A thought for Sunday: Plans?

excerpt from's Daily Devotional--

You must have a game plan from God. I remember so clearly the first time I read the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, how God always gave His children a game plan. From the exact measurements for Noah to build the ark, to the Ten Commandments, to the way the tabernacle was to be constructed, to how the armies were to take the city of Jericho, all the way to the founding of the early churches...God always gave His children a specific game plan.

I don't care what the situation you may be facing today is, whether it is a health issue, financial, a relationship problem, work or school related, the fact is God can give you a game plan today to guide you to victory in whatever battle you are fighting today. Those who are successful, those who are moving forward in their life, those who are bearing fruit for the Kingdom of God . . . are those who have a plan from God and are executing that plan on a day-to-day basis.
The natural question is how do you get a plan from God. That comes from the intimate daily relationship with the Lord I encourage you daily to maintain. Does the general of an army give his battle plan to his troops or to total strangers? Of course he gives them to his troops. God is the same way. He has a game plan for His children, but you have got to be plugged in to hear Him.

Most people languish in their circumstances and never get beyond them because they have no game plan. Most people are ineffective in their Christian service because they have no game plan. Most people fail because they are trying to execute their own plan. To be effective you must get a game plan, and to be successful that plan must come from God!
