Integrity Moments - Jan. 2, 2013


Fresh Plans

It’s hard to know whether or not the plans I develop for the New Year are from me or from God. I’m a very optimistic person so I have a tendency for my plans to seem unrealistic. Yet, if I’m carrying out God’s purpose couldn’t He provide all that’s required?

Although I don’t have all the answers, what has helped, has been to make sure I commit my plans to the Lord for his guidance. If I develop plans without involving God, they’re usually not very fruitful.

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

If you desire your plans to succeed, prayerfully submit your entire planning process to God. Commit it all to Him, then listen and observe closely what He requires.
