God Is A Long-Range Planner

I am not an incredibly organized person. However, in my quiet time yesterday I encountered Psalm 139:16:

In your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for
me, when as yet there were none of them.

This passage served two purposes for me.
  1. I was encouraged as I was reminded that nothing will happen to me that God does not know about or that God did not plan. God has my every hour and moment in his total control and I can rest confident in the good plans of my God (Romans 8:28)
  2. It occurred to me that if God plans my days and I am called to be like him, then I too should plan my days. Not only will I get more accomplished as I'm more organized, but I will be more like God as I'm planning my days.

Ooh. That's a tough lesson for a procrastinator like me, but a good one. I'm struggling to schedule my summer so I don't waste so much time doing...nothing. Now I have the motivation to do as I strive to be more like God. Thanks.
