Prepare and Make Plans to Proceed to The Next Level (Morning)
TODAY’S FOOD FOR THE SOUL
Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in your mother’s womb I chose you. Before you were born I set you apart. I appointed you to be a prophet to the nations.”
For centuries, battle not only winnable by a sheer number of force and units but by strategies and preparations. Great powerhouses in the ancient and modern world had at least one memorable individual with a great and powerful mind. Let’s take a look at some. The legendary Alexander the Great, conquered most of Europe. Genghis Khan had Subutai at his disposal. Horatio Nelson led England to victories after victories. And the one that could make Rome, the eternal city kneeled, Hannibal.
Each strategist and military leaders have their style and touch. If they are faced with the same enemy, their approach may be different as well. One thing in common we should learn from those great figures is: they prepared themselves and have plans. Your strategy may be sound but without proper logistics and preparation, the enemy would crush you in no time.
We, as the footsoldiers of God, have Him as our military leader, supreme commander, and brilliant strategist. He planned our lives, down to the most trivial one, even before we were born. His plan for us is plain and simple, to make each of us successful, happy, content, and fruitful. Now, what about us? Is it our duty as well to prepare ourselves and make plans. Yes! 2021 is knocking at the door, it would bring new and good news for the prepared ones. If you finally make up your mind and have a list of the plan and logistical support, then bring them in front of Him. After all, He owns your life. Let Him judges your plans and make corrections if needed.
Our God UNDERSTANDS THE IMPORTANCE OF PLANNING and PREPARATIONS.
1. In your opinion, is it necessary to make plans and prepare?
2. Why does God teach us how to make a good plan for our lives?
3. Have you made plans for the incoming year?
“Father, we are grateful because You give us an excellent example of how to make a good plan and preparation. Our lives are Yours and we dedicate it for Your Glory alone. Make our lives fruitful and can benefit others. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.”
