We may make our plans, but God has the last word. You may think everything you do is right, but the Lord judges your motives. Ask the Lord to bless your plans, and you will be successful in carrying them out. [restrict] Everything the Lord has made has its destiny; and the destiny of the wicked is destruction. The Lord hates everyone who is arrogant; he will never let them escape punishment. Be loyal and faithful and God will forgive your sin. Obey the Lord and nothing evil will happen to you. When you please the Lord, you can make your enemies into friends. It is better to have a little, honestly earned, than to have a large income, dishonestly gained. You may make your plans, but God directs your actions.
