Plan vs. Purpose

Today’s verse – Proverbs 16:9.
‘In their hearts humans plan their course,
but the Lord establishes their steps.’

Amen! If I hadn’t grasped this by now – I would be a wreck.

There’s only so much we can plan, prepare, or control. Without asking God for direction, it can get pretty dicey.

This past week I prayed, ‘Lord, show me your will. Prepare me.’

And not 10 minutes later, something changed drastically in my life. This ‘thing’ that changed could have been devastating in normal circumstances – but a peace washed over me. It was a direct answer to prayer.

Instead of getting upset – I embraced the change, anxious to see what he was preparing.

I can’t control my life. I can’t prepare for every outcome. I can only give God each day and look to Him for direction, as I go about it.

It’s okay to have a plan – but look to Him for your purpose!!
