We want to prove ourselves. That’s not what we need. We need to accept God’s plan. We need to ask ourselves:

  • What are you trying to prove?
  • Are you comparing yourself to others?
  • Are you content with money?
  • Are you content with success?
  • Are you content with the respect from others?
  • Are you feeling down?
  • Are you worried about performing well in anything you do?
  • Are you feeling overcome by sin/wrongdoing in your life?

The answer for every question is: Court is Adjourned.

  1. Whenever I’ve done things my way instead of God’s way, and I’m left dealing with the consequences, the Broadway play “Your Arms Too Short To Box With God” often comes to mind. Accepting God’s plan is something I’ve wrestled with my entire life. Sometimes, I’ve even gone so far as to convince myself that what I was doing was His plan. After all, my intentions were good and my business plan reflected Christian values, but it wasn’t His plan for me. By God’s grace, I’ve learned to listen, obey, and yield to His Voice. I’ve also learned that it’s best to build His Kingdom instead of mine. God’s way is ALWAYS best.

    • Hi Lori,

      Thanks for sharing this bit of your story. I have the exact same problem of confusing my plans (which I’ve tried to make good, moral, and wise) with God’s plans.

      Someone once said our plan should be this:
      – After prayer and counsel: Make a plan
      – Then: Commit that plan to God
      – Then: He will direct your paths

      But when he directs your paths, be prepared for him to take you down paths you never envisioned.
