Plan Not to Plan

In this comic strip, Jeremy seems to be trying to get out of work. On the other hand, he may have a point.

I think we should be very careful about making plans and goals. I have gotten myself into a lot of trouble when I have made big goals and plans for myself. For me, it works better to first pray about a thing, and then pray some more. I would rather let Him lead me into something than to make big plans. As Proverbs 16:3 instructs us, we should first commit our way to Him and then He will establish the plans He desires of us.

Proverbs 16:9

The mind of man plans his way,

But the Lord directs his steps.

Proverbs 19:21

Many are the plans in a man’s heart,

But the counsel of the Lord, it will stand.

Proverbs 16:3

Commit your works to the Lord,

And your plans will be established.
