Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.
In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.
The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord.
Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.
Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.”
The LORD Almighty has sworn, “Surely, as I have planned, so it will be, and as I have purposed, so it will stand.
