what is God's plan

James 1:5 (nlt) --- If you need wisdom . . . ask him, and he will gladly tell you.

Proverbs 3:6 (nlt) --- Seek his will in all you do, and he will direct your paths.
What is God's plan?  I have to ask that question often.  When I quit asking, I have a problem.  A big problem.  In fact the last couple of weeks has been full of questions pointed in God's direction, and I have had to listen carefully.  The outcome has already been incredible.
If we want to know God's plan, there is only one place to go to understand what it is.  That is to God Himself.  Yet how many of us try to figure out what God wants all on our own?
Yesterday was a tremendous day at The Community as we talked about the things that distract us.  (We have one week left in the Warrior series.)  It has been good.  At the conclusion of the experience many of our guys made a commitment to set aside the distractions that so often catch us and keep us.  Distractions like lust, materialism and pride.
This week I am asking God for direction.  Not so I can know what to do, but I am asking so we can know what the next level is and how to go about putting in place the things He has called us to do.  Mostly I am speaking of ministry to those in need and the homeless.
God is speaking.  It is time to seek Him.  It is time to listen.  It is time to ask what is God's plan?
Psalm 37:23 (nlt) --- The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.
Proverbs 19:21 (nlt) --- You can make many plans,but the Lord's purpose will prevail.
By the way, I'm looking for God to do big, incredible things in the days to come.  The key in all this is we have to remember that all of life is all about Him.  It is all about God. Therefore, we have no choice but to ask what is God's plan.
