“I know God got a plan for me but I don’t know what it is…I’m just out here tryna handle my biz…”
I’ve become a fan of New Orleans rapper Dee-1 over the past year or so. I don’t remember how I found out about him, but he has a lot of positive messages in his music and this Inspirational Jam is one that really stands out for me.
“I Know God” is a single on Dee-1’s latest album, God and Girls, and it’s a message that I rock with heavy. On the song, he rhymes about his life and career. Though he’s not completely clear on where his life path is going, he’s content in following and doing what he’s been called to do, because he believes that God has it all under control. It’s Scripture—Jeremiah 29:11 says “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
I know that not everyone is religious or even spiritual, but I believe that God has a plan for all of our lives, even if we don’t completely see it yet. Even now though, I see how certain circumstances, wins and losses, rejections, and hurt have all led me to where I am now. Looking back, I’m grateful for the lessons I’ve learned and growth I’ve experienced in those moments. It’s all a part of a divine plan orchestrated by Someone much greater than me.
