Want to Make God Laugh…Make a Plan

“We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps.” (Proverbs 16:9)

This idea of God guiding “our steps” has always baffled me a bit.  I’m down here on earth, and He is up there in heaven, right, so how can God be in control of what I do?

It is true that we have free will, and the ability to make our own choices.  But I saw first hand last week, how an unexpected turn of events can change the course of our plans.  A small crisis that had me saying, “God, why did this have to happen?  I do not need to deal with this right now!”, turned into something positive.  I had to change all of my plans, but in hindsight, I could see how all of God’s plans in this situation prevailed.  Minor tragedy turned into blessing!

So I guess I learned the meaning of the saying “a blessing in disguise“, and that no matter what we have planned, God’s purpose always prevails…..“No human wisdom or understanding or plan can stand against the LORD.” (Proverbs 21:30)
