Yes, God does have a plan for every one of us—and the reason is because He loves us, and wants us to have what is best for us.
You see, if He didn’t care for us, then He wouldn’t care what we did with our lives.
If we wrecked our lives or wasted them, it wouldn’t make any difference to Him—if He didn’t care. But He does care what happens to us! He doesn’t want us to drift through life without any meaning or purpose, nor does He want us to throw our lives away or destroy them. He loves us, and He knows all about us; Jesus said, “Even the very hairs of your head are all numbered” by God (Matthew 10:30).
Never forget: God is far greater than we are. No, we can’t imagine trying to keep track of every person on earth—but God can do it because He is greater than we are. The Bible says, “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts” (Isaiah 55:9).
How do I know God loves us and cares about us? I know it because He sent His only Son into the world to save us and bring us back to Himself. Sin has separated us from God—but on the cross all our sins were placed on Christ, and He took the penalty we deserve. Yes, God loves us—and He loves you. Respond to His love today by giving your life to Christ. Then ask Him to show you His plan for your life, and He will.
