I’ve Got This Great Idea… Proverb for the Day 19:21

Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails

This is another of those general facts-of-life wise saying of just really good things to know.
“Many are the plans in a person’s heart” — we sure can come up with some great ideas! Of course, in many instances, they seemed like a good idea at the time, but really weren’t.
Yet, other plans were good…but our timing was off…or there was something in the future that we just couldn’t know about that did or could have simply destroyed my great idea.
So, the best plan I could ever have in my heart would actually be God’s plan — because “it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails!”

I’ve never been very good at talking God into doing one of my great ideas. In fact, I’ve pretty much quit trying!

Since He sees what I don’t see…and knows what I don’t know, I really can’t do any better than what He’s got going. And He always knows how to get His plans completed — on time and on budget!
Now the fact is, He may have actually put His plan in my heart some time ago! And I may have already adopted it as my plan — and that’s not a bad thing.

But we just really need to know that all good plans do originate with Him. Consequently, He’s the best One to actually bring it to completion.

While imperfect in implementation, I’ve found the best way to practice this concept in my life is HOW — Honest, Open and Willing…before God…one day at a time!
