This morning, as I study, the thought came about a recent conversation I overheard regarding a quarterback whose team is going to the championship game. He was being praised while I immediately was reminded that he wouldn’t be that great if he didn’t have good receivers. Then, was thinking about how needed the blockers were! As I was thinking along this line, I thought when someone is healthy but has a broken-down car, a good car mechanic would be much greater than a doctor.
Soon my heart filled with love and gratitude for everyone, no matter what his station in life must be. I was led to think about prayer and often we may want to ask God to bless our plans rather than ask Him what His plan is for us. Today I will be praying with Jeremiah 29:11 which states “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'”
