Don’t Jump Ahead

January 12

How many times have you jumped ahead on something and gotten in trouble? We’ve all done it at one time or another. I’m a planner, so I’m planning things months ahead; yet, I’ve learned over the years that planning is okay but ultimately the Lord directs my steps. The more I trust Him and seek His wisdom and direction, the more assured I find myself being at the right place at the right time. Proverbs 16:9, NASB, says: “The mind of man plans his way, But the LORD directs [establishes] his steps.” Maybe you’re needing direction and guidance for something particular today or this week. Do what you need to do but do it trusting the Lord, His favor and not in your intelligence or careful planning. Commit the matter to the Lord from an inward position of rest in Him, without worry, anxiety or fretting about it. Know that in everything He loves you and wants to bless you abundantly. Be ready to enjoy His abundant provision of blessings and His favor operating in your life.
