I want to make you happy and give you purpose in life—and it is within My power to do so. I have answers to your questions, solutions to your problems, and insight into the complex situations you encounter. I want to share all of that and more with you, but you must also do your part.
When you ask for My guidance, I give it,1 but you must first be willing to set aside your own ideas and plans.2 That can be difficult, especially if you have your heart set on something that you’re not sure I will agree is best for everyone concerned, or the right time for. When faced with such tests, remind yourself of Bible promises—“Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart,”3 and “No good thing will God withhold from those who walk uprightly,”4 for example. If your desire is truly to find and follow My plan, I will give you the best.
I know your past, present, and future. I understand your needs and desires, your aspirations and fears. I know everything about you. The more you learn to seek and follow My plan for your life, the more likely you will be to find genuine happiness and fulfillment. The choice is yours.
