Where are you going? What are you doing? Do you want to prosper in your plans? Day by day you are making plans and making decisions according to what you think is right or wrong. But the most important question, are your plans the Lord’s plans? Is it the Lord that builds the house. Is He the one guiding your steps and shining a light on your path? Are you seeking Him to show up powerful in everything you do?
It is through the Lords direction, understanding, and guidance that you will prosper, with wisdom knowledge and insight. You can go do this and strive to do that, but the Lord Himself must be the driving force. If He is not in it, it is in vain. But if you know beyond a shadow of a doubt the Lord is with you, that it is His plans, your actions will prosper, flourish, and abound in incredible works for the Lord.
Seek the Lord that He is the one in your plans, so you do not strive in vain. That He will direct your steps. That you do not go in the wrong direction. Yet you must take action, move forward, stepping out in faith, and let the Lord build it, let Him open those doors, let Him pour out upon you such blessing you can not contain it. Then you will move from anxiety to intensity.
1 Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. 2 It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for he gives to his beloved sleep. Psalm 127:1-2
3 By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; 4 by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches. 5 A wise man is full of strength, and a man of knowledge enhances his might, Proverbs 24:3-5
The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps. Proverbs 16:9
