We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps. Proverbs 16:9 (NLT)
We all make plans with our lives. From a young age, we think about what we want to be when we grow up, where we want to live, or our dream vacation. At times, our plans can be different than what God desires for each of us. Praying is an act of letting go of our personal agenda and plans by giving them over to God. It helps us to align our focus on what He wants for our lives rather than chasing after our own self-interests.
Prayer: Ask God to help you discern His plans for your life. Be open to the changes He may make as He guides your steps in the right direction.
