Following God's Plan No Matter What
We are entering a new year and many of us are making goals and commitments to see certain things accomplished in our lives. Those might be physical, emotional, or spiritual in nature, but have you ever made a commitment to follow what you thought was God's plan for your life only to find, in the midst of pursuing it, a series of obstacles and events seemed to take you off course? It seemed like you were getting further away from what you thought God was wanting for your life to do. I am sure many of us have been at that place in our lives multiple times, but the question remains: Does our commitment to God change when things no longer seem to pursue what we think is God's plan? God gives us an example of this in the life of Gideon.
