Yield Your Plans

yield

One of my favorite verses from Proverbs is found in chapter 19.  Verse 21 says this:

Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.

That just cuts me to the quick every time I think I have everything under control.  Each day I wake up thinking I know exactly what my day will look like this verse catches me.  I like to make plans.  I am a planner.  I believe that good planning relieves mass quantities of stress.  God wants us to make plans.  Plans are good.  Where we tend to go awry is when we run ahead of God in our planning.  He has called us to walk in step with Him.  

It’s when I run ahead of God and do my own thing that I get hung up.

Where do you find yourself on the path of life?  Are you running ahead or keeping step with God?
