The wise man looks ahead

PlanMany people in life start out well, but they end up going poorly because they don’t plan for the pitfalls.

But the Bible says the wise man looks ahead.

We all face pitfalls as we make plans for our future, such as cultural distractions, voices of doubt, tempting shortcuts, and discouraging delays.

Just take a look at Noah. He had pitfalls after God told him to build the ark, but he overcame them — and you can, too.

Now, this doesn’t mean God will give you the goal of building an ark, but I pray he’ll give you a big goal for your next needed years.

Wise manThe Bible says we’re wise to look ahead and make plans.

By doing that, we’ll not only be prepared to spot the pitfalls when they come into our lives; we’ll also be prepared to apply the antidote to the pitfalls of life.

As the Bible says, only the fool fails to look ahead.

Ask God to help you establish goals for the next decade of your life.

Then you’ll be ready to learn how to handle the pitfalls that could potentially keep you from getting where God wants you to go.
