God is strategic.

He has a plan laid out for your life that encompasses even the tiniest of details.

He is not vague or approximate. He does not waffle or wane.

He is orchestrating every note of your symphony. Every word of your story. Every brush stroke of your masterpiece.

Very often, we’re not strategic at all.

We improvise. We wander. We scribble.

Not always. But certainly not never.

There are plenty of times each of us makes a choice without considering that choice whatsoever. Getting carried along in life like a dandelion tuft in the breeze.

But God doesn’t do that for ANYTHING, much less you and me:
For the Lord sees clearly what a man does, examining every path he takes.
Proverbs 5:21 NLT

This is the verse that rattled around in my head today. This is the verse that caught my attention in our Five-Day Challenge.

The Lord examines every path I take. Every choice I make. He clearly sees everything I do.

And also with you.

Today, slow down and greet your choices. Meet with them and consider them. Don’t merely assume them. Define your strategy. And CHOOSE.

And let those choices reflect Almighty God who lives within you.

That’s worship.
