Planning for our future

Continuation of: Putting emphasis on the right plans

Who does not want to make plans for the future?

It is good to think about and plan for our future, and Alisa Jennings thinks most young people ask themselves as they start to enter adulthood (and maybe even many years before). And it is appropriate to do this. It’s a good thing to plan.

But, with all the planning that we do, we need to keep in mind that things may not go according to OUR plan. As much work as we may invest into planning our futures, we don’t have full control over what happens.

We should know that it’s an acknowledgment that God is the one in control, not us. It is God who will determine whether our plans happen or not. When we say and acknowledge this, we are giving up our control — which at first may sound like a scary thing to do, but I’ve found it to be quite the opposite.
