God wants us to learn how to be flexible when necessary and to flow along with Him and what He is doing. That doesn’t mean we don’t achieve or get anything done, nor is it an excuse to be “flakey”; it just means we are happy to go, be, do and rest in whatever God is doing our day and futures.
Flexibility means making plans to the best of our understanding whilst remaining open for God to lead us and shift or change where and what we are doing at a moment’s notice. Why? Because we see with our perspective and knowledge of a situation, but He sees everything! God wants to be able to lead and guide us to places of blessing easily, divine appointments He’s been setting up for us to be involved in, and away from sudden danger or attacks from the enemy. The question is, “Will we follow and let Him lead, or will we be independent, dull of hearing and inflexible?”
Today, make your plans, but don’t make them too inflexible and scheduled that you aren’t available for God to direct you. Leave room for spontaneity, fun and those “God set-ups” because they are a lot of fun, and awesome things happen when we learn to go along with the flow of what God is doing right now.
Pray and ask God to teach you how to be more flexible as you trust Him to lead you into all that He has been working on and planning for you today.
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go. I will counsel you with my eye upon you. Do not be as the horse or mule which have no understanding, whose trappings include bit and bridle to hold them in check; otherwise, they will not come near to you”. (Psalm 32:8-9)
Prayer: Lord, thank you that you promise to lead and guide me every day. Please help me to be more flexible and trusting so that I am willing and ready at a moments notice to change or alter my plans to follow your lead. You take the lead, Jesus, and I’ll follow. In Jesus name Amen
