God gives us the freedom and responsibility to make plans. And yet, God relates the decisions we make to our future. However, this is not a reason to be passive or fatalistic, but rather it is an encouragement that you can rest assured that God is in ultimate control of your life. You need not be frozen in a state of indecision. You can trust that God will work out everything for the good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28). Simply put, I am not the boss of me! I’ve learned to put GOD in charge of my work so that whatever I plan becomes grafted into the fabric of His plan, purpose, and promise for my life (Proverbs16:3).
Pray with me:
Lord God, thank you that you are the sovereign Lord and that you control the events of history. Forgive me, Lord, for the times when I have perhaps known I am on the wrong path but have tried to manipulate my way. Help me always to stay in line with your plans, will, and purpose. May all my plans be your plans, and may these plans succeed and bring you glory and honor. In Jesus’ name, amen and amen!
