Future Plans Are Exciting To Make … So Much To Celebrate And Anticipate!

This week I have been impacted by the significance of strategic plans.

I am beginning to see a much longed for “preferred plan” emerging on several fronts and I know that they are becoming a reality because the process behind them is divinely designed and carefully crafted.

It’s good to plan for the future.

In doing this, we assure that we are living with His destiny in mind and that we are responding to His highest calling.

This is life at it’s best … and the truth is that …

Future Plans Are Exciting To Make … So Much To Celebrate And Anticipate!

We know that God has plans for us, plans to proper us, not harm us … and always with the intent to provide us with a hope-filed future.

In fact, these are the very words of Jeremiah 29:11-13. “For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”

You see because of God’s desires for us, He invites us to dream with Him, to dare to follow Him and to determine to live for Him fully … against all odds and beyond every cost.

Living life in this way empowers our call, enlarges our capacity and most of all, it will enable us to capture His best for our lives!

These words should build faith in our hearts, fill us with true celebration and cause us to longingly and lovingly anticipate favor from the Lord in every way.

JB Cachila, who writes for Christianity Today, adds his voice to our discussion in a most powerful and practical way. Likely, all of us will find ourselves here in one way or another.

“1) Some Christians think of what they want to achieve, make plans for it, and then pray for it to happen.

This approach is selfish: it’s based on what a person wants. He merely asks God to bless his plans, instead of seeking God to obey His will.

2) Some Christians pray, but don’t read God’s Word before making any plan.

While this approach starts in prayer, it does not continue with God’s Word. Without God’s guidance, through His Word, our plans likely won’t be totally in line with His.

3) Some Christians, lastly, pray and seek God’s Word for guidance before making plans.

At times, they even ask mature Christians for counsel and input. And then after much prayer, Bible-reading and counsel, they proceed to make their plans.

This third approach is the best way to make future plans. We seek God before planning anything.”

This is wise counsel and it merits our deepest consideration as we continue to seek His best for our lives.

God is with us, He is for us and He promises to stay with us … in all things at all times!

I want to encourage you to set your heart towards Him, seek to know and do His good pleasure … and to stand expectantly knowing that you will see His grace and glory in all that you do.

I am in … and you?


“…Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 1:6 NIV
