Prevailing Purpose

Many are the plans in a man's heart,
but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails.
Proverbs 19:21

I'd like to think that I am pretty wise. I believe that I make good decisions most of the time and I try to think through what I do before I do it. So when I put a plan together to do something, I fully expect it to happen.
Now in actuality, I make many plans that seem to end up in places that I never expected. And because I believe that the Lord is sovereign, I truly believe the last part of this verse..."it is the Lord's purpose that prevails." What that means to me is that even though I may plan for things to go one way, if I am trusting God and seeking His will the end result will ALWAYS be His way. His purpose will always trump my plans. And His purpose is really what I want!
So I keep planning...I keep praying...and I have full assurance that at the end of the day...it is the Lord's purpose that will prevail!
Today, know that all of those plans in your heart are going to be used to provide the energy that you need to get you moving. And as you move, God will allow His prevailing purpose to rule and reign in YOUR life.
