Is God your navigator or just your back-up plan? That depends on whether you think you have a better plan than He does. When we believe His way is best, we start with His plan first thing in the morning and we finish with it in the evening. We don’t vary from it because it’s our experience that His plan is always better! The days when I follow my plan instead of His are ridiculously substandard! And why in the world do I engage in such foolishness? Well, I have bad habits, I forget how wise and powerful He is, I fail to remember I don’t know everything, I believe my ideas are more exciting or satisfying than His, etc. However, the days I seek His guidance throughout the entire day–are filled with miracles!

God said that He has huge, wonderful plans for us! “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord.” (‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29:11-14a‬) God isn’t hiding from us. He doesn’t play games with our life and neither should we. When we live as close to Him as we can, He reveals HIS hour by hour plan for our day. It’s never boring. It’s always satisfying. It’s always an adventure. He places us in His stream of eternal blessings. We learn not to worry about tomorrow because He’s been there. He hears our heart speak and He embraces us with His response.

Why would we wait for our own plans to fall apart before making Him our navigator? When we spend time with Him first thing in the morning, we tune in to Him. There’s no better plan we could possibly conceive today than to listen to Him!
