God’s Plan

Part of what I do is to help businesses develop a God centered plan for their future. Craig and I were reviewing his recently crafted vision, mission, and values statements when I gave him the opportunity to breeze through this section. He refused.

His review of the homework I had previously given him helped him realize that his previous vision was his, not necessarily God’s. Hours later we had drafted a new vision statement that seemed more pleasing to God, and to us.

Psalm 33:10-11 teaches, “The Lord foils the plans of the nations; he thwarts the purposes of the peoples. But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever.”

To be a good steward of God’s business or resources we need to seek and submit to His plan, not ours.
