My Daily Devotional

Are Your Plans God’s Plans

“Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.”
Proverbs 16:3

During our lives we all make big plans as to what we want to do in our profession, the kind of person we want to marry, the school we want to go to, the kind of house we want to build; the list goes on and on. So many of us make these plans with the expectations that if we work for them, they will come to fruition, and we will obtain from life everything we desire. So many of us leave out one big factor in making our plans, and that is that we leave out the will of God in our lives. God tells us in the above scripture that if we commit to the Lord whatever we do, our plans will succeed. There have been so many times in my life where I had big plans, and knew just how I was going to accomplish them, and could just see these plans becoming realities. I would spend much time plotting all the steps, but then due to some unforeseen circumstances many of these plans never came to fruition. It has only been during these past 30 years or so that I realized that one thing was usually missing in my big plans; and that was that God had not been included. I now know that if we are going to succeed in anything we do, we need to include God in our plans, and know that what we are doing is also his will for our lives. If we do this I believe He will let our plans succeed. It is so easy to let pride stand in the way, as we think that we have the answers to the problems in life. We think that we can do all things by ourselves, and that we are in control. Until we determine just how little control we have, and how much our plans depend on God’s will, we will wander aimlessly through life But there are no plans that we have that are impossible to accomplish if it is in God’s will and plans for us.
