Proverb for the Day 16:9 — The Bestest Ever Plan!

In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.

It’s a basic part of our nature that, “in their hearts humans plan their course.” To have a sense of order or a plan for what’s coming is important to us all.
Yet, it’s also true that some have given up hope to ever have a plan, again. But the good news in this verse is that there is a God who “establishes their steps.” 
He, above all, has the power and desire to hook us up with our plan and, maybe even better, the best plan. The real issue then is, how do I connect with this plan?
As the verse suggests, we have ideas. But all we know how hard it is to get from the plan in my heart to any sense of reality in my life!
There’s a pretty famous promise in the Bible: “For I know the plans I have planned for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a future and a hope” (Jeremiah 29:11).
It suggests He’s made a plan for us that is still current and in-force today – in spite of all the things we have done! This plan is absolutely for our good and offers us a genuinely hopeful future.

We can make all the plans we want, it’s just so hard to actually make them happen! But He has the best plan for us ever!

I just need to realize that I can’t do it on my own, but He can! Then I really need to let Him do for me what I know I just can’t do for myself.
