Asking the Lord to Bless Our Plans

It is so easy to say that we are committed to doing whatever the Lord wants us to do. Then we come to the Lord with a long list of our plans and ask the Lord to bless our plans. I once heard George Murray, a missionary to Italy, ask the crowd “what is your idea of commitment?” Holding out a blank sheet of paper he said “Is it to sign your name at the bottom of this blank sheet, and to let God fill it in as He wills?” (Lou Nicholes - Missionary with Word of Life Fellowship).
