Principles of Planning-1

Luke 14:28 “Is there anyone here who, planning to build a new house, doesn’t first sit down and figure the cost so you’ll know if you can complete it?”
Luke 14:29 “If you only get the foundation laid and then run out of money, you’re going to look pretty foolish. Everyone passing by will poke fun at you…”(MSG)
If there is something you must do to make 2015 your best year yet, it is Planning. You’ve got to have a workable, well thought out plan for making progress in the new year.
A plan according to dictionary is a set of intended actions, usually mutually related, through which one expects to achieve a goal. We serve a God who plans, He doesn’t do things anyhow. If you check our world and look carefully, you’ll see the product of meticulous and careful planning by a master mind, Jehovah God Himself. Hear this:
Jeremiah 29:11 “I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out–plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.” (MSG)
Acts 2:23 “God had already planned and decided that Jesus would be handed over to you. So you took him and had evil men put him to death on a cross.” (CEV)
Acts 2:23 “This Jesus [was] delivered up according to the
definite plan and foreknowledge of God.”(ESV)
From the above scriptures we can see that God is a God who does all things according to plan, so it befits us to approach the most important things of life with forethought and plan, not haphazardly.
God plans and you’re made in his image, it is only natural that you should be a planner too. If you must have a better year in 2015, then you must plan for it. Success is not wished for, it is carefully planned for, that’s why over the next few days we’ll look at what it takes to plan.
In our text, we saw how planning comes in handy during the construction of a building…to be continued
