Plans, plans, plans...

Many people come and take Living Waters and they have Big Plans.  It is natural to have hopes - that’s a good thing.  But sometimes we can allow those hopes to build up momentum and they can become Plans.  We want God to deal with A, B, and C, and we’d prefer if He kindly left alone E, F, and G, thank you very much.

Sometimes I find myself praying that people will be open to surprises.  God may have plans to touch something entirely different.
Psalm 94:11  "The Lord knows all human plans; he knows that they are futile."

Often in prayer, after a big emotional release, a participant will say, "Wow, I had no idea that was in there."

Prov 19:21 "Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails."

Below is a video of a guy that had Big Plans.  His plan was to propose to his girlfriend in the middle of the forest and to capture her reaction on a video camera.  A lovely idea, but our plans are not always God's plans... or even the dog's.
