Once you start to plan the work of God in your spiritual life, you have left the Holy Spirit out…
You cannot ‘plan’ the Holy Spirit. He will not fit into any plan. What we fail to realise is that the Lord is not known or served through these methods. He looks upon the heart. He is looking for a ‘heart’ relationship with us. His desire is that we live from our hearts and NOT from what we think a Christian is supposed to do.
Many think that we relate to God from our hearts but we are really working for Him with our own efforts. Jesus said that the works He did were not His works, but rather it was the Father working in Him (see John 14 v 10).
