Jeremiah 29:11 I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.
Bless couldn’t see anything as she entered the room. She put her hand out to feel what was in front of her; air. Should she go forward? Move left, Go right? She had agreed to this but suddenly Bless wasn’t sure anymore. “Don’t worry Bless, I’m here. I told you, I’ve got it all planned out. I’ll walk you through it.” Slowly but surely Daddy walked Bless through the Father-Daughter Blindfold Maze. Bless relaxed as she trusted Daddy to guide her to the finish line and to 1st place.
Sometimes we get lost in the minor details of life, but it’s such a relief to have someone who sees the whole picture guiding us to life’s end. God made us and He knows why certain things happen to us and how we can get out of peculiar situations. The problem arises when we don’t think God knows what He is doing or trust Him to bring us to our brilliant future. We often think we know better and do things on our own but then we hit a wall and need to be guided out of the maze. If you trust God you can walk through this life with your eyes closed.

Can you trust God’s plan for you today?
It’s strange to say but please remind me that You know what’s best for me and that I should trust you always. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
Proverbs 3:5&6 Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track.
Zzzzooooopppp!! Zzzzzzaaaaapppp!!!! Ppppfffffwwwwwhhhheeeewwww!!!! Jody grinned in pure delight as the remote controlled helicopter whizzed through the air. Up. Down. Left. Right. Loop-de-loop. This was pretty cool. Jody could make the helicopter do just about anything and the best part was Jody didn’t even have to be in the helicopter. Which was just was well; Jody wasn’t that small. With the remote control though Jody could stay safe on the ground and yet do amazing things in the air. Jody thought it was the best thing since sliced bread.
When you give your life to Christ and trust God to use the Holy Spirit to direct you, you sort of become like Jody’s helicopter. God can do great and might things with you on a daily basis if you just trust Him and listen to His voice. Nothing is too small for him to take an interest in and there is nothing so big that He cannot handle. Every step of the way God will be there to encourage you, guide you and set you straight if only you trust Him with your life.

It’s not easy letting go of control, but try trusting God today with everything and see what happens.
Take my hand, lead me throughout this day. You know more than I ever could and I trust you. I give you the big things and the little things. Let me live a God-directed life today. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
