I Love It When A Plan Comes Together
Posted: Tuesday, May 26
2 Samuel 9:1-11:27
Verse of the day:
Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed. (Proverbs 16:3)
I love it when a plan comes together. It’s a line popularized by the The A-Team’s cigar chomping leader Colonel John “Hannibal” Smith, and something if I’m honest I like to say myself. It’s refreshing when all of the intricate details align just right and the end goal is successfully accomplished. Whether it’s purchasing a new home, deciding on whether or not to move on a new job, how to raise children, where to have lunch, or making sure everyone gets to school on time - where there’s action there’s planning.
The promise found in today’s Proverb is satisfyingly reassuring. Do things God’s way and you’ll always be a winner. It sounds to good to be true, and we’re told that if it sounds to good to be true it usually is. What makes this different is that it’s a promise that’s been proven over and over again to be faithful and true. The Bible touches on every aspect of our lives - leadership, decision making, finances, relationships, emotions, and so much more! The Bible makes it clear what God’s way of doing things looks like and guarantees us with 100% loyalty that if we commit our actions to those truths, we will succeed.
The reasons we fail are because we do things according to our wisdom or lack there of. Commit to listening to God’s voice, learning what the Bible says on anything and everything, and you’ll be successful in everything you do! God has unlimited and unparalleled wisdom, doing things His way will absolutely never lead you down the wrong path. It’s a simple reminder with a very generic “this is how you do that,” but you’re already taking the steps to learn God’s way even better! Keep reading these devotionals, stay in the word, and ask God for the wisdom He generously extends to us!
