The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the Lord.
Proverbs 21:31 NIV
We can and should be diligent, but give our plans to the Lord and trust Him, for victory or defeat rest with Him. See also Proverbs 19:21 and 21:1.
Seek the Lord and His plans, get wise advice, and move forward diligently, trusting the Lord God for the outcome.
Lord, I trust You. I seek to come alongside Your plans rather than forge my own path down a road where You are no longer with me. Keep me close to You, and correct me when I veer off course. Please grant me wisdom and discernment to choose wisely. I love you!
