Where Does God Fit In?

Woe to the rebellious children,” says the Lord, “Who take counsel, but not of Me, and who devise plans, but not of My Spirit, that they may add sin to sin; who walk to go down to Egypt, and have not asked My advise, to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh, and to trust in the shadow of Egypt! Therefore the strength of Pharaoh shall be your shame, and trust in the shadow of Egypt shall be your humiliation. For his princes were at Zoan and his ambassadors came to Hanes. They were all ashamed of a people who could not benefit them, or be help or benefit, but a shame and also a reproach.” Isaiah 30:1-5
Leaders and organizations constantly make plans. Yet Isaiah issues a warning to every leader who develops plans without consulting God’s design. leaders must remember just how tentative strategic plans need to be. No one knows the future except God. Keep in mind the following equation as you plan: Our Preparation + God’s Providence = Success. Leaders must constantly ask if their plans fit God’s revealed will for them and their organization. Then they must ask if their plans remain relevant to the needs of their mission, their values, their vision and their long-range objectives. Finally they need to ask if their plans fit the needs of their culture and time.

Avoiding Temptations

“No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.” ‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭10:13‬ ‭ESV‬‬
This picture is a great example that God knows all (including mine) our weaknesses AND provides a way out! Keep your eyes up and look to avoid the temptations of this world.
