Principles of Planning-6

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)
5. The Consultations: Proverbs 15:22, “Without counsel plans go wrong, but with many advisers they succeed.”
While making your plans you need to make consultations. As wise as King Solomon was, he advised us to learn from others and consult wide. You might think your plan is full proof until you subject it to expert opinion. One thing about making plans sometimes is the fact that we bring in the full compliment of our emotions. Our emotions most often than not be-clouds our objectivity making it difficult for us to see clearly. Just one look from a wise and objective man can easily reveal the lapses in our plans.
Also note that one person cannot hope to know everything, you need the contribution of others. Don’t be so independent that you think yourself above counsel. Read the wisdom of others who have
gone ahead of you. Talk to experienced wise people. Watch
the way others do things and learn from their mistakes and
Get all the good inputs you can then settle down to sieve the information gathered then make an informed plan. If the wisest man that ever lived consulted experts, I think you’ll need to consider his advice.
6. The Doing Part: Proverbs 31:15 –16, “She rises while it is yet night and provides food for her household and tasks for her maidens. She considers a field and buys it; with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.”
Your plan should not just be a noun, it must become a verb. You’ve got to get up early and keep at it. Hit the ground running. Put a time frame on each activity and work towards it. There are things to do in preparation for 2015…to be continued
