God indeed has a plan for each of us. He has determined, in his wisdom and love, the best way for us to get to our goal, which is full union with him. But like Israel of old, we all wander from the path, convinced that we are brighter than the Lord of the universe, or perhaps just enamored of asserting our own freedom. But God never gives up on us; rather, he re-shuffles the deck, recalculates and sets a new course for us. Watch this process, by the way, as the scriptural narrative unfolds. And watch it happening, again and again, in your own life: What looks like a complete dead-end turns into a way forward; the wrong path turns, strangely, into the right path.
