There are times when we may plan to do this or that. To go here or there. To move here but we move there. Taking this one job but you really wanted that other one instead and many other things you may planned on doing but when God has a different plan, your life can change big time.
This is why we should pray about everything and listen for His guidance and direction when we pray and be willing to accept what His plans are instead of ours.
We can avoid so many problems, like heartache, stress, worry and other things when we truly seek His counsel and guidance in our life. We should remember to always seek His will instead of ours.
James 4:13-15 says “Come now, you who say, Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit. Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. Instead, you ought to say, If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that.”
Yes indeed! We should always seek His guidance in everything, from going to the store, whether to go on a trip, if we should buy this or that and the many others things.
You see we may plan on doing one thing but He may have plans on sending us in totally different direction. It may be to protect us. It may be to bless us. It may be to bless someone. It may be to help someone. It may be to show us something that He wanted us to see; we can never go wrong when we let Him guide us. It only goes wrong when we (man) gets in Gods way.
