Fresh Hope – Day 99

Today we continue where we left off yesterday, with five more questions that are frequently asked when wanting to know God’s purpose and plan for our lives…

6) Does my age matter? YES… but only to you.

Your age is irrelevant to God. The biggest clue that your assignment isn’t over, is that you are still alive.

7) Can I stop the plan?

Yes! You can stop the plan for YOU by your stubbornness and disobedience, but you can’t stop God’s ultimate plans.

You can also delay the plan by your unwillingness to say yes, but after God has waited for you, He will then find someone else who will fulfil what you refused to.

8) When will it start?

It has… You just didn’t know it!

It’s a bit like when your parents bought you that surprise present for Christmas that you’d been asking for. You thought that they’d forgotten, but in fact, they’d already got it. They had just kept it hidden from you until the right day came.

Psalm 139:16 ‘Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.’

9) Do I just sit back?

No… His plan is a partnership.

Your part is to start serving Him in any way that you can, in any area that you can.

What often looks like your plan, is actually HIS plan flowing through your desires.

Psalm 37:4 ‘Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.’

10) What if I’m unable to do what I’m asked?

God will never ask ‘CAN you?’, He will always ask ‘WILL you?’

He already knows what you can and can’t do.


Remember, God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called.

The moment you connect to God, you connect also to His higher purpose for you; it’s woven into the very DNA of your life.


Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
