How then can man undestand his way? (Proverbs 20:24)

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope." - Jeremiah 29:11

"A man's steps are from the LORD; how then can man understand his way?" - Proverbs 20:24

The Lord knows our plans, and he plans our future for good, not evil so that we can have hope, he guides our steps, how can we understand where we're going?

I like the combination of these verses as well as Psalm 37:23 (one of my favorite verses) just for their reminder of the Lord's providence in our lives. I specifically like this proverb because it shows just how clueless we are to many of God's plans. We bumble around with our own plans and going what we think is one specific direction, but how can we understand where we're going? We don't know what's coming and the Lord does.

I wake up this morning and I have a very good idea of what's ahead of me today, I go to school because I have an idea of what I'm supposed to be doing in 10 years. But the truth is I have no understanding of what is ahead. My steps are from the Lord. This is in no way saddening to me but rather, extremely comforting.
