James 4: 13-15 “Look here, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we are going to a certain town and will stay there a year. We will do business there and make a profit.” 14 How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone. 15 What you ought to say is, “If the Lord wants us to, we will live and do this or that.” For me, it is easy to fall into the trap of trying to control and plan what surf trips I do, what contests I enter, or even what I am doing day to day. I am challenged by this verse not to pray for GOD to help ME accomplish MY goals, but rather to pray that GOD would use ME to accomplish HIS goals. Praying not my will but YOUR will be done God.
