Trust God’s Plan

Proverbs 19:21 AMP
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

Psalm 33:10-11 AMP
The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nought; He makes the thoughts and plans of the peoples of no effect. 11 The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the thoughts of His heart through all generations.

We can plan and set goals but it is the Lord who has the final say. When our plans seem not to work out or we can’t understand our circumstances, rather than get frustrated => TRUST HIM. Acknowledge that His way is good and best.

When you can’t see God’s hand
Trust His heart and seek His face
He is faithful and cannot fail
His plans are good and always prevail.

 

Lord thank You that Your plans are perfect and cannot fail. Help me trust You and seek Your face, when I find myself midst circumstances I don’t understand.

When we can’t see God’s hand, we can trust His heart.

ODB:

When things don’t seem to go your way
And all your efforts can’t prevail,
It’s time to turn to God and pray—
His way is right, He cannot fail. —Hess

    @lafayettescales: When something doesn’t work out your way, it doesn’t mean God has failed you. It means He’s planning something better.

    @lafayettescales: Know this: Your plans may not work out, but God is still on the throne, and if He is for you, who dare be against you?
