God’s Plan for Your Life Is Beyond Your Expectation

“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him” (1 Corinthians 2:9).

Do you love the Lord? (Mark 12:30) If the answer is no, pray to God to give you the heart to love Him because according to our text, God has great things in stock for those who love Him (1 Corinthians 2:9). One of the major ways to show your love for God is by obedience to His commands and keeping His commandments (John 14:15). Keeping the commandments of the God is the whole duty of man, “…Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man” (Ecclesiastes 12:13).

As said by the Lord and written in the word, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord , thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end” (Jeremiah 29:11). The end the Lord has promised to give you is beyond your expectations. No matter the delay you may be facing, that expected end will surely come because what the Lord says you will be, that you will surely be and destiny can only be delayed but can never be denied.

Never doubt the Lord promises concerning your life even if there are difficulties, problems or delays along the way. He is the Lord and whatever He speak surely comes to pass (Lamentations 3:37). Wait on the Lord and don’t lose your patience with Him because He works in mysterious ways that the human mind cannot comprehend.

Don’t because of your quest for mundane things and pleasure miss the spiritual and heavenly riches the Lord has in stock for you. As Jesus has instructed us to labour for heavenly blessings that perish not and not for earthly things that loses it value and perish too soon (Matthew 6:19-20) .

You can only claim your blessing God desire for you when you turn from your sinful ways and move towards God. God has nothing to do with unrighteousness because He Himself is a righteous God and thus, the blessings He has for you may not come into reality if you continue in your sinful ways. Repent therefore, confess your sins to obtain pardon from the Lord (Romans 10:10).


Dear Lord Jesus, I thank you for your promises concerning my life and future (Jeremiah 29:11). Lord God I plead that you give me the heart to love you because the promise of an expected end is for those who love you (1 Corinthians 2:9). Help me turn away from unrighteousness and live a life that is pleasing to you so that you will fulfill all your promises concerning my life in Jesus name. Amen.
