Today’s scripture selection: Proverbs 16
Key verse: Proverbs 16:3
There are a few “free spirits” among us – you know, the ones who fly by the seat of their pants and can’t ever be pegged down to exactly what they are going to do or when they are going to do it.
But most of us have to plan.
We may not be organizational or efficiency experts and our best laid plans may still go awry. But we take a shot at it – and usually things work out o.k.
Wouldn’t it be great if what we planned also coincided perfectly with the universe? Wouldn’t it be exciting to feel that each step we took – in our personal, family, and work lives – just “fit” with some larger plan of the cosmos?
Turns out, we can have exactly that. Proverbs tells us how:
“Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.”
Isn’t that great?
If we are just humble and willing enough to pray that what we do is according to God’s will, we are promised that even though we aren’t perfect, things will unfold just as they should.
It may not seem so at the time; we may wonder what God is thinking – but in the end – it will all make perfect sense.
It’s the part of the Lord’s Prayer that goes like this:
“Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”
It’s aligning our plans, big and small, with the plans of the Creator of the universe.
How could anything go wrong when we do that?
Prayer: Lord, align my plans with yours, every day. AMEN.
