Daily devotional: God will fulfill His plans for me

Scripture
The Lord will work out his plans for my life--for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever. Don't abandon me, for you made me.
Psalm 138:8 NLT

Observation
It gives me great comfort and encouragement to know that not only does God have plans for my life, but He will fulfill those plans for me. He is capable, and nothing can stop Him. And His ways are amazingly better than my ways, just as in Ezra 5-6 where God used troublemakers complaining to the king about rebuilding the temple. The Lord caused the king to look favorably and actually funded and backed the temple's reconstruction. I am so glad to be on the Lord's side, to see Him work in amazing ways rather than fight against Him by trying to have my own way.

Application
Seek God diligently and follow the steps He has ordained for me. Thank Him for working out His plans for my life. Follow willingly and obediently.

Prayer
Lord, how awesome You are. You are amazing. Thank you for the joy and surprises You have in store for those who follow after You. Please mold me and make me pliable and easy to work with so that You can readily work out Your plans for my life. Please reveal enough to me so that I can follow obediently and not fight. I am grateful for Your leading and that I get to walk with You. Thank you for encouraging me today. I love you, Lord!
