Proverbs 21:5

Today’s devotion was written by Stacy Williams, the Director of Operations and a member of Faith Lutheran Church.

“The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance, but everyone who is hasty comes only to want.” Proverbs 21:5

This passage takes me back to everything we were taught as a child. Taking the time to make a plan and working hard to achieve the plan will fill our life with the abundance that God has promised.

In a society that has become accustomed to getting things immediately, we often think we can take shortcuts to get there faster.  It has been proven many times that short cuts do not work and often leaves us wanting more.

God has given us the plan, the roadmap to all that God has in store for us. All we have to do is slow down, walk the path, allowing God to lead us, and we will want for nothing.

Let us pray, my Heavenly Father, you give us all we need and sometimes we forget the plan you have laid out for us. I ask that you continue to guide us, leading us not into temptation, but in the direction of your everlasting love. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    He has the plan, the roadmap for our lives. “Slow down and let Him lead us and we will want for nothing”. Thank you Stacy Williams for reminding us of God’s assurance.
