Scripture: “Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” … If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.” (James 4:15, 17)
Prayer: Lord, help me set aside my plans when they get in the way of what you are doing in and through my life.
Reflection: We miss the mark when we think our plans are better than God’s design for our life. A sure sign that this has happened is when we cannot accept situations that are beyond our control. When we actually believe in God’s will, our peace is secure and is safe from being taken from us.
