Plan Prayerfully

What a better way to start the year than to be on the way to cleaning up personal debt. If you are like most people, you probably have a desire to make your life better this year. Perhaps you even clarified your life purpose before 2008 ended so that you would be reminded of what really mattered to you as 2009 begins. Or, probably, you have set goals in different areas of your lives, including the area of debt settlement.

A way to reach this goals is through prayerful planning. The Bible says in Proverbs 16:9, “in his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.” It is very important to seek guidance from God as we make plans for the year.

The best way is to seek what God is already doing and blessing and to join Him. This requires being sensitive to God’s leading which is confirmed by the peace that His Holy Spirit provides. This guidance is available to those who have a personal relationship with Him. Thos who have the Holy Spirit can be assured of His guidance in every area. Even in financial matters like deciding on a loan modification, He can be counted on.

Start seeking God and ask his guidance. You won’t regret it.
