We all have desires. We all envision how we want our life to go. And we are all guilty of thinking we know the best way to achieve it. Often, we try to come to our own rescue by formulating plans, mentally putting pieces of this puzzle together, thinking, if this happens, then I’ll do this. And if that happens, then this can be done. Even though we may have prayed over the matter, maybe quite sincerely, that doesn’t mean we have invited God into the issue. It doesn’t mean we have actually asked for His input, released it into His hands, or asked for His perfect will.
Leaving God out of the process means we have to have all the answers. It means we need to know the beginning from the end and all the future consequences and ripples in our lives that those decisions cause. It means we have to have perfect knowledge of everything about them now, and what’s to come – and, I am sorry, not sorry, to say, none of us are that smart. No, not one. That type of omniscient power can only be of God. So, why do we fight so much to have it our own way?
Getting your way all the time is not all it’s cracked up to be. With it comes more responsibility than we are equipped to handle. So, today I urge you to release your plans, days, and life to God and pray for Him to plan it according to His perfect and unfailing will.
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” Jeremiah 29:11
