SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/26- “‘I Did It My Way!’ Won’t Cut It, And In The End, Doesn’t Work!” (Proverbs 16:9)
Premise Question: Given the vital information contained within this divine word of wisdom, why would anyone, but especially one who is a member of The Company of The Redeemed, ever begin to presume or even attempt to do something on their own, without first consulting with The LORD and then submitting all of their plans to Him, for His wise input and approval?
We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps.
(Proverbs 16:9 NLT)
We all have the ability to create, conceive, formulate and design a scheme and plan of our own and by our own doing. We can draw up blueprints and choose our own course of action, to build, do and accomplish something. But, it is The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty Himself, that directs, settles, determines and controls the degree of success and eventual outcome of our undertaking. (Proverbs 16:9 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Self-determination, self-made, did it my way, all by myself, all on my own, without the help or assistance of anyone or anything else; this attitude, approach, manner and way of doing things is neither prudent nor effective, and certainly is greatly diminished, when one does not utilize divine wisdom, good counsel and common sense.
Papa God’s Word gives us such clear and concise counsel, wisdom and sense, telling us that we can make our own plans, but only He can give us the right answer and result. (Proverbs 16:1) For if we will submit and commit all of our plans to Him, then He will ensure that our plans will succeed. (Proverbs 16:3)
The LORD also tells us, that if He is not part and partial of the entire building process, whatever is being built, then those who are participating in the project are working for nothing, because it will not succeed! (Psalm 127)
So, the obvious and proverbial question is: Why would anyone ever attempt or presume to do anything, without the input, oversight, participation and approval of The LORD? Because, “I did it my way” won’t cut it, and in the end, doesn’t work! Blessings…
