Favorite proverb says God is at work

If I have a favorite, I suppose it’s this rather popular one. “In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.” Proverbs 16:3. It is very easy to be arrogant about our plans. Reminiscent of James 4, we too often make plans without a consideration of the Lord’s involvement.

Here’s the other side of the coin. We do not have to rely solely on our feeble judgments. God is at work determining our steps. That’s reassuring.
