God’s will hurts sometimes. It hurts because sometimes it makes us uncomfortable. Sometimes it makes us angry. Sometimes it makes us feel like we’re all alone. Sometimes, scratch that, oftentimes, His will is NOT our way.
The Word of God says, in Proverbs 16:9, “We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps.”
I’m often reminded of this scripture whenever I experience disappointment. The disappointment that I feel whenever things don’t go according to my plans is confirmation that God has another plan. Sometimes the plan is to keep trying. Sometimes the plan is to wait. Sometimes the plan is to be still.
What’s important is knowing that the steps you’re taking are in line with God’s will for your life, because even if the way that you went about it failed in your eyes, there was a purpose. Sometimes the purpose is a lesson we needed. Sometimes the purpose is to benefit someone else in a positive way. There’s always a lesson, but the greatest lesson is learning to trust God during those difficult seasons of disappointment and uncertainty, because if we are allowing God to lead our life, we are on the right track, and nothing that happens is by coincidence or by mistake. God has a plan.
