Plans of the heart

March 16, 2018
The plans of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the LORD.  -PROVERBS 16:1
Sometimes we write plans on our heart tablets. “Plans” are the arrangements and preparations to carry out some desire. The evil heart is full of schematics on how to execute seductions. 

But methods of blessing are in the plans written out on the hearts of those who love God. “A plan in the heart of a man is like deep water, but a man of understanding draws it out” (Proverbs 20:5 NASB). Others are refreshed by the plans in the heart of those who follow God.  You can make the heart encyclopedic with dreams and schemes, but God alone knows the outcome. Write your plans of goodness on your heart, but submit even those for God’s editing and revision.

Consider aspirations and plans that fill your thoughts and ask God to change them to conform to His will for you.
