God’s plans for you will always be bigger than the plans you have for yourself. Don’t waste your life working on your plans. Focus instead on God’s plans. It’s a radical mind-shift to no longer pursue our dreams and goals. For those of us who have spent decades in pursuit of something, it seems unnatural to let it go.
Perhaps what you’ve been chasing is what God intends for you to do, in which case you can continue the pursuit but with a different motive for your desires. But often, God’s intention for us will differ from our dreams. Our dreams are tainted and influenced by what the world tells us we want. God’s dreams for us are not only bigger but more pure and meaningful. When we spend our lives in pursuit of His plans, our lives will be full of meaning and satisfaction.
