(Proverbs 19:21 KJV) There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand.
I have heard that rocks can actually grow in your garden. There is something about the ground heating and cooling that causes expansion and contraction. Through a long process the smaller particles can settle under the bigger stones and actually work them toward the surface. They rise to prominence, or in the word used here they “stand” (6965). The word means to arise or stand up.
We can make all kinds of plans and work all kind of schemes. They will eventually fail if they are laid out in conflict with the standards of God. On the other hand, obedience will cause long term victory.
So? Do you want a short term feel good or a long term success? God will not be mocked. Why not work on doing it His way?
