Principles of Planning-3

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?” (MSG)
Acts 2:23 “God had already planned and decided that Jesus would be handed over to you…” (CEV)
…The starting point for the journey is a sense of purpose
without a sense of purpose you’ll give up half way on the journey, that’s if you ever reach the half way mark. Clearly defined purpose will keep you going against all odds because the only thing you’ll be seeing is the destination which will always be your motivating factor. If possible have a vision statement, a mission statement, well spelt out goals and objectives.
2. The God factor: Mark 11:24 “…What things soever ye desire, when ye pray…”
Proverbs 16:3 , “Commit your work to the Lord and your plans will be established.”
The second thing in your planning is prayers or committing the planning process and project to the hands of the all knowing God. I know you’re super smart but the truth is as a born again Christian, the desires you have started from the heart of God the Father Himself. That your purpose was not yours as it were, He put those desires in your heart to start with and it will be foolish of you to attempt carrying them out by your own wisdom and strength.
So, if you want your desires to see the light of day and your purposes achieved or go according to design, then commit it to Him. Meaning, always seek the Lord’s guidance and strength in your planning. Trust his wisdom not yours, then your plans will bear fruit that stays.
When you pray, the Lord will guide you, telling you what you don’t know about the journey and giving you the required courage and direction. He is the all knowing God, trust His judgement…to be continued
