Be Flexible

Be Flexible

“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord.” Ps 37:23 NKJV

The Psalmist writes, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; for the Lord upholds him with His hand” (vv. 23-24 NKJV). Observe: (1) God delights in the fact that you’re willing to step out in faith and try. (2) He doesn’t guarantee that you won’t stumble, but that ultimately He won’t let you fail. (3) When you feel like you can’t go on, He will uphold and strengthen you. What more could you ask for? Now, God never changes, but life does. So you must be ready to adapt to unforeseen circumstances. Sam Walton, the founder of Walmart, is credited with having been a visionary leader. His dream was to provide value to customers in order to improve their lives. But he was notorious for changing plans and abandoning strategies that didn’t work. Sam’s son Jim Walton admitted, “We all sniggered at some writers who viewed Dad as a grand strategist who intuitively developed complex plans and implemented them with precision. Dad thrived on change, and no decision was ever sacred.” What good is a well-planned strategy if it doesn’t yield good results? To quote Winston Churchill: “However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.” God is more committed to the vision He’s given you than you are. But when He leads you in a new direction, you must be ready to follow Him. Like Israel in the wilderness, when the guiding cloud moved they had to move with it. The same goes for you. So, be flexible.

Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested
to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be
a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83
views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
