PROVERBS 16:9 – His Plans or My Plans

16 Nov

SCRIPTURE:

 Blog - Proverbs 169

OBSERVATION:  Every day we make plans and choices and they determine our destiny.  We make choices of who we are going to marry, where we are going to live, having children or not, jobs, schools, where we are going to go etc..    How often do we plan and plan and those to-do lists grow and grow because God has a different course and “stuff” happens – good “stuff” and bad “stuff”. Sometimes we make plans and our plans fail, but guess what sometimes those plans fail and you will gain the greatest blessing of your life.

Read about my trust fund babies and how God took those failed plans and gave me the greatest blessings of my life here.

APPLICATION:  Sometimes I want this or I want that, but only God knows what is best for me.  My plans are not necessarily God’s plans.  What is His will, what is His plan?  I have to spend time with Him in prayer, daily trusting Him to show me His will.

Blog - Proverbs 163

KNEEL IN PRAYER:  Father thank You that You know how to work through our mistakes if we trust in You.  Thank You for being in my midst when I pray about my plans and decisions.   Show me the steps I need to take Father. and Father when I am about to make a mistake please slam that door.  Amen.

    I love this reminder. When we seek to align our lives with His plans our desires change to focus on Him. He then grants us the desire of our hearts. Thanks for sharing.

    This is one of my favorite, yet most convicting proverbs. Thanks for elaborating on it here today.
