Just about everybody knows what blueprints are.
They give us direction. They layout our plans for building whatever it is we want to build. They enable us to have a detailed outline or plan of action. In one word, blueprints are: necessary. Without them it would be almost impossible to build a sound, solid, reliable structure that makes sense. Without them we would be virtually incapable of following a trusted process.
Could you imagine going through life without a blueprint? To do so with be a life without God guiding us. It would be a life of wandering from here to there with no direction, no plans, and not an iota of where the Lord is guiding us. We wouldn't have a clue. Such, would be a life of ho-hum no matter how happy and secure we seemed. Why wouldn't we want to know the direction of the path the Lord is leading us? In Psalm 25:4/5 David said, "make me to know your ways, Oh Lord; teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long."
Clearly David put his trust in the Lord and he desired to follow God's blueprint for his life. David knew he had enemies -- family and friends, yet he never stopped serving and loving the Lord. We can see how blessed he was as a result. Like David (Psalm 23), I rather follow God's blueprint than any other.
