Pr 19:21 Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the LORD’S purpose that prevails.


Each one of us is full of plans.  We have plans for this day and for days to come.  Some of our plans are put on us by others.  There is nothing wrong with plans as long as we are flexible.  God created each one of us for His purpose.  The major purpose is fellowship with Him.  He also has work for us to do in His name and through His power.  This work is to spread His love and word to the ends of the earth and make preparations for the coming of His Son, Jesus for His bride, us, the church of believers.  God’s purpose is that not one person will be left out.  Our job is to let each one know through our words and actions.  We get into problems when our plans rub against God’s purpose for us.  Each of us has a different job in preparing for His Kingdom on earth.  What He calls you to do is different than what He calls me to do yet each of us serves the same purpose/goal.  We must each listen to Him through scripture and through the gentle voice of His Holy Spirit. Let us learn to submit all our plans and all our ways and all our thoughts and actions to God for confirmation or correction.  It continually amazes me that God would choose to work through sinful people like me.  What an awesome God we serve.
