Do you plan for good things?

“…those who plan what is good find love and faithfulness.” Proverbs 14:22

Do you wake up every morning expecting favor & blessing on everything you do or do you wake up dreading the day? Do you plan for what is good or think about all the bad things that can happen? When we plan for what is good, when we focus on all that is good in our lives, scripture tells us that we find love. Who doesn’t want to live in love!  We know that God is love which means that when we plan for what is good, we will find God in the midst of our plans.

We have to learn to not dwell on and let the negative voices of the world steal your focus, get you off course and/or rob us of joy + love. Don’t start planning for a bad day, choose to plan for good. The scripture doesn’t say, “Plan for good as long as the economy is booming.”  It doesn’t say, “Plan for good as long as your health is great.”  It doesn’t say “Plan for good as long as your children behave.”  It doesn’t say “Plan for good as long as the housing market is strong.” We will all face adversity  in our lives but we don’t want to plan for adverse days do we?   No, we want and can plan for good days, great days even because we serve a God who is good, and He is ready, willing and able to bring us through any adversity we face! 


“Father in heaven, thank You for the good plan You have for my life. I choose Your plan and ask that You direct my mind and thoughts according to Your purposes. Fill me with Your peace and joy. I set my mind on You and boldly embrace the good things You have for me today in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
