In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps. Proverbs 16:9 NIV
God has a greater purpose and if we trust him and not fear his decisions we might find ourselves doing things which would seem impossible. My goal from college was to complete graduate school and work to earn the designation of CHA or certified hotel administrator. I would travel the world and manage some great hotels. And then God showed up one year after college and I knew I needed to be doing something for him.
The fear of God changing my plans kept me arguing with him for three years. In four weeks I will have the chance to do something I never thought possible–pray before the West Virginia Senate. Fear has a way of keeping us from great opportunities. Heroism is not about extraordinary men and women doing heroic things but ordinary men and women doing their best in the face of great obstacles.
Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.Proverbs 19:21 NIV
