so – without questioning him or trying to understand everything. No matter how long it takes, we can be sure that it is better for us to accept and trusting God’s plan.
