Do you believe that God has a plan for you?
And he said to them, You are of the earth; I am from heaven: you are of this world; I am not of this world.
For this reason I said to you that death will overtake you in your sins: for if you have not faith that I am he, death will come to you while you are in your sins.
Then they said to him, Who are you? Jesus said, What I said to you from the first.
I have much to say about you and against you: but he who sent me is true and what he has said to me I say to the world.
They did not see that his words were about the Father.
So Jesus said, When the Son of man has been lifted up by you, then it will be clear to you who I am, and that I do nothing of myself, but say as the Father gave me teaching.
He who sent me is with me; he has not gone from me, because at all times I do the things which are pleasing to him.
When he said this a number came to have faith in him. (John 8.23-30 Bible in Basic English (BBE))
Again and again, we see in the New Testament there is a time and place for all to happen. There are many references to Jesus not being arrested because the time had not yet come. Why would it not be the same in our lives? If you believe that God has a plan for you, it makes sense to think that while you want something to happen, it may not be time yet. We can follow Jesus' example of continuing forth, being wise in our thoughts and actions. With that, you will most likely find peace. The peace of God will descend on you. To struggle and worry is to fight against God to make your will come true while ignoring God's will.
God of peace and love, I thank you today for the opportunities you give me. I want to change and grow, so your peace fills my life. I am not there yet, but I feel the tug of your love in more profound and fulfilling ways every day. Your pull is joy-filled and makes my life happier. I appreciate your passion for all of humanity. Amen.
