Prov 16:1 The preparations of the heart belong to man, But the answer of the tongue is from the Lord.
Prov 16:33 The lot is cast into the lap, But its every decision is from the Lord.
Prov 21:31 The horse is prepared for the day of battle, But deliverance is of the Lord.
Once we received the word, or guidance, or instruction from the Lord then we are like a horse that is ready for the battle. We are like the lots that are ready to be cast into the lap. Our heart is prepared and planned to execute His instruction. When we are ready in this state of preparation and planning, then we are ready to dash into the forces of the enemy. We are ready to jump over the wall that is in front of us. To execute His tasks what is the basic thing we need. We need to have faith in Him. We need to trust in His guidance. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and He shall direct your path. The battle belongs to the Lord. The horse that is ready for battle should be responsive to the direction of its rider. Likewise, we should be responsive for His every sign that He indicates us to turn right or to the left, stop, start, or go in full speed. If we live with so much understanding, we will not go out of the will of God. The horse is ready for the battle but the victory comes from the Lord. Like the lots that are cast out, every deceision that comes out of us will be from the Lord. Oh how wonderful that would be in this perverse world! God promises us this through His word that He will bring us up to the level, if we wait for His leading and trust in that leading or in other words we have to have faith in His leading. When we are in faith, we will be responsive to His signs or commands and take decisions accordingly.
