Proverbs 19:21 Many are the plans in a person's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails.
Are you a type of a Christian that waits on what’s gonna happen in your life, like you are just floating in the water that you will just wait that you’ll gonna end up to the shore? What if there’s a big waves that coming to you, or a shark that is coming after you? Are you gonna wait and let the shark eat you or let the wave hit you. As Christians, we should have a plan, a goal, just like in a business, there’s a goal, a mission vision statement in order to become a successful. Success is not an accident, it should be worked out it should be planned and should have a focus.
Know that it is God’s plan for you and Not just your own plan
“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.” (Jeremiah 29:11) When you plan something in your life, you must consider if that certain plan is the will of God. If those plans can destroy you or can harm you then, the plan you have is not from God. God has a plan for you, you should know what it is, you have to know and seek what God wants you to be.
Don’t just wait to what will happen to your life. If you have a plan that you wanted; to build a business, or plan to become a doctor, or whatever plans you have, do it, take actions, and don’t just wait. “What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.” (James 2:14-17) You want to build a business, invest; you wanted to become a doctor, go to medical school, and study hard. Work for your plans in order to succeed.
Entrust your Plan to God
“Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life.” (Psalm 143:8) Don’t just know the plan that God has for your, take action to your plan, and put all of your trust to God; don’t rely on your own. “In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.” (Proverbs 16:9) Let God direct you to the plan He has for you, for He knows what is best for you, the plan that you have right now, may not be the plan He intended for you, you should seek to God, talk to Him in prayer, once God tells you the plans He has for you, take it into action, work for it and trust everything in Him, because God is all knowing God. He knows and helps you for your plans to be successful; God's will always prevail, no matter the size of plans you have. Many times you have planned things on your own but God tells us to acknowledge him all our plans and he will direct our paths.
