Have you ever asked, “Why not me, Lord?” Sometimes life’s disappointments make us question God’s plans. Even though we may think that we did everything right, ultimately we don’t get the outcome we hoped for. Perhaps you didn’t get a job that you really wanted, or didn’t get selected to be on the team, or even experience rejection from a failed relationship.
In my life, when I look at the big picture, I can see God’s plans are always better than my own. He wants more than anything to restore our relationship with Him. So much so that he sent His Son to die in our place. All He requires is that we trust Him and let him direct our paths. When He shuts a door, there is a reason. He has something far greater behind another door.
“I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
I encourage you to be thankful when God closes a door and be open to the new opportunity He has for you.
