At one of our Sunday meetings, we looked at the story of Jesus and the woman at the well from the book of John 4. The bible doesn’t tell us her name, but in this story we see that God looks at everyone through the eyes of compassion, no matter where they are in their life. He is always trying to get us on track with God’s plan for us. In this current time, that plan starts with being born-again (John 3:3) and then trusting in Jesus to lead us in this life, till we meet him face to face in the life after.
One of my favourite bible passages is Jeremiah 29:11, which says, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope” (NIV Bible). That means that as a Christian, regardless of my current situation or circumstance, God’s plans for my life are always intact.
I am always excited when I remember that “God has a good plan for us”. Some of the thoughts that flashed through my mind a while ago are: “How can God possibly have a plan for me, or be the least concerned about my life? – there are billions of humans on the earth that require his attention”. Another thought is, “surely God has more important things to do than to focus on me and the mundane things in my life”. However, the truth of the matter is that the bible says, he does have a specific plan for every single one of us.
This is an extract from our recent study about God’s plan for every human being:
 God has a good plan for you (Jeremiah 1:5, Jeremiah 29:11)
 He has provided everything that you need to fulfil your earthly and spiritual plans (2 Peter 1:3)
 Although God has a good plan for everyone that is born, not everyone finds that plan. The first step or requirement for fulfilling or starting God’s plan (irrespective of age) is to become a believer/born-again (John 3:3)
