Who among you fears the LORD and obeys the word of his servant? Let the one who walks in the dark, who has no light, trust in the name of the LORD and rely on their God. But now, all you who light fires and provide yourselves with flaming torches, go, walk in the light of your fires and of the torches you have set ablaze. This is what you shall receive from my hand: You will lie down in torment. (Isaiah 50:10-11 NIV)
How many times do we make our own plans, walk the path we designed and get stuck? It gets dark and scary. Then we run to God. What we should do is trust that God has THE plan – a plan that is the BEST plan for us. Go to God first.
