Do you lay your plans before the Lord? When ideas come into your heart do you pray about them or simply just jump in?
There are times to jump in or take leaps of faith, but James reminds us to lay our plans before God. This wisdom comes down through time, right back to Proverbs of the Old Testament. “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord ’s purpose that prevails,” (Proverbs 19:21).
James reminds us not to boast on an unknown future. Instead we should make plans knowing God knows the future, and seek His will and direction forward.
God, help us took seek your guidance and will for our lives. Let us judge our steps by you Word. Amen.
