Scripture of the Day - January 24, 2012

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

I read this proverb on the bottom of a note pad that I have and it just hit me like a tonne of bricks. We can conjure up so many ideas in our minds that are far from the will of God but we have ourselves convinced that we are right and we push on, insisting on our will being done. Our perceptions are often skewed therefore we can't see straight and we end up straying (sometimes crashing) off the path we should be on. We use our own reasoning and understanding which often reflects our perceptions, which are often skewed. Do you see the vicious circle?

It is imperative to rely totally on the Word of God for every aspect of our lives. His ways are far above our ways and ALL His ways are just and perfect. Remember that our carnal nature is enmity with God so we cannot rely on our natural mind to make sense of things. God's laws are supernatural...they are above the natural...they transcend the natural. Often times we have to shut out what our natural mind says makes sense and follow the Word of God in situations, even if if goes against our grain.

Bottom line is...you might as well get with the program because it is God's purpose that prevails not ours.
