Day 41: Man Plans and God Laughs

Day 41

Many are the plans in a person's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails. Proverbs 19:21.

Man Plans and God Laughs.

There is nothing wrong with preparing for life. There is nothing wrong with looking to the future and scheduling what you will be doing. There is nothing wrong with preparing for every single possibility that you may think could happen, but understand that the best laid plans of mice and men often go astray.

It is then when your plan has changed, when something occurred that may have come out of left field when you will find your true measure. Are you flexible? Will you let it stop you? Or will you be like water and find the low spot? Even if something has stepped in your way and it looks like a "stop" sign, will you continue on in a different way?

Man Plans and God Laughs.

Plan and prepare, but understand that you are not in control. Ultimately, you will either be allowed to do what you planned, or you will deal with a different idea.

Deal with it and laugh along with God.

Challenge: If you are dealing with a situation you were not expecting, pray, use it, don't fight it. Embrace it, pray, grow, and become better because of it.
