As we get ready to step into a new year - a Leap Year for that matter, "Who knows what the year will bring?" may be a question in your head and heart and rightly so.
I say so from my interesting experience this year. Which made these verses very real -
Proverbs 16:9 - We plan the way we want to live, but only God makes us able to live it. (MSG)
Proverbs 20: 24 - The very steps we take come from God;
otherwise how would we know where we’re going? (MSG)
Let me back up a bit.
Every year, the Lord gives me a Word...which a call my WAY (Word-A-Year). This year it was Genesis 26:22:
Isaac moved from there and dug another well. No one came to argue about this well. So Isaac named it Rehoboth. He said, “Now the Lord has found a place for us. We will grow and be successful in this place.” (ERV)
* Isaiah 46:10 - NLT
** God says, “Be still and know that I am God. I will be praised [exalted] in all the nations; I will be praised [exalted] throughout the earth.” (Psalm 46:10 - NLT)
*** Proverbs 3:5-6 - Trust the Lord with all your heart, and don’t depend [rely] on your own understanding. 6 Remember the Lord [Know him] in all you do [on all your paths], and he will give you success [keep your roads straight]. (EXB)
