Today’s To-Do List

Proverbs 16:9

In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.

Very seldom do I feel like I’m doing something godly. Most of the time I’m doing the best I know to do in the midst of the opportunities that are before me, and God in His providence causes His purposes to go forward. I’m amazed to hear the God-stories that result when we say, “God, with all that’s on my to-do list today, I’ll keep turning my face toward You and let You do what I cannot.” He’ll do that for you. God has plans for each one of us, and He’s going to use our lives in a powerful way.


Heavenly Father, I give You this day. I ask You to take all the tasks and conversations, big things and little things, and use them for Your Kingdom purposes. Keep me faithful to Your plans, Lord, even when I cannot see an immediate result. Thank You for allowing me to have a part in Your work in the earth. In Jesus’ name, amen.
