I just finished this great book by Kyle Lake. He's the pastor of University Baptist Church in Waco Texas. His worship leader is David Crowder. Anyway, the idea behind this book is that God has an overall plan for our lives and that He is not into micromanaging. I've heard people say things like, "I was getting ready to go out today and I was asking the Lord if He wanted me to wear a hat." Well, I don't know, maybe it's just me, but I'm pretty sure God doesn't care!! Use your frickin' brain! Is it sunny outside? Would your eyes benefit from the shade offered by a hat? Then WEAR A HAT MORON!!!! Anyway, sorry about that.... This book also spends some time studying the classic scriptures that people quote to say that God does have a specific plan for every minute of your life. For example, Jer 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you....etc." When you look at the context of the scripture God was saying that He knew the long term plans for a whole community of people, not the individual plans for one person's everyday decisions. It's a pretty fascinating book. A very easy read, it's more like you are sharing in a conversation with Kyle than reading something he wrote. I highly recommend. You can get it for less than ten bucks by clicking below. Stop being cheap. Buy it.
