Many times on a Saturday morning when we would wake up I would ask, "What's the plan?" (unless I knew ahead of time) Saturday is the only day with activities that are "optional" and open for change. So I always wanted to know either when we went to bed or when we woke up what the plan for the day was. Troy, however, is a little more of a "fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants" random kind of guy. I'm sure my question felt binding to him. I, on the other hand, want to know what I'm doing every moment of every day. (I don't want to miss anything) I'm not spontaneous at all. I tried it once. It doesn't work for me. If I want to be spontaneous...I plan my spontenaity.
But the question, "What's the plan?", is not just a good question for what you seek to accomplish in the day's activities but also what you seek to accomplish for God. If we want to grow in God daily and we want to witness for Him effectively we have to live for Him consciously.
At the beginning of the day is the best time to ask God, "What's the plan?" "God, what's Your agenda for me today? Help me live with my eyes open to the opportunities you present to me today. Don't let me pass up an opportunity to share the love of Jesus with someone. Reveal Your Word to me so that my life can be fruitful for the Kingdom of God."
If we ask God for His plan His plan He'll give it. Then it's up to us to listen and live it.
