Develop A Plan

But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice. But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. James 3:14-17

Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans. Proverbs 16:3

Ways We Fail to Commit to the Lord

  1. We commit only superficially
  2. We give God temporary control

In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps. Proverbs 16:9

“God brings about the best possible results by the best possible means for the most possible people for the longest possible time.” – Chip Ingram
