“In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.”
- Proverbs 16:9
Some days the wheels just fall off our best laid plans.
A great reminder this morning to all of us who like to plan (and think our plans are the best). Sometimes our human plans just do not work out the way we want or expect them to.
No matter what though, we can look to God’s word. We know His plans are set for us and have been written for us(Psalm 139:16). His plans for us are for good and for not evil(Jeremiah 29:11). All things work together for good for those who believe in Him(Romans 8:28).
So let us strive to seek His plans for us. Not to say we don’t set our schedules in the world, but let us ask what His will for us is, in big things and small. When our plans match His because of this, he will do incredible things through us!
