    For thought and meditation

    Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass. PSALM 37:5
    Don’t plan without God. God seems to have a delightful way of upsetting the plans we have made, when we have not taken Him into account. We get ourselves into circumstances that were not chosen by God, and suddenly we realize that we have been making our plans without Him— that we have not even considered Him to be a vital, living factor in the planning of our lives. And yet the only thing that will keep us from even the possibility of worrying is to bring God in as the greatest factor in all of our planning.
    In spiritual issues it is customary for us to put God first, but we tend to think that it is inappropriate and unnecessary to put Him first in the practical, everyday issues of our lives. If we have the idea that we have to put on our “spiritual face” before we can come near to God, then we will never come near to Him. We must come as we are.
    Don’t plan with a concern for evil in mind. Does God really mean for us to plan without taking the evil around us into account? “Love…thinks no evil” (1 Corinthians 13:4-5). Love is not ignorant of the existence of evil, but it does not take it into account as a factor in planning. When we were apart from God, we did take evil into account, doing all of our planning with it in mind, and we tried to reason out all of our work from its standpoint.
    Don’t plan with a rainy day in mind. You cannot hoard things for a rainy day if you are truly trusting Christ. Jesus said, “Let not your heart be troubled…” (John 14:1). God will not keep your heart from being troubled. It is a command— “Let not….” To do it, continually pick yourself up, even if you fall a hundred and one times a day, until you get into the habit of putting God first and planning with Him in mind.
    when the dust settles and the smoke clears all that matters is I hear the words " well done my good and faithfully servant "

    Really good thoughts . Just part of his plan for all of us ...he is to be part of our daily lives . Our innate compulsion , our first thoughts are to control our own lives in this uncertain world . I know because I speak from personal experience .

    We want to throw into play our own ideas of 'CONTROLLING' situations in our or others lives around us . In truth our first response should be to get in contact with our Lord and talk to him . To be truthful....We don't control squat ! Without him we 'chose' to be 'lost' relying on ourselves . And like petulant children we expect him to back up our own flawed plans . It helps to realize we are only part of a greater work in any situation . The next thing to do is give him time , I'll say that again because it's where I have failed many times ...GIVE HIM TIME !

    In the process of giving him that time stay in contact with him ...he's working on it . Tell him your thoughts , ask for his guidance and still your mind to hear his Spirit in you .
    No turning back , No turning back !

    Work out your own salvation, for it is God who works in you both to will and to do His good will.

    There is no 'right' that requires me to work for you or you to work for me!

    Amen. A lot of great thoughts here today.
    Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
