“I reject your proposal. I don’t want to not make plans with you. I want to make plans with you.”
Declan (Matthew Goode)
Leap Year (2010)
How many times do we offer our own proposal to the Lord, hoping He will accept it and maybe even bless it? We offer Him what we want to do, what we think is best or good, and rarely ask Him what He wants. Christ lived by the Father’s plans, and for those who are in Christ, we now live by Christ’s plans. If we’ll take the time to ask Him what He wants, He may surprise us. His proposal, His plan, is far better than we could ever dream. He doesn’t want to not make plans with us; He wants to make plans with us.
