The Master’s Plan

“In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps”

~ Proverbs 16:9 NIV

How many times have you formulated the “perfect” plan, ironed out all the details, and right when it was time to execute…

God puts a halt to it.

This used to frustrate me until I realized this blocking God was doing was to make way for His will and not mine.

You see brothers, just as fear and faith cannot co-exist; neither can your will and His will.

One has to take precedence.

As followers of Christ, we are promised that God has a greater plan in store for every time he halts our personal plans.

By faith and obedience, we need to give God’s plan full priority in our lives and always be willing to lay ours down for the sake of greater works to be accomplished through us.

Lets pray…

“Lord your are wonderful. You are the creator of the earth and all that is in it. Your knowledge and ways surpass our greatest understanding. Lord we honor your instructions and guidance in our lives today by laying ours down. We surrender every plan of our heart to the obedience of your will. Lord we accept your greater call on our lives and give your plans full permission to go forth. We love you Jesus. Amen.”
