“A man’s mind plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps and makes them sure.” Proverbs 16:9

In our devotion Trusting God day by day, I love when Joyce says, “We can build without God as our foundation, but like any building without a strong foundation, we will eventually fall.” If you have driven anywhere in Princeton lately you would see lots of building going on. In our neighborhood it seems like a new house is built every day. It’s a little crazy to me how fast they are being built, but they are obviously up to code and people are moving in.

It makes me think: what if we didn’t have blueprints before we started to build? What would the outcome be? Could we complete the building without a plan? I’m sure the most experienced builders could build a house without a plan, just not sure it could stand the test of time. Life is that way too. If we try to go out and do things on our own, I’m sure we can get things done. But, will they last? Will it be right? God and His Word are our blueprints, our directions. When we line ourselves up with His will in our life, when we allow Him to be our foundation we build to code every time. He knows all things and His plan is perfect, even when we don’t see it – He is moving in our lives! Take a minute today and read His blueprints for the building that’s taking place in your life, ask Him to show you where you are vulnerable and then allow Him to build in you!

Prayer: Father God, thank you for your plan in our lives, thank you for being our blueprints and our foundation. Forgive us for the times we are not up to code and when we try to do things on our own. Show us today where you are building in our lives and give us insight to the plan you have for the next step. We love you and we praise you first! In Jesus name, Amen!!
