Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.
Proverbs 19:21 ESV
I can wake up and have the best plans for the day. I can schedule myself and hit the ground running. But if I’m not aligned to God’s plan, it’s all for nothing!
You see His plans are what matters. His plans are what should be important!
Christians have problems when we want God’s will for our lives, then try to force it into our box. God doesn’t work like that!
He is active in our world and He has a plan for our life. The best kind of life you can imagine is when God is right in the middle of it.
So why don’t you ask Him what His plan is for you today? Why don’t you let Him know that you are willing to be interrupted and possibly inconvenienced from your plans because His plans matter more?
How awesome would it be if your plans aligned with His? What if you started your day with the prayer, “Lord, I have these plans, but I’m willing to set them aside to do whatever You desire me to do today.”
Then, keep your eyes open. Listen! Pay attention. Don’t let the little things pass you by. Be present and walk in the Spirit.
What could happen if you allowed yourself to let God work in and through you today?
Make your plans, but let Him break in if He wants. And if He does, realize God is using you to bring glory to His name.
Father, this is Your day. Let Your will be done.
