The Daily Nosh – Proverbs 19:21
Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but the counsel of Adonai (the Lord) will stand. (TLV) Proverbs 19:21
Nosh: We have only one life to live, and none of us knows how long it will be. Yet we desire our life to be full, meaningful, and successful. This verse reveals that the secret to achieving this ambition is to discover God’s purpose and plan for our life. From the second we take our first breath, our Creator has planned for us a unique and purposeful life more meaningful and fulfilling than we can imagine. The caveat is that we must choose His plan and humbly seek it out rather than live a self-directed, self-reliant life. I guarantee that no matter how successful and satisfying you may feel your self-directed life is, His plan is better and more satisfying. Importantly, it is never too late to seek the purposeful plan He has prepared for each of us.
