Are Your Plans, God’s Plans





Psalm 127: 1 – “Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.”


Have you ever made plans for something and nothing happened? Or, have you desperately wanted your life to go in one direction, and it went down a totally different path? I have, many times. It’s tough when you try to do your best and be good to people, but when things keep getting worse, you’re left to wonder why even try.

Looking back on life always brings wisdom. We learn from our mistakes. Or, at least we should. We can also learn from others. I’ll admit, my 20’s and 30’s were reckless, selfish and downright rebellious.

I’ve learned one thing from those years. When you try and make your own plans, and leave God out, the results are never good. Since I started trusting God with my life, my plans, I’m enjoying life. You see, once you relinquish all the burden of planning this or that, and you let God guide you, life gets easier.

What about you? Are you making plans for tomorrow; next month; next year? Does it include God?

God’s ways are so much higher than ours; His thoughts and plans, so much better than anything we could come up with. Give your burdens to God today. He can lighten your load and take you on some amazing journeys.

I trust God with planning my life. After all, He’s already prepared my home in heaven.
