Anytime we rush into something without proper planning or insight, we’re setting ourselves up to fail. For many, spontaneity is their way of life, and living by the seat of their pants is a common occurrence. But it tells us here, that misdirected eagerness more than often causes us to fall short of God’s best. In fact, the Hebrew word for “miss the way” in this verse means sin. When we allow ourselves to run ahead of God pell-mell, we’re setting ourselves up for failure…and anytime we rush into something without first seeking Godly insight and wisdom, we’re going to come up short.
