Father, at the beginning of the year, we made plans, set time lines and set goals for what we wanted to achieve this year. As we look at our plans we see some plans are behind the schedule we had set or some things we wanted to do have not been done at all.
These realizations can cause us to feel like failures or to feel like we’ve not obtained everything we’ve been pursuing and, if we’re not careful; these feelings will cause us to give up. Remind us that our plans must take a backseat to the plans you have for us. Nothing we’ve planned is better than what you have already ordained.
Everything is not going to go the way we’ve planned, but we’re sure that everything will go the way you’ve ordained. Help us mature to a point that, when what you’ve ordained overrides our plans; we do not fret, complain or grumble. Instead, we rejoice knowing that you have our best interest at heart.
You planned our perfect path long ago and you know what’s best for us. You will perfect us until we fit into your perfect plan. Thank you Lord for caring so much about us that you planned for our greatness. Therefore; we press towards the higher calling, which is in Christ Jesus!
In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
