Proverbs 16: My Plans – God’s Steps

We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps

Proverbs 16 is a cautionary tale of how our plans may not always coincide with the Lord’s. In life, we tend to get ahead of ourselves by overplanning and taking ownership of what belongs to God. With this mindset, pride and self-importance can creep in, and lead to  our downfall, as seen with the foolish.

The Lord cherishes honesty. He loves those who seek deep knowledge and understanding; these are fruits of the wise.

It’s so easy to get caught up in our own plans, that we forget to honor the Lord. How many times have you planned and strategized over something only to have the script overturned in the twinkling of an eye?
