The Plan Maker

It is almost summertime. I don’t know about you, but we can’t help but be excited about all the things we’re going to do as the weather gets warm and vacation season begins. There are so many opportunities to be apart of, places to go, people to reach and plans to be made!

Sometimes though, we can get so caught up in our plan making that we forget to include the ultimate Plan Maker. In Proverbs 16:9 it says, “In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.” God is the One who decides the final outcome. When we plan our lives around Him and His will, things will turn out better for us because ultimately He is the One who orchestrates our lives. When we learn to recognize that His way is the best way (and follow it), we will prosper. 

So lets make it a point this summer to stop and ask God what His plans are for us. What would He like us to do? How can we follow Him? Where would He like us to go and do? How can we best follow Him?
