Knowing the Lesson Plan

Picture the difficulty a substitute teacher has when enacting an absent teacher’s lesson plans. Without spending a considerable amount of time with the real teacher, a substitute can read the instructions yet end up guessing their way through a lesson plan. The difficulty increases if the class chooses to disrespect the substitute and ignore their attempts to teach the prepared lessons to class. We can struggle enacting the will of someone else because we can’t quite get into their head to know exactly what they were thinking. We can know God’s will better by spending time with him. We can enact his will by trusting him.
