After the vision comes the plan. What are your plans? Long life? Family? Never get married? Move to another country? Never leave your home town?

We develop plans for all sorts of things. We plan to get groceries or go to the movies. We plan to get an education or a job. Part of the thrill in life is the plan.

How about the proud owner of the lottery ticket before the drawing? Big plans...millions of plans...Buy a house...take a long vacation...a new car? Every lottery ticket owner has plans alright.

Just make sure your plans include the plan of God. There is no better way or destination. It'll involve love, courage and risks. Sounds is.

Ephesians 1:5 (MSG)
5 Long, long ago he decided to adopt us into his family through Jesus Christ. (What pleasure he took in planning this!)

At what point does God's plan include us ... no superficial answer, like, "before the earth was formed, he had you on his mind.." I am talking everyday plans.
I like the fact that you included risk, cause it's something that one don't do, when He blueprints you plans?

Long ago He planned to adopt us...what an amzing verse for your post today. It still knocks my socks off to see God's plans become real right beofre my eyes. Things that took years, a multitude of judgements and various decisions...and His amazing work still takes my breath away.
We are praying for you and your ministry this week. Embrace and enjoy your day! Thank you for your concise and poignant posts - I always look forward to being able to read you!
