Each Step

I am always disappointed when events don’t unfold as I envisioned. I don’t know why I’m surprised when my well laid plans fail, God never intended us to scheme our lives into perfection.

It seems he wants us to walk this way. He promises “Whether you turn to the right or the left, this is the way, walk in it.” Isaiah 30:21

He never promises we will be given the whole plan, in fact He says “I know the plans I have for you…” Jeremiah 29:11 I looked in the second part of that chapter, unfortunately I never found anything like ‘when I tell you about those plans,’ or ‘I will take counsel on your thoughts.’ Actually, I am thankful about that second part. Some of my ideas retrospectively stink.

Even when we make decisions, we are supposed to clarify, “If the Lord wills..” James 4:13-17

Just enough light for your feet–not the whole trail. I think he does that so you keep your eyes on that light. Why do you think he does it?
