Let’s welcome guest writer: Christa Hutchins. She shows you how to have a prayer for your plan in this incredible blog.
To plan or not to plan? That is the question we struggle with as Christians.
The same Bible that says “A wise man thinks ahead” also says “Live one day at a time.” No wonder we are sometimes confused. Which are we supposed to do?
The simple answer is “Both.”
James gives us a little bit of direction:
Look here, you people who say, ‘Today or tomorrow we are going to such and such a town, stay there a year, and open up a profitable business.’ How do you know what is going to happen tomorrow? For the length of your lives is as uncertain as the morning fog—now you see it; soon it is gone. What you ought to say is, ‘If the Lord wants us to, we shall live and do this or that.’ Otherwise you will be bragging about your own plans, and such self-confidence never pleases God.” James 4:13-16 (TLB)
