Proverbs 16:9 “In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.”
We have all been there, we have everything planned out perfectly and then… our entire plan is derailed, changes course, or blows up in our face.
Even the most well thought out and perfect plans in life will be derailed if they are not part of God’s plan for your life. We can continually fight against God and His plan for our lives, but eventually He brings us to our knees iif we are out of His will. Sometimes He goes to drastic measures to get our attention.
We can be stubborn like Johna or compliant like Mary, Jesus mother, either way God is drawing us to him for a better life. So, while you are making your plans, pray. Pray you hear God’s voice. Pray for decernment. Pray for wisdom. Pray for guidance. Pray for healing. Wherever you are or what ever yu are dealing with God is guiding your steps; trust Him.
Father, thank your for guiding my steps in good and bad times. Father, I know that I make plans for my life that do not always line up with Your steps for me. I try to force You to clear a path because it is what I want for my life. Fathe help me to trust You path because Your path is perfect. Lord, open my ears to hear Your voice as it calls me in the right direction. Lord, when my anxiety goes up or my plans fall apart, call to me and open my ears to hear You in the midst of my confusion. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
