Wednesday's Devotion

In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.
Proverbs 16:9(NIV)

Have you ever tried something and got the results you wanted and then tried the same thing again and got different results? This happened to Moses in the Bible. The Israelites needed water and God told Moses to strike the rock. He struck the rock and water flowed out freely. Another time they needed water again, and God told Moses, “Speak to the rock.” Do you know what Moses did? He went over and struck the rock. He thought, “Hey, it worked last time; it’ll work this time.” But God had a different plan. Water did come from the rock but Moses struck the rock instead of spoke to the rock as God commanded. Moses never received the chance to live in the Promised Land because he tried an old way in a new season.

Have you ever tried an old method in a new season???  Did it work?...
The point is, we have to stay open and make adjustments to stay in tune with God’s plan so we can live in the promise. Proverbs 3:5-6 tells us to lean not unto our own understanding but seek God’s will in ALL that we do…

You can do the same thing the same way you did last time and get different results but -- is it a part of God’s plan? It may not be something major but like Moses, maybe it’s just something small.

The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand. Psalm 37:23-24 (KJV)
The steps (not leaps) but the steps of a good person are ordered by the Lord...

Sometimes a small tweak or a small adjustment can make a major difference in the outcome and you will live in the promise. Today, make sure you aren’t doing things just because it’s the way you always did it before. Instead, listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit of God inside. Follow His leading and stay in sync (in step) with the wonderful plan He has for you and your promises will not forfeit but flourish!!!

Today's Prayer:
Heavenly Father, I submit my mind, my will, and my heart to You. Help me to see clearly what Your plan is for me. Help me to stay close to You always; not living in the past but pressing forward to the new things You have in store for me, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
