GOD PAUSE There is such a tendency --- even a mind-set --- that causes you to think you are in control of things. You are the one in charge of your life. So you go ahead and make all the plans you want. You make decisions and call the shots. You make plans for your future. But there is one thing missing in it all --- Me. Above and over it all are My plans, My desires and My purposes for your life. Whether you feel or see it or not, I direct your steps as you move your feet. And I choose the steps to get you where you need to be. So “Before you do anything, put your trust totally in Me and not in yourself. Then every plan you make will succeed” (Proverbs 16:3).
