We can plan in our hearts and minds, but our plans are meaningless until God intervenes and directs our next steps. It is God that can truly realize the full potential of a plan. As we plan, we need to include God. We can include Him by reading the Bible and learning about Him. We can also include God through prayer - talking with and listening to God. We should rely on God in our planning process and we should rely on God in implementing our plans and taking the next steps. When God is part of the plans and the next steps, we will be amazed by His work in our lives!
When it is time to plan and take the next steps, be sure to ask God, "What is the plan?"
Thank You for loving me and for being willing to direct my plans and next steps. Help me to follow Your will in all that I do. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
