Daily Bible Verse - 9/1/2007 - Proverbs 19:21

NIV Many are the plans in a man's heart,
but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails.
KJV There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand.
NASB Many plans are in a man's heart,
But the counsel of the LORD will stand.
Proverbs 19:21
We can acquire wisdom by our own means, but our wisdom will always be finite compared to the limitless wisdom and power of God. Because God is absolutely right and because He has the necessary power to bring His plans or "counsel" about, He always succeeds. Our "plans" are many and uncertain, and the success of our plans depends on the will of God. Only plans that God approves will succeed (see Ps. 33:10, 11; Prov. 16:9; Is. 14:26, 27).
