God’s Plan Prevails

Proverbs 19:21 AMP
21 Many plans are in a man’s mind, but it is the Lord’s purpose for him that will stand.

From NetBible Prov 19:21

Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.

  • Many plans are in the human heart/mind/reasoning BUT only those which God approves will succeed.
  • The point of the proverb is that the human being with many plans is uncertain, but the Lord with a sure plan/purpose gives correct counsel

 

1 Samuel 2:9 AMP
9 He will guard the feet of His godly ones, but the wicked shall be silenced and perish in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail.

From NetBible 1Sam 2:9

  • guard[08104] = keep, protect, watch over
  • strength[03581] = human power, might
  • prevail[01396] = be strong, be powerful, be mighty, be great
Psalm 40:11 AMP
11 Withhold not Your tender mercy from me, O Lord; let Your loving-kindness and Your truth continually preserve me!Thank You that it’s Your hand{strength} that preserves me and helps me to follow Your lead.
