All of us go through various stages in our lives. We start out as babies, move on to toddling, creep into adolescence and teen-dom (also known as the I know everything stage), jump feet first into a new world as an adult and at some point, if we’re lucky, we become empty nesters.
Then there are stages of employment: probationary period; part-time or full time employee; clerk; sales associate; customer service representative; manager; executive; administrator; CEO. (And too many more to list).
And the one thing all of these stages have in common is God knows exactly what each of us will face in our various stage of life. He knows what obstacles we will face, what successes we will have, because we are all part of His grand plan. He promises us in His Word that he has plans for all of us. Plans not to harm us, but to prosper us and give us hope and a future. (see Jeremiah 29:11)
It becomes a little tricky for us though, if we don’t follow His lead. If we go out on our own, without His protecting and Spirit, we are much like a sandstorm billowing out of control
We need to be in the Word of God daily, pray to Him, seek his guidance and wisdom and the biggest test is we have to trust him.
God will never take you on a journey, without equipping you to face the stages along the way.
Romans 8:31 New International Version (NIV)
31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us,who can be against us?
