Scripture for the day is Proverbs 16:1,9, 20:24

To humans belong the plans of the heart,
    but from the Lord comes the proper answer of the tongue.

In their hearts humans plan their course,
    but the Lord establishes their steps.

A person’s steps are directed by the Lord.
    How then can anyone understand their own way?

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, you are of eternity and I am of time, and that is why I cannot grasp how every detail of history could be under the control of your plan, and yet every human action be free and responsible. Yet they are, and I bow with fear and trembling before the incomprehensible but wonderful wisdom of this. Amen.
