I saw a sign in someone’s home recently that read, “Man’s way leads to a hopeless end. God’s way leads to an endless hope.”
I thought that was a very concise way of contrasting God’s plans with our plans. It’s easy for us to create our own schedules to do the things we want to do. It’s another thing entirely when I begin my day by yielding the rights to my time this day to God.
We always think we know the best way to happiness and success. But the Bible says there is a way that seems right unto a man, but the end of that way is the way of death.
Once we know God’s will, the choice is a simple one. God’s way or the wrong way. Remember, “Man’s way leads to a hopeless end. God’s way leads to an endless hope.” That’s why taking time to detect God’s plan, is really the only way to redeem the time.
