"I love it when a plan comes together!"

One of my favorite television shows to watch when I was growing up was the A-Team. This band of misfit Army Rangers went around the country doing good deeds to help out those in need. For a kid in the 80's, the only show any better than the A-Team was MacGyver. You could always count on three things in every episode of the A-Team. First, a vehicle of some sort would end up flipping during a chase scene. Second, there would literally be thousands of bullets shot and usually not a single person would be injured. Thirdly, Colonel Hannibal Smith would always light a cigar, when all was said and done, and say “I love it when a plan comes together!” He always had a plan, executed it precisely and then reveled in the fact that it had successfully been completed.

When we start down the path that allows us to follow God, we should quickly learn that God has a plan for our life. Jeremiah 29:11 starts off by saying "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord," (NIV). God has an individual plan for each of us. It's our responsibility as His children to seek out that plan. His plan for each of us isn't some mediocre, run-of-the-mill plan to just get us through this life. God’s plan for our life is one that is far superior to any plan we could ever come up with on our own. His plan helps us avoid the things in this life that will destroy us but also gives us the things in this life that are for our good. When we consider the fact that God, who loved us enough to send His Son to die for us, has a plan for us to follow, then we should pursue it. We should take care to make sure we execute His plan precisely and then give Him the glory when it succeeds. Because in the end, it is His plan that is being accomplished by His child, for His glory.
