Our life plan does not always go according to what we plan in life. You may think that they way you plan your life will go accordingly to the way what you plan but it’s not your plan. Some people say the want to get married by the age of twenty-five and have kids and other stuff but what you plan is not Gods plan. I understand that twenty-five is the average age for someone to get married but eventually God will take you on a detour.
Life is a detour. Detours are like a test not a test that you will take in school but in Biblical terms it means an adverse circumstance either created or allowed by God in order to develop us in preparation for purpose for us. When we read the story of Joseph; he had dreams so he knew what was coming but did not understand clearly. His brothers sold him to slavery. Moving forward in the story… Pharaoh’s wife lied to her husband saying that Joseph slept with her so he was thrown in jail. (Genesis 39)
This was Joseph’s detour before he became second in command of Egypt. God was working on Joseph this was his test from God. Sometimes we do not understand why God takes us through situations that we do not want to be in. In order for God to give you that; you must go through this. You can’t get this without experiencing that.
Detours can allow some negativity to interfere. We can get mad at God but detours are to made to draw us closer to God. Notice how when people break down and cry we run to God for help. God does not want us worry about our destiny but instead he wants us to learn and experience.
“God cares more about the development of the dreamer; than the realization of the dream.”
Dr. Tony Evans
Your relationship with God is more important than making it to your destiny. Your job is to be prepared when God takes you out of your detour. God does not want you to be worried about arriving to your destiny. If you not prepared then God will keep you in your detour. He wants us to develop from it. Detours takes you on a road that you do not expect to be on.
Let God guide you on your detour. If your destiny is about you; you are not ready to arrive.
