The spirituality of detailed planning

Does planning imply a lack of trust? If we work out all the details, where is our faith in God? Is it impossible to do a detailed planning and have faith?

While Moses was on the mountain for 40 days, God was giving him detailed plans for the tabernacle where God would come and dwell with the people (Exo 26:30). God wanted to ensure that Moses would erect the tabernacle according to his plan.

But will God come? Will he show up and do all that he promised? That’s faith. It was Moses’ job to work out the details according to the plan.

So go ahead and plan out the details of the worship service, small group, youth gathering, children’s programs and all that you do for the Kingdom. Then have faith that God will show up. He promised. He will.
