The scripture verse God provided for this week comes from Proverbs 16:1. “To man belong the plans of the heart, but from the LORD comes the reply of the tongue.”
There are so many books for sale for “Dummies.” Everything made easy for dummies. Taken lightly, of course, these are instruction books that provide easy answers and instructions.
God’s Book is filled with answers and instructions for life. For a good life. A rewarding life. And in it He states His promises on which all who believe can stand on a firm foundation.
When I seek comfort, guidance and reassurance, the Bible is where I go to hear God’s answer.
So when we make plans, we should seek God’s will. He will answer, if we “listen.”
Wesley’s notes interpret this verse as: Men can neither speak wisely or well without Divine assistance. We would do well to remember this!
