Adam Clarke said that, "The old proverb about having too many irons in the fire is an abominable old lie. Have all in, shovel, tongs, and poker." Many of us probably have more than one iron in the fire. Even though we make lots of plans, are they the right plans and when God calls are we all in?
God makes plans for our lives. He has a direction or path for us, but it is up to each of us to follow His way. We need to make sure our plans line up with His plans before we put our irons in the fire. When we listen to and follow God's plans, He will help us prosper and protect us from evil. We can have hope in His plans!
We also need to be prepared when we hear God's call. When we hear His call and His plans, we need to be ready to put all of our irons in the fire. We need to be all in for God! When we heed His call and follow His plans, we can find hope and protection in God!
Make sure you hear God's plans when you put your irons in the fire!
Thank You for the plans that You have for my life. Help me to hear and follow these plans as You protect and guide me. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
