My answer to that question, would be “which life”? I know, I’m comical like that, so pardon me. Where this carnal life is concerned, I ALWAYS plan to keep my relationship with the Father like a hand in a glove. But that’s just me. I have children so I need to plan for their events scheduled for school, Dr visits and vacations of course. Some kind of planning is required most definitely. We can’t get away from it.
In the scriptures, God states LOUD and CLEAR his planning for his chosen people of Israel (The House of Jacob). One of the verses (because there are many!)
Haggai 2:21-23 KJV
Speak to Zerrubbabel, governor of Judah (Judah is one of the 12 tribes of Israel – God’s chosen people), saying I will shake the heavens and the earth.
And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms of the heathen (people who DO NOT adhere to adhere to the Word or God); and I will overthrow their chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother.
In that day saith the Lord of host Zerubabbel my servant, the son of Shealtiel, saith the Lord, and will make thee as a Signet: for I have chosen thee, said the Lord of hosts.
Scary verses, right? I know, I wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end of that planned event. In every scripture where a future prophetic event is to take place, The Father states all his planned scheduled events for us to become aware. Whether we choose to listen and live accordingly or continue to exist. The choice at the end of the day is ours to make.
So my advice would be do as the Father does, and plan and schedule your life according to the order of your walk. Always consider asking in fellowship from the Father for guidance in your planning also, doesn’t hurt!
Only existing in this world is a waste of time and your life expectancy in the new earth, well you get the drift.
