"We may make a lot of plans, but the Lord will do what he has decided."
Unless you make this verse the cornerstone of your life you will build in vain. The way to make plans that will succeed is to first determine what God's will is in any matter and make plans that parallel His desires! Otherwise you will ultimately run into the firewall of God's will and stop dead in your tracks.
The story of the Tower of Babel is about how God blocked and frustrated men from going where He would not permit. That principle is still true today. Unless God gives a nod to your plans you will not accomplish them, especially if they are counter to His ultimate purpose in the world!
It is the age old story about the free will of men and the Sovereignty of God! Men do have free will but God's Almighty power is never violated by men!
So as you plan your day ask this question. What does God want done in the world I see within my reach? Make your plans to accomplish things that further those desires. You will be blessed beyond your fondest imagination.
"Lord Jesus, show me today how to do the things that Your heart desires. And may You be praised forever. Amen."
