I was going all out in my mind one day trying to plan my future when the Holy Spirit of God stopped me. The Lord reminded me to let Him plan my future! See, I was trying to plan out the steps I would take going forward in life. But a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ is not to plan his or her steps and plan out the future apart from God!
If we genuinely believe Jesus Christ is Lord, we are to live like Jesus Christ is Lord. We are to submit ourselves to the lordship of Jesus. We are to surrender the future to Him and to let the Holy Spirit of God lead and direct our steps forward in life.
The starting point? PRAY! SEEK GOD! READ THE BIBLE! LISTEN TO THE HOLY SPIRIT SPEAK TO OUR HEARTS IN LINE WITH THE BIBLE! SEEK COUNSEL FROM OTHER FOLLOWERS OF JESUS! HEAR GOD! OBEY GOD!
How NOT to plan your future? DO NOT plan your future without God leading the way!
HOW to plan your future? Humble yourself before God almighty and let Him lead the way! AMEN!
Cry out to God to order your steps and your future as you go forth following Jesus! Hallelujah! AMEN!
