Proverbs 16:9 – In their hearts humans plan their course

Posted: 13 Apr 2019 09:15 PM PDT
In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.
– Proverbs 16:9 (NIV)
Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Author of Making Sense of the Bible
What a mystery this proverbs presents to us: as much as we plan, it is ultimately the Lord who determines our steps. But what a brilliant mystery! We are responsible to choose our course, and yet the Lord takes those choices and uses them for His glory. This should sober us in choosing wisely today, yet relieve us that God is ultimately in control. The Scripture presents a picture of our responsibility AND God’s sovereignty. This is a work of wonder, which fills the heart with awe.
