Scattered Abroad

They said, “Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven, and let us make for ourselves a name, otherwise we will be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.” — Genesis 11:4

So the Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of the whole earth; and they stopped building the city. — Genesis 11:8

Ironic isn’t it that God has a plan but we always think that our plan is better. God has a purpose and it will come about.

How much time do you take in seeking the Lord’s counsel before you “do” for the Lord? I’m not talking about the daily service to our brothers and sisters which comes as part of our daily walk but about that “grandiose” thing “we” want to do for the Lord. We would save so much time and trouble if only we would seek His counsel before we start a project in His name.

Continually seeking Him,
