Your Monday Muse from Switch_October 2020

The Bible is very clear about the steps we are to take in setting goals and making plans for our future.

First, we must seek HIM.

“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6:33

Then, we can prepare ourselves.

“Prepare your work outside; get everything ready for yourself in the field, and after that build your house.” Proverbs 24:27

After which we should lean into the Lord and His Word.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.” Proverbs 3:5

Of course, as humans it’s not easy to FIRST seek Him and then Trust Him. Usually, we are too busy trying to plan and accomplish. We often don’t come to Him until after we’ve struggled and our hope feels removed. However, if we can find a way to always put GOD first, we can rest easy as we trust Him to bring to fruition all the seeds we have sown through our hard work.

Dear Heavenly Father,

We thank you for giving us a blueprint in your Word to follow as we run the race set before us. Help us to count on you Father and to put you first even as we strive to grow and learn. We love you and want to follow your will for our lives knowing that there may be just as many times that you tell us no as the times you tell us yes. We trust that you only want the best for us. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
