Text: Nehemiah 1: 4
When I heard this, I sat down and wept.
GOD IS AN ORGANISED GOD. Planning is a major or crucial issue in life. Learn to seat down and analyse situations. Learn to calm yourself in making decisions. Don’t ignore people when they want to speak to you. From the above text, Nehemiah heard, but did not stop at hearing. He did something with what he heard.
What do you do with the information you hear? The problem is not with what you heard but what you did with what you heard. What you do with the information you heard determines what will happen to you.
The faith that will move you from where you are now to your destination is through hearing. If Nehemiah had not sat down, he wouldn’t have known what to do, or analyse the situation at hand. He had a vision of rebuilding the wall of Jerusalem but sat down to set out his mission and goals in achieving it.
Learn to sit down in every issue of your life. You can plan everything about your life, education, spiritual, finances, and many more when you are seated. Planning makes us to be prudent. A good plan enables you to know when to take a step of faith.
Have a proper plan for your life or you will live a chaotic life. When you don’t know what to do with your time, the devil occupies it. (An idle hand is the devil’s workshop).
Learn how to plan. Plan your day. When you have a plan it helps you to appreciate the miracle of God better. If you don’t plan your life, it will be hijacked. The reason why people hijack our time or use our lives to achieve their purpose is because we do not have an effective planning for our lives. Proper planning also makes your prayer life effective. It makes your prayer life sharp and effective.
Learn to write things down. When you do a proper plan for your life, your life will be well spent.
Finally, every second matters. Plan your life. Planning is very important. When you plan you maximise your potentials.
