“There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the Lord.”  (Proverbs 21:30, NIV)

A reality check: God is all-powerful.

By our own estimation, we do so many things well; and we begin to think that that is the end of it.  However, when we take God into account, things change.

Proverbs reminds us that our wisdom is no match for God; our insight is not match for God; and all of our plans are no match for God.

We do best to follow His wisdom, knowledge, and planning, lest we come to the end of our course and find embarrassment — rather than accolades — as our reward.

Commit your days and your ways to the Lord, and He will guard your path.  – Luther
