Proverbs 21 – God Wins

“There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the Lord. The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the Lord.”

Proverbs‬ ‭21:30-31‬ ‭NIV‬‬

This passage speaks to the amount of planning and preparation we can do for any given task. I’m not sure what you make plans for. I’m working on a sermon series and long term ministry plans. This scripture is a double whammy of reality. All my planning and prep, if it goes against where God wants us to go, will fall on its face. Verse 31 highlights the fact that I’m just a battle horse. I don’t get the victory, I’m a means to an end. I’m glad to be a part of what God is doing.

What have you been working on that God is opening doors and making the path smooth? Perhaps that’s because it was his idea the whole time. You are just working it out.
