During the past week or so the Lord has been speaking to me about "PLANNING", or to be more specific, "My Lack of It"! This morning in my quiet time I did a quick search of the word "Plan" (Bible gateway) in an effort to know more of what God wants to show me. Here is a little of what I think that is:
*I do not have to be out evangelizing the world to be daily following God's plans for me. (Don't get me wrong, I think He intends for me to seize those opportunities) but today it may be simply be, making sure I have taken care of things in my home. Proverbs 15:21-23
*The Lord will establish my plans if I am seeking Him daily. In my flesh, I can devise all sorts of plans that seem "Good" to me. Proverbs 16:2-3
*I need to be diligent in what God has shown me to do.
Isaiah 32:8 says, "But the noble man devises noble plans; and by noble plans he stands."
Here are some of the definitions I found for noble:
1. Possessing outstanding qualities
2. possessing very high or excellent qualities or properties
What I asked myself is, "How can I devise noble plans?"
The answer is, I Can't but He Can!
I realized if I am seeking the Lord daily, His daily plans for me, listening to His instruction, I can have noble plans, because His ways are not my ways, see Isaiah 55:8-9
So today I am out to do some "Planning" God's way.
If you would like to know what God used to get me to hear what He has been trying to say to me, Go Here. This insightful post got me to thinking! Hope you all have a wonderful week! Blessings, Jackie
