Devo: Ask God for a strategic plan 

“Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, ‘This is the way, walk in it.'” – Isaiah 30:21

Jesus understood God’s strategic plan for his life – the redemption of humankind – and lived each day of His life in the light of it.  At the end of His life He could pray, “I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given me to do.” (John 17:4) Strategic planning is critical to success in any undertaking.  And as a redeemed child of God, your strategy should come from God, otherwise pressures and people can take you in the wrong direction. Jesus could easily have gotten sidetracked by the demands of the crowd and the misguided thinking of His disciples.  How did He avoid that? By nights spent in prayer, and predawn meetings with His Father seeking guidance.  Jesus lived by this principal: “The Son can do nothing by Himself.  He does only what He sees the Father doing.  Whatever the Father does, the Son does also…. I judge as God tells me.  Therefore, my judgement is just because I carry out the will of the one who sent me, not my own will. (John 5:19, 30). When seeking a plan for your life, the first book you should open is the Bible.  Don’t adopt someone else’s plan unless God told you to do the same thing, or you’ll end up frustrated.  You ask, “You mean God has a strategy and a plan for my life that He will reveal to me?”  YES! “Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, ‘This is the way, walk in it.'”
