The Message II: God promises to guide you

Proverbs 16:1-9

1 Mortals make elaborate plans,
   but God has the last word.

2 Humans are satisfied with whatever looks good;
   God probes for what is good.

3 Put God in charge of your work,
   then what you’ve planned will take place.

4 God made everything with a place and purpose;
   even the wicked are included—but for judgment.

5 God can’t stomach arrogance or pretense;
   believe me, he’ll put those upstarts in their place.

6 Guilt is banished through love and truth;
   Fear-of-God deflects evil.

7 When God approves of your life,
   even your enemies will end up shaking your hand.

8 Far better to be right and poor
   than to be wrong and rich.

9 We plan the way we want to live,
   but only God makes us able to live it.
