One thing that is very obvious from watching sheep is that sheep desire to be in a flock – to be a part of the group or their community. Sheep do not want to be alone, or by themselves.

We try and map out our plan for life, where we will live, what we will do, and so forth. But how many times do we take the extra time to pray to God for guidance and wisdom in these plan makings? We may often think that our plans line up with the Lord’s, but that’s not always the case. Sometimes, God’s plan is different. The plans that we make don’t always work out in the way we imagined. God has something better. His plan is always better for us, greater than anything we could ever come up with.
As you make your plans for life, take time to discuss it with the Lord. It may be that your small plan lines up with what the Lord has in mind, but if not, then be encouraged knowing that His plan is so much better.
The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps.Proverbs 16:9
