When a big event occurs, the promoter usually sends out marketing literature that reminds us to “Make Plans to Attend . . ..” Obviously, this is for their benefit and yours. Planning your calendar in advance is a good way to make sure you don’t miss critical activities or events.
What’s this simple observation have to do with my blog? Simply put, I think the Bible is God’s way of telling us to “Make Plans to Attend Heaven.” If you fail to plan accordingly today, there will be no second chance when He comes to get us tomorrow (and that’s a VERY CRITICAL EVENT!).
Make Plans to Attend Heaven today – ask for His forgiveness and receive Jesus in your heart today (click here: http://whativaluemost.com/Discover.aspx) . If you already have Jesus in your life, then take time to talk to Him, I think He misses us when we don’t talk to him. “Pray without ceasing” (1 Thes 5:17).

How does this activity of planning compare with what the Bible teaches? The Bible is VERY clear in James 4:13-17 when it mentions that planning your life is really a waste (my interpretation), because “you do not know what tomorrow will bring” (James 4:14). In Proverbs, we find “the heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps” (Pro. 16:9).
Furthermore, the Bible is also very clear that the LORD plans your ways: “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord” (Jeremiah 29:11a).
So, if an atheist was to employ this Scripture, he may convince a man to stop planning his life, and be more spontaneous. Sounds legitimate and Biblical to me!
So am I here to tell you to forget planning and be spontaneous in 2016? No, absolutely not. Yet, I’m still going to preach by the Word. Proverbs 15:22 states “without counsel plans fail, but with many advisors they succeed.” Psalm 20:4 states “May God give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.”
In today’s world, we are constantly bombarded with worldly views that conflict with Biblical teachings. Sometimes these views utilize pieces and parts of Scripture to convince people that they are “right.” Don’t let yourself be fooled into worldly thinking. Instead . . . observe the world, research the Bible, pray for understanding, and as the 1990’s would say WWJD?
