I was reading online and saw these exact six words: His will. His way. My faith. My mind kept coming back to this phrase again, and again, and again.

It’s easy to forget whose hands our plans are in. We look everywhere for answers, but fail to look to the one who already has our plans figured out.

God knows what the future holds. His will and his way are already decided. It’s the strength of our faith that is one of the most important parts of the equation. Without trust and hope in God’s will, then how can we allow God to work through our lives?

Jeremiah 29:11 says, “’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.’”

Verses like the one above make me want to trust God more and more with the plans he has for me. His plans are always to prosper us and it says so right in Jeremiah 29:11. These types of verses make my anxiety go down, and my faith and trust in the future go up.

Would it be easier to trust God’s will for your life if he gave you hints along the way? Or if you could sit down and have an actual conversation with God, what would you want to know about the days to come? I always think about these types of questions or scenarios when it comes to the future.

The thing is, God already gives us hints throughout the Bible and within our day-to-day lives. Do you listen for his still, small voice? You can actually hear God’s voice if you listen for it! There are too many times when God tries to give us hints on where to go next, but we’re too busy or worrisome to hear him.

I know it can be hard to have faith not knowing where God’s taking you yet, but God will help you through it! I encourage you to journal all your feelings down in a prayer journal, whether they’re feelings of excitement, discomfort, or even frustration. Although God already knows what’s on your heart, he’ll give you peace and guidance if you just talk to him!

So, remember these six words: His will. His way. My faith. Repeat this phrase in your head when you’re having those repeated feelings of anxiety or fear.

As the Bible tells us, there is power in the name of Jesus! Call out to him instead of letting pride keep you from surrendering control. It’s always going to be his will and his way. Give him your faith and watch his perfect plan unfold!
