8 Encouraging Verses About God's Plan for Your Life

Aug 29, 2018 | by The Salvation Army

In a world of over seven billion people, it’s easy to feel small—to feel as if our day-to-day lives aren’t worth much, especially when we’re drowning in a sea of the mundane. Yet God has a purpose and a plan for each and every one of us. We all have unique gifts and talents. We all have unique perspectives, certain friend groups, and various workplaces. God uses this rich diversity to carry out his will, and his plans are always bigger, bolder, and better than anything we could ever imagine.

When you start to feel small, we hope these encouraging bible verses will remind you of God’s plan for your life. Although you may feel that your life is ordinary, in the hands of our maker the extraordinary is always possible.
