Things Are Going According To The Plan

We can make our own plans, but the Lord gives the right answer.

People may be pure in their own eyes, but the Lord examines their motives.

Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed.

The Lord has made everything for his own purposes, even the wicked for a day of disaster.

The Lord detests the proud; they will surely be punished.

Unfailing love and faithfulness make atonement for sin.
By fearing the Lord, people avoid evil.

When people’s lives please the Lord, even their enemies are at peace with them.

Better to have little, with godliness, than to be rich and dishonest.

We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.

The Lord directs the steps of the godly.  He delights in every detail of their lives.
-Proverbs 16:1-9; Psalm 37:23 (NLT)

Even though at times, we feel like failures, or think that things are not turning out right; things are going accord to the plan.  Sometimes, in spite of our best efforts, it seems like nothing works and frustration and disappointment mark our lives; but things are going according to the plan.  And then, when we do succeed: when there is affirmation and applause, and when we feel all lit up and feel like we are floating; but then it all wears off, fades out, and we come down and feel empty again; because things are going according to the plan.

No matter what we choose, things go according to the plan; most of the time, but not always.  An untimely death, a tragic accident, or evil deeds are not part of the plan.  War, famine and human indifference are also not part of the plan.

Things go according to the plan in our lives, as we walk before God and as God watches over us.  The plan is a life walked with and before God, where God transforms us through our fellowship with God.  

The plan is for God to bless us and it is first about our hearts and God's love.  The choices we make are our choices, and no matter what we choose, God's plan for us works.  God does not choose for us, whether is is a good or a bad choice, a righteous or an unrighteous choice or, a loving or an unloving choice.  We choose and God decides.

We can make all sorts of plans, but God has the last word.

We might feel good or feel bad about how our plans are shaping up and turning out, but God is concerned about our hearts.

Whatever your plans are, if you roll with God, you will get there.  Roll with God, do not expect God to roll with you.

The Lord has a response or answer to everything, including evil, that He gives at the time He chooses.

Pride is one thing God hates.  The sin of pride is when we live like we are God.  And God will not tolerate that and teaches us that he resists the proud.

Living in God's love and in being true to God covers us from sinfulness and shields us from evil.

The Lord takes pleasure in our way of living, and His favor resting upon us gives us peace between us and our would-be enemies.

The life walked with God is a life where we are content with less and live by never doing what is not right, for our personal gain.

We calculate our life's plans, but God establishes our lives.

The Lord establishes the journey of the person that He is charmed, dazzled, thrilled, tickled pink or bowled over by.  And that person is the child who loves their papa and rolls with Him.

That is the plan and things are going according to the plan no matter what choices we make.  This is because God does have a plan, God is Lord and He loves us.
