Scripture :

“The heart of a man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.” – Proverbs 16:9

Observation :

Ultimately God is sovereign. Much of Proverbs 16 looks at the differences between man and God. This verse perfectly represents that by showing that no matter what plans a person may make it is ultimately the Lord’s plan that will prevail.

Application :

How often do we spend time worrying about the future? We can obsess over planning and tiny details but the truth is that it is all in God’s hands. Today, I want to worry less about my plans and focus on drawing closer to God and knowing that He has it all under control.

Prayer :

Thank You Lord that Your plans are good and You are sovereign. Help me today to draw near to you and not be so concerened with my own plans.
