Daily Devotional for Friday 8th November
#5
CHRIST APOSTOLIC CHURCH

THE LIVING WATER {July ~ Dec., 2019}

DAILY DEVOTIONAL GUIDE

Friday, November 8, 2019

- World Town Planning Day
TOPIC: GOOD PLANNING
Read Proverbs 21:5

5. The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness; but of every one that is hasty only to want.
MEMORISE: Plans are established by counsel; by wise counsel wage war (Proverbs 20:18)

EXPOSITION

One of the major activities in management is planning. No wonder it is said, 'He who fails to plan has already planned to fail', and 'Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance.' By planning, it is easy to achieve goals and objectives. What does it mean to plan? By planning, you define in a clear term what you want to achieve, how you want to achieve it, and the time when you want it done. In a simple way, planning answers, "what, why, when and how?"

However, today's text wants us to understand the difference between good and bad plans.

'The plans of the diligent lead surely to plenty, but those of everyone who is hasty, surely to poverty' (Prov. 21:5). Success in any endeavour is guaranteed, only if relevant and good plan is put in place.

God planning is a product of wise counsel - counsel premised on the wisdom of God's Word. Do not plan in isolation (cf. Eccl. 4:9ff). Plan with facts and figures. Plan with the understanding that God is the Master Planner. It is wrong to do anything without carrying God along.

That is bad planning method!
Correct information and true knowledge is important to have a good plan. Jesus knew what He was coming to do on earth, what it would cost Him and the necessary preparations. That is vision. Learn from good leaders (Lk. 14:28-32).

Some good things about proper planning: you would be able to identify the grey areas in a given endeavour that could bring failure. Planning would enhance your preparation, because proper preparation precedes proper performance. By the planning that emanates from wise counsel, you can get your task accomplished, and your dreams would be fulfilled, in Jesus' name.

PRAYER POINTS

1. Lord, help me to put my life in proper planning by allowing You to direct all my activities.
2. Lord, deliver our country from bad governance and political instability.
3. Lord, help Your Church to be full of insight, vision and passion for perishing souls.

EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: Jeremiah 32:12 - 34:4; Hebrews 1:4 - 2:10
