Most of the time it’s good to have a plan. If you’re starting a church, or beginning an exercise program, or moving into a new career you should probably have a plan. You should know how much it’s going to cost, how long it will take, who will help you accomplish it, and what the end result will be. It’s important to set your agenda.
But there are times when you’re better off not having an agenda. Partnering with God is one of those times.
A critical component of discerning what God is up to in our world involves letting go of our own plans and agendas in order to be open to whatever God might want to reveal.
