When I was about 10 years old, I decided it would be a good thing to have a slumber party one Friday night.
I invited about 10 of my school pals, and their moms dropped them off at our house, sleeping bags in tow, ready for a great time...
But I forgot to ask or even mention it to my parents...
My dad was out of town, and my mom was scheduled to leave for a women's conference where she would be the speaker.
I don't remember what my punishment was, but I do remember that my mom drove every single girl back to their homes, explained to their mother's, and then came home to deal with me!
Have you ever gotten ahead of yourself? or worse... ahead of God?
We can't just decide to 'call a party', and expect Him to bless the whole thing, and to provide for all the details that make a party special... without asking Him first.
He may have some very good reasons for such a party not to happen, one of which might be that He won't be present to host it. (Even though He is with us always, there are times when He is quiet.)
Our bright ideas don't always mean that He will go along with us. He might even like the idea, but wants it to be at another time. Or... He might know that the whole idea is just wrong for us.
When HE calls the party, it is always right.
"Mortals make elaborate plans, but God has the last word." (Prov.16:1)
