There are many times in my life when I have made plans or set goals without really taking into consideration God’s plan. Not that I didn’t consider God at all, but more that I made plans and then committed them to God rather than enquire of the Lord before actually completing my plan. If I’m completely honest with you, most of the time those plans came to ruin and they were often interrupted by God himself.
What I have learned over the years is that not everything that seems good is what God actually wants me to do. I have learned that not every success is good success – in fact for me, true success is the will of God.
