Daily Verse: “The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.” Prov. 16:9
Sovereignty of God.
When does anything ever go exactly as we plan it? Ask any bride on her wedding day; she will tell you what went wrong because something always does. But often, the things that don’t go the way we want bring chuckles and good memories later.
Praying over my week; I had a conflict, booking two appointments back-to-back, leaving no travel time to the second meeting. The only solution I could see meant leaving fifteen minutes early from my hair appointment to reach my following commitment on time.
What a surprise when I received a text from my hair stylist that she had double booked. Could I come at 11:15 instead? Why yes, I could. “Perfect,” I responded. God took care of the conflict by moving my first appointment and including travel time—something I couldn’t have done alone.
Trusting God to establish our steps clears our paths, resolves conflicts, and helps us keep the divine appointments He has for us. Next time things don’t go as planned, trust God’s purpose to unfold. The Lord’s sovereignty always rules.
Lord, forgive us for getting irritated at schedule changes. Help us remember; You direct our steps. Take us where you want us to go, and don’t let us miss any divine appointments you have for us. Let us live out our purpose one step at a time. IJNIP. Amen
