October 14, 2016 BOLDLY PLAN
We all have some type of plans. Some of us plan to marry one day. Some of us plan to retire. We plan our projects at work and home. However, all plans we have on our own are subject to fail. When we make plans and leave God out, we are making a huge mistake. However, when we seek His advice and His plans, we will realize His plans are far greater than ours. Let's be bold in our planning by allowing God to guide us so what we do is right and according to His will.
Proverbs 19:20-21 "Get all the advice and instruction you can, so you will be wise the rest of your life. You can make many plans, but the LORD's purpose will prevail." (NLT)
Dear Lord, we thank You for Your plans. We thank You for our purpose. Without You we are nothing. Help us to come to You before following through with any of our plans. We know Your purpose will always prevail and are so grateful for all Your perfect plans. Help us to boldly plan doing Your will and not our own. In Jesus' name. Amen.
We should want to plan according to God's will and not our own.
God wants us to follow through doing His plans for us because anyone else's plans are just useless plans.
If we focus more on God, it will become evident what His plans are for us.
Leaving God out of our plans will definitely get us off course.
Boldly planning our lives requires we keep God first in our plans.
Jeremiah 29:11 "'For I know the plans I have for you,' says the LORD. 'They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.'" (NLT)
Focus: God's plans for us are far greater than any plans we can create on our own.
