A man’s heart plans his way,
But the Lord directs his steps. Proverbs 16:9 NKJV
We were not meant to run our own lives. As much as we want this to be true; it is not. Society and our flesh drive us to be independent from everyone; even God. But that’s just not how God operates. He created us to be in an intimate relationship with Him. In that relationship God wants us to depend on Him for everything. Even our plans must be submitted to Jesus.
Do you have plans you want to accomplish? Hand them over to the Lord. He knows more than you do. God sees and knows everything taking place in the world right now. Therefore He knows what the best way is to reach your goal. What seems like a hindrance or a rejection may just be God blocking you from failure. When you don’t understand remember that God does. Let Christ direct your steps!
