Different Plan

Have you ever asked God for something? What if He has a different plan for you?

 "... Now a man crippled from birth was being carried to the temple gate called Beautiful, where he was put every day to beg from those going into the temple courts. When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money. Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, “Look at us! ...Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man’s feet and ankles became strong. He jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God." Acts 3:1-8 NIV

God spoke to me through this Scripture, reminding me that  though I may have an idea about what I want or think I need, He may have a different plan- just like the crippled man. He thought he needed money, but God had abundantly more prepared for him.  Dwell on this :)
