11.16.2010 Proverbs 16:9

Proverbs Post #21-

 Today I was reading in chapter 16, and verse 9 jumped out to me today.  It says:


16:9 A person plans his course,
but the Lord directs his steps.


 “A person plans his course,” because we need to think ahead right?  Yes, we do but the question that always enters my mind is, “Are these your plans or Gods?”

 “But the Lord directs his steps” indicates several things to me and the first of which is, we need to put effort.  If you do not take steps, what will God direct?  The next item is your motives.  Are you seeking personal gain or to  further God’s kingdom?  The last item is from the notes in the Net Bible.  “Only those plans that are approved by God will succeed.”  

 Are you planning for you?

 I want to challenge you to take up reading the Proverb of the day and the entire chapter as well.  Lord, please help each one of us to keep our focus on things above and not the things of this earth.  Amen.

I am using the Net Bible to quote from for these posts.
