“The law of Moses could not save us, because of our sinful nature. But God put into effect a different plan to save us. He sent his own Son in a human body like ours, except that ours are sinful. God destroyed sin’s control over us by giving his Son as a sacrifice for our sins.”Romans 8:3 (NLT)
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT)
God is the ultimate planner. He planned the creation of the universe from nothing.
God did not leave anything to chance. It may seem that salvation through Jesus Christ was a “Plan B,” but it was actually the established plan that God followed from the very beginning of our human existence.
Planning is described as, “a method for achieving an end; a procedure; and a detailed formulation of a program of action” (http://www.merriam-webster.com). Plans allow us to stay organized and focused. When we plan, we are emulating God. He is the One who showed us that planning is good because it prevents disastrous results and paves a way to the future.
