“We can make our own plans but the Lord gives the right answer.” -Proverbs 16:1
Have you ever been in a situation that you just knew you had in the bag? To my females does this sound familiar: “Giiirrrlll! Daymon looking at me with that look! I know he mine!” What about my guys: “Um um um Sue know she bad! That’s bae right there!” All to find out that Daymon wasn’t looking at the girl and Sue could careless about Daymon. Alright so what if your situation wasn’t focused on relationship statuses, but a new job, a prestigious award, an acceptance letter to a new school, an organization, sorority or fraternity, nevertheless it never worked out. Well my friends I’m here to tell you that God is in charge of it all. We might make plans or come up with a list of things we want to take place in our lives, but unless it is God driven it’s not going to happen. However, my friends NEVER give up because as Christian rapper Da T.R.U.T.H says, “In Jesus we got that hope!”
“Commit your actions to the Lord and your plans will succeed.”-Proverbs 16:3
By crying out to the Lord and giving Him your heart’s desire YOU WILL SUCCEED — but do know it more than likely won’t be on the time you have set on your Google calendar. It will be the time God has for you and trust God’s timing is the best, even though it doesn’t seem like it sometimes.
“We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps”-Proverbs 16:9
Every step and move you make God knows about it and is aware of what you are trying to do. Remember, He created you so He knows what is best for you. This is exactly why He determines our steps to lead us in the right path. You might want to move forward, but maybe God wants you to stay were you are until He knows you are ready to proceed. For example, after I graduated from college, I wanted to move to New York and start my career as a professional journalist. Instead, after college, I found myself back in Atlanta job hunting. Not much of a big break huh? But, am I worried? Not at all because I know God has a plan solely for me. So instead of moping around I get up every morning to seek, search and ask God what is next on my agenda.
So my friends just remember that God is the decision maker in your life and He knows what’s best. You might have that professor who you just can’t stand, but you never know that professor could be the person you have to create a mutual relationship with because you need the “A” or “B” to graduate. You might be in a situation similar to mine and don’t know what to do, but hear me when I say give it to God and He’ll lead the way because He has a path set just for you.
“We may throw the dice but the Lord determines how they fall.”- Proverbs 16:33
