13 For you formed my inward parts;
    you knitted me together in my mother's womb.
14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
    my soul knows it very well.
Psalms 139:13-14
So many people wonder where God is and if He truly cares for them.  The answer is YES!  He does have a plan for you and he does care.  
The sad thing is that so many of us chase after everything and everyone in order to find that will...but in all reality the place where we have to look in order to find God's plan and will for us is in HIS WORD! 
God knows you.  He know everything about you, every thought, every movement...the NSA has NOTHING on God.   He knew you before you were even formed inside your momma.  And his plan for you is not to be rich, and his plan for you is not to have a massive house or a sweet ride.  The goal is simple, yet really complex for us as humans to wrap our minds around.
Look at this:
And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit. 2 Cor. 3:18
 God's plan is to transform you...and we have to look at this as something MUCH bigger than, you or me becoming the next BIG CEO or  whatever is in our mind.  We have to look at this through the spy glasses of eternity. What is God wanting to transform us into and what will we look like in 10,000 years?

The transformation that God is planning for you is to  look just like JESUS!

That's right.  He wants us to be transformed into the image of HIS SON Jesus!

I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.  - Romans 12:1-2

Why is this important?  Because if God looks at us and sees US...we are in trouble.  we are sinful...and deserve death as a result of that sin (Romans 6:23).  The wonderful thing is that God sees who we are IN.

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.  Gal 2:20
 So being in Christ we reap the benefits of that...and receive LIFE, rather than death!   How awesome is that!?

So once you understand that the goal of your life is to look like Jesus...everything else you 'DO' falls in line so much better...you don't have to look for writing in sky or declaration from the heavens...you just know what your goal is.  To look like Jesus.  So...

whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Col 3:17

You sleep better this way!
