God Interrupted Plans

"God interrupt whatever we are doing so that we can join You in what You're doing." -Francis Chan

Just as God interrupted Elisha’s plans as he plowed a field to make him Elijah’s successor as prophet of Israel, and just as God interrupted Saul’s travel plans to kill Christians so that he would become the Apostle Paul to write half of the New Testament, God will interrupt our plans to accomplish His will for our lives.  I can count time after time when I was intent on doing it my way only to have God interrupt my plans.  While these interruptions can seem frustrating at first, ultimately, it’s God’s will for our lives, and not ours, that bring us lasting fulfillment.  Whenever we go through setbacks and discouragement when things do not pan out the way that we’d planned, let us remember to rely on God because He is in control, and also that He can use these adversities to make us more Christlike if we let Him. 

Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails (Proverbs 19:21, NIV).
