Perspective

Photo: The farmhouse

So often we pray, Lord, give us our desires, establish our plans, bless our ministries.

When I saw this lovely farmhouse yesterday and the size of it compared to the back yard God created, it was as if the Lord was saying, “Here’s an idea. How about you pray to be a part of what I am doing? How about you pray that my desires become your desires, that my will be done on earth, that you can bless my ministry by consulting me on my plans?”

“Your project is lovely, but I have bigger plans.”

Many are the plans in the mind of a man,
    but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand. (Proverbs 19:21)
