Planning with God
1st and foremost God has plans for your life, I didn’t say ‘a plan’ but plans. It’s more than you think or can imagine. He has plans to accomplish various things and purposes and needs you on board. It’s not planning with God because you are listening to him and just following instructions. It’s bigger than that it’s about being involved in the planning to production phrases with everything you are.
Planning is the process of thinking about the activities required to achieve the desired goal. It is the first and foremost activity to achieve desired results. It involves the creation and maintenance of a plan, such as psychological aspects that require conceptual skills.
planning is a fundamental property of intelligent behavior
Being independent does affect us from planning with God because we may want to manage every detail in our life. The struggle of letting go of pain, shame, and failures affect us from the benefits of planning with God.
Thinking God is not responding when we want and how we want also brings a sour taste to the mouth when you imagine planning with God.
But what about hearing God tell you to plan something you don’t feel is relevant, interesting, or beyond your skillset. Do you run away from him or run further away from him, hoping he will change his mind and tell someone else? Well no, he will still pull on your heartstrings so learn to posture yourself before him whenever you feel like being a runaway bride. Lol
God has daily plans, weekly plans, monthly plans, yearly plans, and generationally plans. God desires us to know and work on these daily plans to reach our expected end. While God is working out things behind the scenes he will always give us plans that we can contribute to on a daily basis.
Ask God about the vision he has given you
- ask for the plans for the vision
- ask what God wants to develop in you
- commit heart, mind, gifts, time, connections to God by writing them down and praying
- Listen out for his words and direction
- Be attentive to things thzt will come to your regarding the vison and development.
Always have God’s input in decisions and ideas that come your way.
The feeling of stopping and procrastinating will come but be reminded that the idea, vision is God’s and he is living through you to accomplish it. So get out of the way and face every ill-feeling in the face.
- Jer 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Isa 30:21 21 You will hear a voice behind you saying, “This is the way. Follow it, whether it turns to the right or to the left.” 22 Then you will dishonor your silver-plated idols and your gold-covered statues. You will throw them away like clothing ruined by stains. You will say to them, “Get out!”
Promises of going with God –
23 The Lord will give you rain for the seed that you plant in the ground, and the food that the ground provides will be rich and nourishing. When that day comes, your cattle will graze in large pastures.
