What Are You Planning Today?

Divider

Yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring.

James 4:14


Do you already have your day planned out? A lot of us are creatures of habit, and our work weeks typically have the same routines to keep us on task. Many of us have work days filled with meetings, discussions, and strategies about getting things done. Yet how many times have we been thrown off schedule by something we thought was minor that turned into a major disruption?

We can get immersed in the predictability of life until reality snaps the truth back at us: We are not in control. As much as we plan to drive from point A to point B, we can’t control whether someone decides to drive drunk or run a red light. However many meetings and schedules we maintain at work, we can’t control layoffs or forced retirements. As much as we plan for our marriage and families, we can’t control their actions or words.

Whatever we are going to do today, it would be in our best interest to begin with, “Lord if it is Your will, I will.” This prayer doesn’t guarantee that everything will play out as we planned. However, it does establish our hearts with peace that God’s got it. He has our lives and the lives of our loved ones in His great hand. Nothing in our day will ever surprise the Lord.

As we are planning our day, week, month, or year, we can keep in mind that ultimately God’s will is what matters most. Even when things don’t turn out like we planned, He’s still in control and we don’t have to panic. Our hearts can remain steadfast that God will take care of us as we continue to trust in Him.

Prayer

Dear Lord, I don’t know what today is going to bring, but I trust You to lead me in the right direction for Your will and purpose. In Jesus’ name, amen.

In His Service,
