“The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.” Proverbs 16:9 ESV
Man plans his ways but the Lord directs through His sovereign will.
As we make plans for the future it is essential to seek the direction the Lord is leading. As the Lord directs so should we step in order to assure our way will be prosperous and successful. Our plans will fall short if they are not in step with God’s direction. Jesus said:
If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. John 15:7
The success of our steps and the answer to our prayers rest in the closeness we are to Christ. As we abide in Christ we are able to know his sovereign will and we are able to step accordingly.
Lord in the planning of my day may I seek you and listen for your direction.
