You plans for me are good Lord. Help me find the way.

“For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” ~ Jeremiah 29:11, AMP

“Show me the right path, O Lord;
    point out the road for me to follow.
Lead me by Your truth and teach me,
    for You are the God who saves me.
    All day long I put my hope in You.” ~ Psalm 25:4-5, NLT

“Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.” ~ Psalm 119:105, NKJV

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
    do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek His will in all you do,
    and He will show you which path to take.” ~ Proverbs 3:5-6, NLT

Your Plans for Me are Good, to Give Me a Future and a Hope

Father, Your Word is a lamp to my feet, a light to my path. You lead me in paths of righteousness for Your Name’s sake — Your plans for me are good.

My greatest desire is to live out my days in the center of Your perfect will — that’s where the blessings of protection and provision are found. That’s where my dreams come true and my heart is most full.

I want to hear You say, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” I want to bring honor to Your Name …

I know these things.

I desire these things.

You are my sure place, Lord. I put my hope in You.

And yet I fail so often. I’m given choices, and often I choose badly, I choose things that satisfy my flesh — things that take me away from Your perfect will. The easy way … the comfortable way. Please forgive me, Lord. Open my ears to hear Your still, small voice directing me in the way I should go. Give me the courage to obey.

Your road is one less traveled. Though it can be lonely, the companionship I find with You fills the void. In the one-on-One, I find out the essence of who You are. I learn what it means to be Your daughter.

You are my sure place, Lord. I have put my hope in You, for Your plans for me are good.

Do the Next Right Thing

As I intentionally keep my trust in You and lean not on my own understanding, You will direct my paths. I don’t need to understand, I don’t need to figure out how to get from A-Z, I need only to put my hand in Yours, keep my eyes on You, and take the next step. Do the next right thing.

Because Your plans for me are good, and I know I can trust You.

In the Name of Jesus, I pray,

Amen ~ let it be so
