Working towards Perfection

Without prayer, the plans are bound to fail, the preparation will fall short, and the performance will not maximize the resources.  Start with prayer.

Prayer
1 Chronicles 4:9-10

Plan
Proverbs 16:3, 9

Prepare
Luke 14:28-33

Perform
James 1:22

Perfect
Matthew 5:48

Your praying should start before you get started planning.  We are advised to pray without ceasing.  We are to pray about everything, being thankful and watchful.  Our prayer time should lead us to a phase of planning that opens our hearts and minds to all that God wants us to accomplish in His name and for His glory. 

Pray for God to reveal ideas to you.  Pray for Him to confirm what you are endeavoring to do.  Pray for discernment to recognize where not to go.  Pray for the strength to boldly stand on the promises of God in spite of what others may have to say to you or about you.

If you are planning, you ought to be praying.  Planning and preparing should lead to performing.  Once you have performed, you need to perfect.  Let Christ be your goal of perfection.  As you perfect your plans and performance, let the Lord perfect you to be more like Christ.  Become what He has called you to be in His name.

He has a perfect plan.  Let Him reveal it to you and see where you fit into His plan.
