Proverbs 16:1 The plans of the heart belong to man, but the reply of the tongue is from YHVH.
Proverbs 16:9 A man’s heart plans his course, but YHVH determines his steps.
Proverbs 19:21 Many plans are in a man’s heart, but the purpose of YHVH will prevail.
Proverbs 20:24 A man’s steps are from YHVH, so how can anyone understand his own way?
Jeremiah 10:23 I know, O YHVH, that a man’s way is not his own; no one who walks directs his own steps.
Order my steps according to Your word,
and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.
Deliver me from the oppression of man,
so I will keep Your precepts.
Make Your face to shine upon Your servant,
and teach me Your statutes.
OK, I think I get it. Yah wants to come along as we walk the path to Him that He has laid. Although we may desire to be willing “vessels… fit for the Master’s use.” [2 Timothy 2:21], our mission is to become like Christ so we can rule alongside Him [2 Timothy 2:12, 1 Corinthians 6:3, Revelation 3:21], meaning we have to make decisions through reasoning under His influence.
2 Timothy 2:15 (NKJV) Be diligent [practice eagerly] to present yourself approved to Yah, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Ephesians 1:13-14 (ESV) In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in Him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of His glory.
James 1:21 Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and every expression of evil, and humbly receive the word planted in you, which can save your souls.
Reasoning correctly is a practice; He promised to help us achieve it and give grace when we make a mistake.
