Planning


Plans are established by seeking advice;
so if you wage war, obtain guidance.
Proverbs 20:18

How many times has it happened to us that we make important decisions in haste and with little analysis and we end up committing serious errors which then we have to deplore for a long time? As in all things, planning is very important to our progress toward spiritual maturity. There are very few things that require that decisions be taken in a split second. For the vast majority of situations we face, we have enough time to review the case, consider the options, consult with our loved ones or with people with more experience, validate with the word of God, present our plans to God in prayer and wait for his illumination or his signal as to how to proceed. Of course, if in this preparation process we spend more time than necessary we may never get to be able to make informed decisions which would also have a negative impact for us.

When we do things in an orderly manner and everything is based on the word of God, God will give us a very quick response. If we act lightly or hastily God will not bless our decisions. So it depends on us that our decisions are made with quality and end up being a blessing for all. The word of God tells us that victory is won through many advisers. [1] Let us not consider ourselves wise in our own opinion but rather let us consider different approaches based on the diversity of the experience possessed by those who are willing to help us with good advice on the important tasks of planning and decision-making. That way we will be well prepared with a strategy in hand to address the situation before us. To God alone be the glory!
