The Best Action Plan For Anything in Life
Faith isn’t about having all of the answers, it’s about trusting God in the absence of answers. If you could predict the future, you wouldn’t need faith but since you’re not God you need faith.
Sometimes the best action plan is the one that says “I will say yes to whatever God asks of me.” Sometimes the best plan is the one that just commits to saying “yes.” You may not have all of the information on how to write a business plan. You may not have the money to start a business. You may not have the resources to start working towards your dream–and that’s okay. The key to knowing to how to do something is not found in you, it is found in God. The best plan that you and I could ever develop to make our dreams come true, is the plan to simply trust God.
It’s the plan that says “God, I don’t have the resources to make anything come to pass but I know that you do so I’m following you.”
You may not have the resources in your physical possession but God has them in his heavenly possession. He can move at any moment and cause someone to bless you with office space, finances and/or equipment to launch your dream. If he moves, you have to be ready to move with him. You have to be ready to receive. The only way to be ready is to stay in a ready position. The ready position is the position that steadily says “yes.” Yes God, I will tithe even though I need this last $10 to pay my bill. Yes God, I will honor my boss even though he/she does not honor me. Yes God, I will stay home on the weekends to pray and fast over my dreams.
You never know what God will ask of you. You never know when His request will come; but if you have an action plan in place called “yes” you’ll always be ready to receive when God says “yes” to you. Today could be the day that God says “yes.” Today could be the day that dream comes to pass. Get your action plan together. Get your heart rooted in the word of God. Get your faith committed to saying “yes.”
Reflection: What are you believing God for today? What dreams are you waiting to see come to pass?
Action Plan: As of today, Thursday, February 6, 2014, I commit my faith to saying yes to whatever God asks of me. I will not move in fear due to the resources, money and connections that I do not have. I will not operate in doubt due to the things that have not yet come to pass. Today, I commit to following God. Today, I commit to saying “yes” to God. Yes, I trust you. Yes, I believe in you. Yes, I will honor you. Yes, I will have faith in you and nothing else. Today, my action plan is to commit to saying yes, to all God has for me. All of God’s promises are Yes and Amen (2 Corinthians 1:20).
