Our text is from James 4:15.— For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.
You know that many times we all are guilty of getting up in the morning and going out the door hoping to have a good day and never asking God to bless our day or even give us protection. What do we expect if God is not invited along with us? Don’t you want Him to bless your day? Shouldn’t God be in the equation? I mean, it’s you, your plans, and what is missing? The Lord of course. He completes the problem.
Do you really think that makes the Lord happy when He is uninvited? If you were hoping to be invited to some kind of important event and were not invited, how would that make you feel.? Well, how do you think the Lord feels when He is not invited to what you are involved in? After He has done so much for you, and you won’t invite Him to go with you throughout your day. What’s the problem? Is it sin? Or is it forgetfulness? What is the problem?
Remember: The Lord + You + Your plans = Blessing
This is the successful formula and the complete equation.
The answer to your problem.
