There is always a challenge, as a Christian, when we sincerely make plans. Sometimes we seek a particular job or occupation and we don't get it. Sometimes we seek to live a certain standard of life and we don't seem to accomplish it. Sometimes, as missionaries we seek to go certain places only to find our way blocked by God.
The reality is that Christians should always realize God guides our steps for His good. However, sometimes we feel defeated when life seems to throw its curve balls.
Recently, I left my last job seeking to preach again. Where will I go? How will God use me? Why does He say "No" under certain circumstances? Will some try to treat me as Joseph's brothers did (Genesis 50:20)?
The reality is I am a servant of the Most High God. He will guide His children's paths.
