Proverbs The Wisdom Of God 6

Proverbs 19:21 Many are the plans in a mans heart; but it is the Lords purpose that prevails  [.NIV]

This is one of the most loaded scpriptures in proverbs. Oh how true it is. Sometimes it takes years to sort through while plan after plan ebbs away and comes to nothing. For some it seems they discover
Gods purpose more quickly and easily than others. Of course everything is dependent on the persons make up and what Gods purpose is for them. God uses every trial and problem that person has ever been through to mold them and incorporates it in his plan for them.This is the key word in this verse. { His Plan ] We as humans all to often make our plans and then ask God to bless them and wonder why they never worked. I have been through this many times. I would never of thought my life would go in the direction it has, for I had many plans that just never culminated. Did I mean well ? Most certainly I did, but well meaning or not, the fact remains, my plans were not on Gods agenda. If the Lord has a plan or purpose in a particular thing , no amount of praying ,crying , believing or otherwise will change it. Can you imagine a man trying to change Gods plan to stop the flood with Noah ? Won't happen, didn' happen and Gods plan prevailed. In a general sense, this world is headed for destruction and will eventually culminate at the battle of armagedden and no angel, devil, or man will stop it. As I said earlier, this scripture is loaded with myriads of information and we just touched on a little basic point.
So where does this leave us? We simply sharpen our skills and talents as best we can and yield them to the Lord for the results, or we can go our own way and eventually our own way will not prevail.
May God bless you as you seek him for his plans in your life!
