Passage: Proverbs 16:9

Proverbs 16:9 – If You but Trust in God to Guide You

Summary

God will guide you.

Analysis

This saying expresses the theme of God's guidance. See also Proverbs 19:21; 20:24; 27:1; Genesis 24 and 37-50. James 4:13-17 expresses the same "the Lord willing" attitude toward life. The message is taken up in George Neumark's seventeenth-century hymn, "If You But Trust in God to Guide You."
