God has a goal in mind for me.

  • Am I ready?
  • Have I prepared?
  • Will I be up to the task?

Jesus challenges me to get ready and to be up to the task. I am God’s plan A. There is no plan B.

The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance, but everyone who is hasty comes only to poverty.

ESV (Wheaton, IL: Crossway Bibles, 2016), Proverbs 21:5

We can rest assured of God’s promise: “Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you” (James 4:8). As we pray, study Scripture, and look to live holy before the Master, He will reveal His plan for us in His perfect time and in a way we can understand.

Or what I purpose, do I purpose according to the flesh, so that with me there will be yes, yes and no, no at the same time?
