One of my favorite verses is “We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.” Proverbs 16:9 NLT. During a time where I had no idea what my career was going to be, I clung onto this verse. I had to give my complete trust over to God. I had to trust that he was going to lead me in the right direction.
Then I recently read this verse again “Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed.” Proverbs 16:3 NLT. If we make a plan and immediately give it to God, he will lead us onto the right path. We will succeed because we will be living in God’s perfect will for our lives. Which is why we don’t need to worry about anything.
I don’t know about you but that relieves so much stress in my life. I don’t have to worry about making one wrong decision and messing up my life forever. God has the perfect plan already figured out, we just have to commit all of our plans to him and walk in faith. Even when things don’t make sense, we only see a small portion of what God is doing in our entire life.
This is your reminder to not stress about anything, but trust that God is guiding your steps.
