I Couldn't Have Said It Better Myself

As we were reading last night, we came across a scripture that holds a lot of meaning in it for me, and I pray my kids paid attention to it as well.
Proverbs 19:3 (NLT)
People ruin their lives by their own foolishness and then are angry at the Lord.
We have a tendency to make choices and decisions and when they go completely amuck, we then get angry and blame God.  We are quick to say "if God is so all knowing, powerful, etc. then He wouldn't have let or allowed...."
We forget that God is such a loving God, He is not a dictator and will not force us to do what He knows to be right and best for us.  He is a gentleman at all times.  How do we go off on our own way and then get mad at GOD because it doesn't go the way WE PLANNED????
His Word clearly tells us in Proverbs 16:9 - The mind of man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.  And in Proverbs 19:21 - Many plans are in a man's heart, but the counsel of the Lord will stand.
When we get to the point of thinking we know what is best for our lives and we know exactly how it should take place, we can only expect disaster to come in some form.  God is all perfect and knowing and He has our best interest at heart.  If our plans turn to a big mess, we have no one to blame but ourselves.
Praying we will seek His wisdom and direction for our lives and that we would follow the path that He has set for us.  His way is perfect and His plan is flawless.
