Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the LORD that will stand.  —Proverbs 19:21

No wisdom, no understanding, no counsel can avail against the LORD. —Proverbs 21:30

Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.”  Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.  Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.”  As it is, you boast in your arrogant schemes. All such boasting is evil.  If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them. —James 4:13-17

            What do you have planned today?  Is it according to the purpose of the Lord?  Have we considered if it is the Lord’s will what we have planned today?  Is our plan for today the good we ought to do?  Only the Lord’s counsel can stand.  Only His understanding is accurate.  Only His wisdom is what matters.  May our decisions we make today and the rest of our lives be in line with His desires.

            So, may we honor Him as we live life today and for the rest of our lives.  Dear Father may this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus.
