”…then we turned back…”  [Deuteronomy 2:1]

The surrender of yesterday becomes security in today…when God’s Sovereignty and control is acknowledged.  In his book ‘First Things First’ Stephen Covey says, “Doing the right thing for the right reason in the right way is the key to quality of life, and that can only come through the power of an educated conscience that aligns us with vision, mission, and true north”

The confidence of an educated conscience comes through the knowing and working of God’s plan for your life.  Three things are necessary.

1)—The plan is Spirit led–David knew this confidence when he gave his son Solomon ”… the plans of all that the Spirit had put in his mind…”—Godly control brings Spiritual guidance and confidence.  [1 Chronicles 28:12]

2)  The plan is very specific —Godly control maintains correct alignment, David said. ”…All this…I have in writing from the hand of the Lord upon me… he gave me understanding in all the details of the plan.’  [1 Chronicles 28:19] Don’t add ‘pork’ to God’s plan it will only ‘clog’ up the life flow!

3) The plan is guaranteed successful”…Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God my God is with you.  He will not fail you…until the work …is finished”.  [1 Chronicles 28:20]

Don’t write the plan and take it to God—go to God and write His plan, His plan is your destiny and fail proof.  To hear the plan of God we must be open and humble enough to grow and change—man is not an island unto himself and only as he is connected to the bigger picture of mankind will the vision and mission direct him to true north.
