Bruce Wilkinson said it this way—
“If we aren’t passionately and deliberately focused on carrying out God’s agenda with God’s heart, we’ll end up putting our own agenda first. We’ll increasingly look for the kind of missions we enjoy most. We’ll tend to ask God to bless our busyness for Him instead of asking Him to send us on the miracle mission of His choice.”
I don’t think the Bible is against To Do lists, but I need to make my lists the right way.
Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” (James 4:15)
Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. (Matthew 6:10)
With those verses in mind, this is what I’m praying:
Dear God, I want to decided right here and now that Your agenda is more important than mine. Not my “To Do” list be done, but Yours. I die to my plans so that I might live out your plans.
I am trying to Live Dead to my agenda this week.
