1 Samuel 10.25
Samuel went on to instruct the people in the rules and regulations involved in a kingdom, wrote it all down in a book, and placed it before God.
God, we lay our best plans right down at your feet. thank you for the knowledge and wisdom to prepare for all sorts of things, but we do all this knowing full well that you are the one who makes all things happen, your plans are the best, and we are all but stewards of what you have entrusted to us. thank you for the chance to have this as an act of worship, acknowledging your full worth when we place all our plans before you, when we put you first. thank you that we get to honour you this way, that we get to have you call the shots, that we get to have you plot our direction, deposit in us gifts and talents, surround us with people we could do life with and be generous to, all in your great and infinite wisdom. wow, lord.
