Daily plans!

October 19, 2010

What are the chances of today turning out just the way you planned? Better yet what are the
chances of today not turning out the way you planned? Are you prepared for the deviation? Do this.
Determine to do all you can to be all you can for God and then any deviation probably won’t turn out to
be disaster. Man_Up and be the man God wants for you to be.
The term Man_Up is simply a reference to the act of becoming the person God wants you to be
and voluntarily, because of a sovereign decision, choosing to cooperate in the processes necessary for
that transformation to be completed. To Man_Up is to intentionally place ourselves in God’s plan for
our lives and to be subjected to His dealing with us as sons so that we may make it through on the other
side the man He wants us to be.
I will say that sometimes that process may not be an enjoyable one. I probably should say that
only after the pains of the struggles are over and the rewards are being admired will it be enjoyable. No
hardship for an extended period of time is enjoyable. We don’t need to confuse ourselves by trying to
convince one another that it is. Sometimes it will seem as a testing of our level of tolerance for there will
not appear to be any understandable or explainable reason for the pain. There are some things that are
supposed to hurt. If they don’t there is something wrong. We must learn to see through the pain. We
must have vision enough to look past the circumstances. We could probably agree that Jesus was going
through a tough situation the last week of His life here. In the garden He cried, “if it be possible let this
cup pass from me.” On the cross He cried, “why hast thou forsaken me.” However He finished both by
giving Himself over to God.
In the garden – “not my will by yours”
On the cross – “into thy hands I commend my spirit”
Give yourself to God.
Allow Him total control.
