Plans and purposes:

"Many are the plans of a man's heart; but God's purpose will prevail (Pro. 19:21)."

God has a common purpose for everyone, which is to proclaim his goodness. But the plan to fulfil His purpose differs in everyone's lives. He will make some one to be a rich and make his heart to be a generous to help the poor and needy people. Through which His name will be glorified. He will keep someone in a pressurised situation, for he will praise His name even in that situation too. He will keep someone always in needy status, so that he have to always look at God and His hands to do miracle. Everything for His glory. Instead of seeing lack ness, look at the God who is able to Change the lack ness to fullness. He will not reveal His plan to anyone before the time. If we know the ups and downs, and the time when will it come, we might not seek God. Instead we will rely on our own strength.

For example, God have brought Israelites from the Egypt. The Egyptians have gave plenty of gold and silver to Israelites. God made their heart to be opened for that. But also He could have made their hearts to give them some amount of food also. And God is able to keep that food without decrease and without worms and stink. But If he would have done that, they would have forget Him and also they would have left God's plan for His purpose, and they would have went in their own plans to the purpose. And so God wants them to always look at His hands for their needs and miracles.

Like wise, if we know the blueprint of our life, we might not let the God to lead us. For we know where the ups and downs will come and how long it will exist. And so we might not wait for God's hand to lead and do miracle. We might rely on our own strength to fulfil His purpose, not in His plan but in our own plans. Our own plans will harm us. For God says, "my plans are not like your plans, and my deeds are not like your deeds, for just as the sky is higher than the earth, so my deeds are superior to your deeds and my plans superior to your plans (Isaiah 55:8,9)."

So whatever happens, don't get upset and grumble for God's leading. Everything for His glory to be revealed through you. The only thing you need to do is to just praise God and thank for His goodness and be in the will of God by mediating His words. His hand is not shorter, for He didn't do any miracles at your frustrated situation. "He has made everything beautiful in its season (Eccles. 3:11)." He is waiting for His time to do miracles. And also he will give you strength to pass through and over come the tough situation. So let God to work in your life, and wait at His presence for God to do in its season. When you are oppressed, mediate more of His words and His miraculous deeds. It will encourage you and to boost you to prolong. God bless you.
