Verse of the Day, January 8, 2020
Proverbs 16:9 KJV “A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps.”
This is a favorite; the man’s heart or mind may sit down and devise or plan out his way. He can set goals, objectives, strategies and such, however, at the end of the day, it will be the LORD who directs his steps.
The LORD will direct his actions, his course, where and how he goes. Does this mean we are not in control?
It means we may desire to become a lawyer, dentist, or mechanic; the way we get there may not look like what “we” drew on paper (or in our minds). It will be the way the LORD Almighty drew it up for us!
Which in all respects is the greater way!
Praise the Almighty today!
