Proverbs Challenge, Day 16


“ A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.

The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord.”

This 16th chapter of Proverbs has several bits of wisdom that are certainly worth noting.  A fairly well-known thought is found in verse 25 which tells us that “there is way which seems right to man but its end is death”.  The recurring theme that came to my mind as I studied Proverbs 16 is the sovereignty of God.  Along with verse 25, consider the two statements at the beginning of today’s blog.  In both, we see that the Lord rules.  His direction determines our path and His decision determines the outcome of casting lots.  Since the Lord is in charge, doesn’t it make sense to live in agreement with Him?
