As we contemplate and consider, I can’t escape from Proverbs 16:9
The mind of man plans his way,
But the LORD directs his steps.
We often think we’re in control. We plan and make decisions. We plot and plan. When in all reality, it is ultimately God who directs our every step. He knew (from the foundations of the earth) the decisions we would face tonight and every night. He knew our hearts, our moments of confusion, our doubts, and our faith. He knows our steps.
Rather than feeling like I’m missing out because I’m not in control, I’m taking comfort. Whatever path we take, He has already plotted out our steps.
