We prefer to trust the system of the world over the guidance of the creator but let us ask ourselves this question: why should we put our trust into the world?
Does the world guarantee us safety from poverty, illness, injury and death? Does the world promise us stable finances and a successful future?
In the beginning, God created this world to be a perfect place where there was no suffering, death and illness. Under the guidance of God, the world was made secure. However, man brought sin into the world by his actions and thus making the world into what it is today. The world has become what it is today from the imperfections of man.
God provided a perfect world for us before we decided to do things our own way. God was the master maker who provided a world free from all poverty, death and illness until we brought it in from the choice of our free will.
If we understand that God's ways are filled with perfection while the world's ways are filled imperfection, why do we decide to follow the world's security? If we are the cause of the world's imperfections, why would we put the trust of our hopes, dreams and securities into our own knowledge?
Under the world's power, anything given can easily be taken away and once it is taken away, we are left with nothing. Now anything taken from God will never leave you with nothing because regardless what is taken, you will still always have what you truly need.
God knows everything we need in our lives. He knows us better than ourselves. Everything given to you is given to you for a reason. From the face you wear, to the talents you possess, from your body type, to your colored race. Everything you are is the exact way he wants you to be.
God is the master designer of everything. He placed the earth, the moon, and the sun exactly where they are in order for life to happen. Everything is the way it is because it is required for life to take place.
God is made up of everything good and pure so every pure, happy and constructive thought going through your mind comes from him. Your excitements, dreams, ambitions and ideas were all placed in your mind by God. God has a master plan for every person born into the world and he has already given him and her everything he or she needs to accomplish it.
If we place our full trust in his plan, he will provide us the fullness of his blessings. What does it mean to place our full trust in his plan? It means we should not have any back up plans or worldly security to fall back on. By having back up plans we are preparing for the potential failure of God's plan. We doubt the creator of the universe at bringing his promises to reality. We are preparing to fall back on what we know will for sure secure our futures: our back up plan. In other words, we aren't one hundred percent certain the creator of the universe will provide everything we need to accomplish what he promised us but we are one hundred percent certain our back up plan (which is the imperfect world's plan) will save us from complete disaster should our plan set by God fail.
An imperfect world cannot promise us perfect security so why do we put our trust in it? Is it because we can see our future with our eyes and predict it with our minds? Why should we trust in our eyes and mind? Can our eyes and mind promise us security? Are our eyes and mind powerful enough judges for our entire futures and lives?! For a sales job, investing all of our hard earned money into products that have been selling very well lately seems like a great investment. Normally it would be but who's to say the market of your products won't suddenly crash? How would we know? You're right, no one would know, that's simply the risk of doing business.
The truth is, no one knows for sure if their plans will work out. Everything we do is a risk and a guess. Any plan that seems like a great idea at the time can easily run the other direction fast. None of us can be one hundred percent certain that their plans will work out the way we want them to.
None of us know the perfect plans for our lives. Using the best knowledge we have, we pursue the plan that seems like the best course of action. No matter how educated we become, nothing we do will ever promise us stable security. Everything action we take is a risk.
This is why we should give our plans to God. God knows everything, he knows what works and what doesn't and he knows when something will work and when something won't. God's timing is perfect and everything he does is exactly what needs to be done. If God can adjust everything in the universe just perfectly so life can happen, do we not believe he will take care of our futures?
Forget everything you think you know and give it to God because he knows everything better than you do already! Do you want something done perfectly? Give it to him and He'll show you exactly what you need to do and when you need to it! Would you rather live your life with risks and guesses or give your life over to someone who promises to carry out perfectly, who has proven to carry out things perfectly! The world has proven many times to fail us but God has proven many times to provide for us through his word and the word of thousands of testimonies.
Imagine how perfect our plans would be if we gave them to God one hundred percent! Imagine the possibilities if we had complete faith in his ability to provide! Imagine how happy we would be if we relaxed and had faith in His ability to carry out our plans exactly when they needed to be carried out! No one knows how to succeed in our ambitions better than he does so we should give to him! Stop relying on an unpredictable world and start believing in the creator of the universe! Spend less time stressing over what might work on your plans and start filling your mind with God's wisdom and understanding on how everything truly works. The world fills your mind with doubt and insecurity but God fills you with hope and confidence which is a huge part of what you need to achieve your success! Under his guidance, there is no way you will fail! So for once invest your time, money and life into something that is sure to work! Before you doubt his power, remind yourself how small your plans are compared to how big the almighty God truly is!
