Teach me to do your will.
It’s difficult to succeed without a plan.
If the Lord is in your plan, you up your chances of success: “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed” (Prv 16:3).
But shouldn’t there be more to it than asking him to approve and bless what you have already decided to do? Wouldn’t it be better to pursue his plan and your part in it?
“Show me your ways, O Lord, teach me your paths” (Ps 25:4).
When you commit to that path, you open the door to his plan: “This is the way; walk in it” (Is 30:21).
Then he will “equip you with everything good for doing his will” (Heb 13:21).
Write your plans in pencil;
His in indelible ink.
