Do y’all talk to God first about your plans or do you make plans first and then ask God to bless them afterward?
If you read any of my blogs, you will know that I choose to be honest and transparent. So I’ll share that I was the latter part of that question until about a week ago when God got me right on together. 🙃
I’m grateful that I have a ton of ideas and plans -some come from God and some from me. 😩 But I’m at the point in my life in which I realize I’ve made a ton of mistakes. I also realize that God can turn anything for my good see scripture- Romans 8:28
However, I just want my good to work for my good, especially if I can avoid detours by consulting God first and asking for his consideration in my plans.
One thing I’ve realized about God is that he wants to be first in everything we do.
See scripture example:
But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33 KJV
I haven’t always sought him first, but I am now.
How do you seek God first?
I’m glad you asked. I’ll share the practical steps that I have taken to put God first. I’ve mentioned before that I journal pray. So now, I write out a list of my plans and ideas in my journal and I ask God what do you think of them? And then I leave blank lines in my journal for him to speak to me. And I sit quietly and wait. Sometimes he answers immediately, other times he may confirm it with someone else or while I’m reading scripture.
But for me, I’m not sharing any ideas or plans with anyone else until I have a yes from Heaven! Because I want to be in his will when I do all things!
Question of the Day: Do you ask God for his consideration in your plans?
There are many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, that shall stand. Proverbs 19:21 KJV
