Commit your works to the LORD and your plans will be established. - Proverbs 16:3

“I believe very profoundly in an over-ruling Providence, and I do not fear that any real plans can be thrown off the track,” said Woodrow Wilson. (1) Works that can be submitted to God have plans that will succeed, even if the planners get it wrong. God sees the final outcome of all things. He allows us the privilege of being “co-laborers” with Him. However, like a master observing an apprentice, He steps in when our plans aren’t aligned with big picture, and puts them right.
