A plan in the heart of a man is like deep water,
But a man of understanding draws it out.
Proverbs 20:5 NASB
Having a plan is a good thing. It provides a path, a focus. It is deep water because many people don’t really set plans. There are many people who bounce around life with some “ideas,” but never really aspire to anything better.
But even the best of plans are meaningless if they are not acted upon. A man of understanding can “draw” his plan out of the water and actually work it to see results. You could look back on their life and see that they are not at the same place they were 5-10 years ago.
For the Christian, any plan that is developed in the heart and then acted upon needs to come from the Father. It’s not enough to read about and listen to leadership gurus. The man or woman of God needs to stay close to God and follow His ways.
Success for the Christian is not measured in what we have obtained here in this world. Success for the Believer is based on following God’s will.
The Believer in Christ needs to live the plan that God has placed in their heart. Drawing that out, learning the will of God for your life is necessary! God has a plan for your life. Take time to know and seek Him out. His plans have eternal rewards!
Lord, thank You that You are active in our lives. Thank You that You have a plan for us that is so much better than we can possibly imagine. Help us to walk in that plan.
