“We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.”  Proverbs 16:9 NLT

I think we as humans have in our minds the way our life should turn out.  So even the best of us do what we are told and write your goals down, and if we’re really good we commence to construct our plan to achieve them.  The funny thing is even though we make our plans, God is the one who determines if we’ll make it to our goal at all.

Sometimes I think He looks at me and laughes as I plan to take on this cold world.  As I sit and prepare my mind and work ethic for promotion to do this and that, He says to himself, “If only he knew,… that’s not where I want to take him…I have something so much better.”

Even as I write this I get chills, because as great as I think my plans may be, His plans are so much better.  We can’t even imagine how great.

Let me encourage you, yes to plan, but include God in on it with prayer, asking him earnestly if the direction you’re headed is where he wants you to go.  And when He answers don’t be surprised when He blows your mind.
