When we can let go of what’s in our hands and place our complete trust in God, we can be certain that what comes next will always be better than any plan of our own.
TRUTH FOR TODAY: Proverbs 19:21, “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.” (NIV)
Isaiah 55:8-9, “‘For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’ declares the LORD. ‘As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.’”
RELATED RESOURCES: Would you like to worry less about money and find financial rest in God’s Word? In John H. Putnam’s new book, He Spends She Spends — Why God Wants You to Live for Free, you’ll find the “why to” book that explores how we approach our money moments, exposes what’s hidden around our financial choices and shares what God says to do about it.
REFLECT AND RESPOND: Is there something God has put in your hands that is, or has the potential to become, a distraction to Him and His plans for you? It could be anything — a house, a neighborhood, a car, a job, a hobby, or a possession. Would you be willing to let go of something for what God may have in store for you? Please share one something and your prayer for what God may do next.
