MONDAY, NOVEMBER 2

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. – Romans 8:28 (NIV)

God is orchestrating everything in your life according to HIS purpose. So if you’re searching for that feeling of comfort as you get ready to declare a major in school, or you’re looking for that affirmation that you’ve made the right choice to apply for that job, or to stay where you are, remember that because God is good. He works everything out for the good. God is not too busy to guide you in decision making, no matter how big or small. He is not tired of you asking Him questions and He doesn’t abandon you when you’re confused or uncertain. So when you find yourself stressing out because:

1. You have no idea what you’ve been “called to do”
2. You’re worried that you’ve made the wrong choice about college
3. You don’t know what you want to major in or study
4. You’re not sure if you should stay at your job, or leave and pursue the things you’re passionate about
5. You enjoy what you do and you’re grateful for where you are in life, but you wonder if there’s something more for you,

Remember that because God is good, He is not only going to guide you through these situations, but He is going to guide you toward where HE wants you to be! In other words, no matter how uncertain your life or situation may feel at times, there is absolutely no reason to let your mind become filled with stress to the point that you’re relying solely on your own mental ability to try and figure where you need to be. Spend time talking with the Lord daily. Cling to the relationships in your life that provide wisdom and encourage you with biblical truth. Don’t let yourself get so worked up over what kind of career you need to have, or if you’re single, what kind of godly man God is going to send into your life. Everything will work out according to His purpose, and you can find peace in knowing that as a follower of Christ, your purpose is to live a life in pursuit of God. Let HIS Word be your guide!
