God does laugh at our plans at times. He is truly the one in control, His plans prevail. We can make our plans, but He determines our steps ~ (Proverbs 16:9). The closer I get to God, the more my plans fall in line with His. The Word says to delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart ~ (Psalm 37:4) .
That said, it’s time for us to be deliberate about our days. Be deliberate in your relationship with Christ. Be deliberate in doing the things you say. I can understand the challenge in that because things do pop up. However, I have realized for myself that the more deliberate I am, the more I stay on track. Prepare your days as best you can and leave the rest up to God. Your desires change the closer you get to God. God loves you and the closer you get to Him, the more you see that. So let’s be deliberate.
The enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy. At what point do we take this seriously? The devil is real. The news feeds are full of hate crimes, crimes of passion, disregard for human life as well as mental illness run rampant just to name a few. Our only hope is in Jesus.
