Appetizer: Our Way vs. God's Way

Proverbs 21:2

Every way of a man is right in his own eyes,
but the Lord weighs the heart.

Proverbs 21:2  
We think our "way" is what's important, but God thinks the heart is what's important.

Proverbs 21:29-31

A wicked man puts on a bold face,
but the upright gives thought to his ways.
No wisdom, no understanding, no counsel
can avail against the Lord.
The horse is made ready for the day of battle,
but the victory belongs to the Lord.

Proverbs 21:29-31  
Although the righteous make their plans with much forethought, no plans can succeed if they are against the Lord. God is the one who brings success.

Proverbs 16:1-3

16:1 The plans of the heart belong to man,
but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord.
All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes,
but the Lord weighs the spirit.
Commit your work to the Lord,
and your plans will be established.

Proverbs 16:1-3  
We make our plans, and God tells us whether He approves; He does this partly according to our motives, whether our plans are committed to the Lord or not.

Proverbs 16:9

The heart of man plans his way,
but the Lord establishes his steps.

Proverbs 16:9  
We make the plans, but God makes each step happen.

Proverbs 20:24

A man's steps are from the Lord;
how then can man understand his way?

Proverbs 20:24  
We can't always understand the actions of a man whose steps are directed by God.

Proverbs 19:21

Many are the plans in the mind of a man,
but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.

Proverbs 19:21  
We can plan and plan, but only if our plans are within God's Will do they succeed.

Proverbs 14:12

There is a way that seems right to a man,
but its end is the way to death.

Proverbs 14:12  
The way that looks good to us leads to death.

Proverbs 4:18-19

But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn,
which shines brighter and brighter until full day.
The way of the wicked is like deep darkness;
they do not know over what they stumble.

Proverbs 4:18-19  
The way of the righteous is clear and in full light, but the way of the wicked is dark.

Proverbs 10:29

The way of the Lord is a stronghold to the blameless,
but destruction to evildoers.

Proverbs 10:29  
God's way brings the people of God shelter, but it destroys those who are against God.

Proverbs 11:5

The righteousness of the blameless keeps his way straight,
but the wicked falls by his own wickedness.

Proverbs 11:5  
Our way is made straight (clear to see and easy to follow) by our righteousness.

Psalm 37:23-24

The steps of a man are established by the Lord,
when he delights in his way;
though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong,
for the Lord upholds his hand.

Psalms 37:23-24  
If your way is acceptable to God, He will keep you from falling.

Psalm 25:4-13

Make me to know your ways, O Lord;
teach me your paths.
Lead me in your truth and teach me,
for you are the God of my salvation;
for you I wait all the day long.

Remember your mercy, O Lord, and your steadfast love,
for they have been from of old.
Remember not the sins of my youth or my transgressions;
according to your steadfast love remember me,
for the sake of your goodness, O Lord!

Good and upright is the Lord;
therefore he instructs sinners in the way.
He leads the humble in what is right,
and teaches the humble his way.
All the paths of the Lord are steadfast love and faithfulness,
for those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.

For your name's sake, O Lord,
pardon my guilt, for it is great.
Who is the man who fears the Lord?
Him will he instruct in the way that he should choose.
His soul shall abide in well-being,
and his offspring shall inherit the land.

Psalms 25:4-13  
God Himself teaches us His ways; our ways are rooted in rebellion, but God's ways are loving and faithful; the man who follows God's ways will prosper.

Proverbs 15:9

The way of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord,
but he loves him who pursues righteousness.

Proverbs 15:9  
God detests the way of the wicked; His way is to pursue righteousness.
